Are induced contractions more painful.

With my first son I was not Induced but with my 2nd I was... From my experience it IS a lot more painful. There are a few ways they induce labor. I was induced with oxytocin also known as Pitocin thru an IV. This way they could adjust the amount I needed depending on how my labor progressed. First she gave me to much and I was in an enormous amount of pain. Don't let that scare you they can easily adjust the amount of oxytocin that goes thru your IV so that you aren't in to much pain. Don't be scared if you have to get induced your a woman you can handle ANYTHING =)

I had to wait so long for them to come in and give me my epidural I was 8 1/2 cm when he gave it to me. They numbed me so much I couldn't feel from my neck down AND as I was laying in the bed when the doctor came in the check he had to flip me over right away because my baby was already half way out and I didn't even know because they numbed me so late and so much. Needless to say he was out 1 minute later lol

    I found the contractions with my two inductions more painful too. The one I didn't have other drugs with was much more tolerable though. I prefer my natural births or striping my membranes over pitocin though.
