I was induced with both my children, the first because I was a bit ill (kidney infection) and we needed him out. And the second was because she was 2 weeks late! (no one needs that extra 2 weeks!)
The first labour took 36 hours, one lot of cream and further induction IV drip, as cream wasnt enough to kick start it.Second labour was 17 hours, same story, cream wasnt enough, IV drip. When they give you the drip its pretty much full steam ahead without much warning!No epidural with either, just pethadine and gas. I do remember screaming out with the second though for an epidural but I was too late, oops..Good luck and happy delivery
....I meant to add. Dont be frightened. I know its easy for me to say, but Im serious, you will get through it and it will all be in the past soon. You'll be busy staring at your new baby straight after its born to think about what you just went through All the best, and try not to worry, the hospital will look after you.
i am very scared... m jst about to be induced coz i am a week late.... the waiting is killing me thts why i want to be induced...... i dnt rilly no wht to expect?????
i was induced with 2 of my babies first took 29hr to start and then another 29hr before she was born and i had to have a epidural for the pain , and second one 2 days but my labour was so fast i didnt no what was happening she was out in 15 min with just gas and air . labour although painful at the time as soon as your lo is hear u forget the pain i gave birth 8 weeks ago n cant realy remember the pain all i can remember is the gas and air so there is nothing to be afraid of i no easyer said i was pooing my pants when they put the pessary in but it was fine and well worth it when your snuggling your bundle of joy x
