Any positive induction stories??
Went to the doctor today and was told that I FINALLY started dilating---1 cm though :/ and that my cervix is 70% effaced. I am scheduled for an induction on Thursday (going to be doing some walking and such to see if i can get this working on its own). So I have been having people say "DON'T GET INDUCED!" "I HAD A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH INDUCTION" I have been hearing this since before today. Are there any induction stories that are more on the positive side out there? With all this negativity, I have definitely become even more scared than what I already was.. If there is a semi-positive story out there, please share
I was induced with my daughter. It wasn't terrible, honestly. I did vomit during transition but I don't know if that was the pitocin or just my body. I wasn't really dilated at all when I had the cervadil put in the night before and I was at a 3 the next morning. Induction started around 10 AM and I had her at 5:30 PM. Only maybe two hours of that was hard labor pains, but nothing so unbearable that I couldn't handle it.
It will be okay, your body can handle a whole lot more than what you could possibly imagine.
