Hello everyone. I'm 40wks-3days pregnant (1cm dialated, 50% effaced) and I'm a FTM. I am being induced either Tuesday or Wednesday and I am very nervous. I understand that they will try to soften my cervix  more and then put me on Pitocin (I think that's how it's spelled) . Does anyone have any advice or want to share their story about what happened when they were induced? I'm praying everything goes well and I know hearing some stories will put me at ease. TIA

I was emergency induced with my daughter. Because of my heart I couldn't sit up to adjust and relieve pain. Yes, the pitocin is to make contractions happen so yes, you may want to become familiar with pain relieving options. I am pregnant with my second and am debating being induced because I don't know what naturally going into labor is!
