Hi My doctor plans to induce me next week sometime (if my cervix is dialated) or the following week. I am a first time mom and am quite nervous about being induced. Not quite sure what to expect. Anyone have any stories?

I'm scheduled to be induced on the 25th but with my cervix dilated at 3cm I'm hoping I will go on my own. I've heard that being induce bring on contractions stronger than what they usually would be. I don't want to feel anything worser than what I've felt with my previous pregnancies. So that's why I hope that I'll go before then.

I will be induced on the 25th or 26th if I don't go before then. I hope I go before then too, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I've heard that inducing increases your risk of having a c-section, which I'm okay with. But, I don't really want to go through 15 hours of labor and then get told I have to have a c-section, know what I mean?

I am due 11-02 and I am being induced with my second little boy on the 26th. I had my third ultrasound today and he is already over 8lbs. My doctor said that my chances of having a c-section are only about 10% and I am only a fingertip dialated and my babys head isnt even in the birth ca___l yet. So only one week to go! good luck ladies. I was induced with my first son and it went perfect, only 8-9hrs of labor.

Yep, on the 24th... but hopefully I won't make it to that day. I'm due the 28th but he is BIG already. I was induced with my other 2 children, and I loved it. Mainly for the fact that I didn't have to worry about my water breaking at an inconvenient time or my husband not being around. With my first, I went in at 7 the night before, they gave me cervidil and a slow drip of pitocin, at 5 the next morning, my doc came in and broke my water, before 1, I was holding my baby girl. My 2nd was easier, in at 6am baby at 6pm.
