Im pregnant with my 3rd. With my son which was my 2nd, i was induced at 36 weeks due to his large size and i had a tumor on my ovary. They started me on a tuesday night at 10 p.m. hooked me to an IV with pitocin. Nothing was happening so on wednesday morning they put a pill into my vagina to help dilate my cervix. That failed lol so thursday morning they wanted to insert this thing called a foley bulb and i was scared out if my freaking mind because i heard they were painful. I was tired so decided to do it. They put it in and it slowly inflates like a balloon and opens ur cervix then falls out once u reach 4 cm. By thursday night it worked and i got an epidural for pain. I gave birth at 1 a.m friday morning. Took 2 full days and was exhausting! Just go in open minded and be aware that it could go really slow or really fast. Eat really well too before u go in cuz u just dont kniw how long itll take. Take care and wishing u a healthy birth! :)
