I was induced with my first pregnancy. I was given the tablets, starting at 10 am, didn't really get any contractions until 8 pm. My waters broke at 10:45 pm and labour was very intense (I had slep ca. 2-3 hours per night the 2 weeks prior to birth due to PUPPS which is why I was induced). Our daughter arrived at 3:06 am, so it went rather fast. Every woman reacts differently, I had a natural birth, you always have the option of getting some form of pain relief. You'll be fine :-)

Hi - Congrats on the pregnancy! I was actually induced with my daughter. I went in on a Sunday around 3p.m and they started the potoccin around 6p.m - In all honesty, it was an okay experience. I started getting contractions, some were intense, but nothing terrible. The only thing that happend with me was that I stopped dilating at 5cm. Now, everyone is different so don't get nervous because this happened to me! =) I don't know if you are gong to use a pain medication, but I chose to have an epidural, and after I got that, I felt no pain what so ever. I felt pressure, but other than that, nothing. Good luck with everything - God bless you!
