HEATHER - March 5

anyone else in the same boat? As much as I wanna see my little guy I am so afraid to be induced, I was 16 days over with my dd and the NMW wont let me go more than 7/10 days this time, and Im just afraid he wont come before then, I know my dd's due date was right casue I had 2 early on u/s that checked for dating. So that makes me worry that this one wont come that quick either, I would much rather go into labor naturally and beable to try to deal with it than have to be strapped to a bed with iv's and a epidural cause the contractions are un bearable, or worse yet need a c-section cause the baby cant handle the induction...

I was induced with my second son and it was wonderful. I went in at about 4:00 and had an epidural as soon as I felt the contractions and had my son my 9:30. I didn't feel a thing and the labor went smooth. I only pushed for about 10 minutes. I was great! Don't worry!

I was induced with my dd and it was great as the labour was so quick, I was induced at 6.30am started to get contractions at about 9.30am, the contractions were very close and intense so I was given the epidural early (1 1/2 cm) and from then didn't feel a thing and had dd less at 3pm! So don't worry!!!!

heather - i was induced last wednesday... it did take a while for it to work, but my labour in itself was only 2.5 hours.. i started the induction on wed at 4:30 pm.. they had me on iv till 10 pm.. then i had to spend the night at the hospital. thursday, i got induced again at 10:30 am.. I was getting contractions every 3 minutes, but wasn't feeling them at all. at 8 pm is when i went into active labour and my little boy as born at 10:37 pm. I didn't have an epidural and it wasn't so bad.. he was a big boy at 8 lbs and 12 ounces and 23 inches long. I kinda didn't mind being in the hospital cuz you knew that ur baby will come sooner than later, plus the nurses are so nice.. :) everything was good except for hospital food. Good luck with urs!

Why is your docs justification to induce you!?! it is your choice and if all is going well, you can simply say NO and let nature takes its course. My m/w told me that actually 41 weeks plus 5 days is the average time for a pregnancy and that one can easily and safely go over 2 weeks with no worry if all shows well...good luck!!!

I was induced with my son and I HATED IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Ended up with C-section due to position of son.. but the contractions came on sooo bad with the pitocen... I am hoping for a VBAC this go round and going to try to go without induction and without meds... we'll see how far I get.. but that is my hopes!

i am in the same boat, i'm getting induced on thursday and a little scared of how hard the contractions might come. i got a non-stress test today and during the 20 or 30 minutes i had two big contractions that i did not feel. but she said they lasted a good 90 seconds and were big. why wouldn't i feel it then? but i'm 40 weeks and measuring 45 weeks. baby has been measuring larger all along, so we're expec ting a 9-10 pounder and probably 22-23 inches long. i'll let you know but they grow them big on my husbands side, lol. since he is big i'm planning on an epideral.

I am 34wks and this whole time I have not wanted to be induced, but I have started watching all the baby shows....Baby Story, House of Babies, Birth Day, and Bringing Home Baby and they have changed my mind. If it comes down to it I will go that route. Those shows have helped me a lot and have prepared me quite a bit.

I have had 2 inductions now with my last one being just a week ago (baby boy) and both were wonderful. The first took 5.5 hours start to finish and the most recent was only 3.75 hours with 2 pushes to get him out. The contractions are pretty bad with the pitocin but as long as you are positive and open to pain meds than all will be well. I don't plan on having any more children but if I were to get pregnant inductions no longer scare me!

I had to be induced because my blood pressure was too high. I might just have a high pain tolerance but I thought it was great. I had no drugs of any kind and my labour was only 5 hrs. The contractions only got really bad when it was about 1/2 hr before it was time for me to push. Once I had the urge to push the pain of the contractions went away. Call me crazy but I can't wait to experience it again in 2yrs.

I was induced with my daughter and was a little nervous about that too...well it happened so quickly that I didn't really have too much time to be nervous. I went for my check up one day before my due date and was already dialated 2cm and had HBP so I was sent right over to the hospital. To tell you the truth I had a very good labor - only 7hrs after they broke my water, and all natural until right before I pushed, which was lovely b/c I felt not pain when she was coming out!! LOL I had one TERRIBLE hour but it went by so quickly b/c of the speed of my contractions. That was b/c of the pitocin too...speeds them up...I'd rather have a fast hard labor than a long drawn out one...

I was induced on a Monday at 5 am and ended up being rushed in for emergency c-section at 6am Wed., 20 hours after having my water broken. My son was over 10 lbs when born. The pitocen, breaking of waters and epidural were a breeze though, he just wouldn't move down because of his size. And you're not strapped to the bed, not sure if you meant that literally or not, lol. I actually was able to get a little sleep after the epidural. Good luck to you!
