It is much more painful (at least for me!). Also, while many women have been successfully induced, induction carries its own risks, one of them being an increased rate of c-section. Why are you being induced and how are you being induced?
with my first... I was induced and it was a long labor !! not to mention hard. I was giving a so called natural birth with out pain meds. yuck
with this one I was scheduled an induce but lucky... she decited to come befor, lol only a few hours befor though. and with the help of an eperdural.... yay
good luck...maybe yours will decide to come on its own.
I was inudced with both of my boys...first one was not so bad, long and strong contractions...I think the worst was from about 1:00 til 2:30 then I had Demeraol (sp) slept for and hr or so and then had baby at 4:23--second one four hours total much rougher go of it--could never get my breathing right and lost my focal point through the whole thing...never had an epidural--my hospital does not do them..both times delivered healthy baby boys over 8 1/2 lbs
