  1. Would you please your induction stories with me? I'm really nervous, as I'll be induced at 38w5d, and I don't know what to expect. Thank you!

  2. Mine may not be the norm, but it was a breeze. I was given Cervidil the night before, and when checked at 8 a.m., I was only dilated a 'fingertip,' as they said. Even so, I was started on Pitocin at 8 a.m. My water broke at 10:30 a.m., and by 11:15 I felt a lot of pressure, like I needed to push. It was then that I asked for an epidural, but it was too late. They called my OB, who had left the hospital to go shopping, since they all assumed I'd have to have a c-section later that night (one of the nurses told me this). I had to wait 20 minutes for her to return to the hospital, and THAT was the hardest part of labor. Three pushes and my dd was out, shortly before noon. No epidural, only a few stitches, and less than 4 hours of labor.

    I had heard horror stories and was scared to be induced, but after my experience, I'd do it again if I could. Btw, it was my first baby and I was 46.

    Good luck to you, and congrats!

  3. Thank you for sharing your story with me! I guess after all these years of IF (15yrs) and not thinking I'd ever get to this point, well I'm just really nervous and excited at the same time!

  4. I wasn't going to post because I didn't want to scare you.
    I won't go into major details but basically my induction happened like this:

    Admitted thurs 8 am, water finally broke saturday 8am after many doses of cervidal and one other thing (forget name, string thing.) finally delivered DD via c-section saturday 8pm after dialating to 9 cm and not going any further (baby was stuck in my pelvis.)

    It was a rough time but so worth it in the end!

    I have heard mixed stories about being induced, some good, some bad. I hope you are on the good end!

    I wish you much luck!
