I had FIVE inductions... with four pregnancies!  The first was a nightmare, but I was only 36 weeks and my ob was going on Vacation.  I was ignorant when it came to child birth at the time and agreed.  The first time failed, and he set me up for an induction with his partner at 39 weeks, 4 days - that was great.  All of the others were wonderful!

Yes. I was 37 and due to my age and the fact that my doctor was going on vacation, they induced me the day after my due date. Everything went fine, but I'd like to go into labor naturally this time if possible, mostly because it's annoying to have to be hooked up to an IV the whole time for the pitocin.

Yes. Both of my pregnancies I had inductions with. DD5 was 40wks 1 day and YDD was 41wks 1 day when they induced. Had no issues with it except it took forever. My first kinda sucked cause I had a regular doctor and they wouldn't let me eat till after I had her. Went 12+ hours without food. YDD I did get to eat so it wasn't bad at all. I honestly don't think I would have went into labor on my own as I never really experienced contractions until well into my inductions.

I had an Induction that didn't go so well and turned into an emergency c-section.

All my kids have been/ will be induction births. Usually between 38 and 39 weeks I start spilling protein indicating the start of pre e so I get induced before it can get severe.
