    I was induced at 39+2 for pre-eclampsia. All it took was stretch and sweep and cervadil. I dialted to 10cm etc, but ended up in emergency c-section as baby stuck. Also got eipdural which killed off contractions.Also had complications afterwards.BUT, if you have had a successful induction before, I would think 2nd time round would be fine aswell. I think by 39 weeks risks to baby are minimal in terms of being too early etc.Good luck

    I will tell you next week.

    They were going to induce me last week but my score on bishop scale was way too low, due being Closed, closed, unbelievable closed according to my ob and still 2 cm long. So are going to try again on tues when I turn 39 weeks.

    Hi I was recently induced at 38 weeks due to severe back pain and spasm (I write this as i feed my little pumpkin)
    I was admitted first thing in the morning and the epidural was places before the induction began, my waters were broken then two hours later I was given the drip to move things along, although I was contracting I was able to relax, sleep and enjoy my labour, 10 hours later the top ups were stopped and I was able to feel labour and pushed for 40 mins with no pain relief to give birth to her, it was the best decision I made.
    The epidural before hand made the experience for my self as well as my DH enjoyable to say the least and I was not exhausted when I needed to work to get her out. I had been induced with my DS ten years prior and had no epidural it was a night mare with ventouse delivery. This time I didn't even have stitches highly recommended

    I have been induced at 38 and 37 weeks. Both were very straight forward and fast. I didn't have any problems with them being earlier. I will no doubt be induced early this time round too and have no problem with that. Good luck.

    With DS I was induced at 38w2d due to toxemia. Had a 3.45 hour intense labour & 10 minutes from waters breaking to him being born.

    My body was ready to give birth, had one lot of the gel and off we went.

    I think it depends whether your body is ready or not. If you're induced and your body/the baby aren't ready, it's not going to be pleasant.
    I was induced at 37+4 for medical reasons and everything was perfect. Gel on cervix started contractions straight away. Then waters broken and 1 hour later DS was born. Didn't require the drip. But my OB said that my body must have been ready and possibly would have gone into labour soon without induction.
    Try to get a stretch & sweep a couple of days before the induction to help get things ready.

    Hi, I was induced at 38 weeks. Had a perfect delivery: 3.5 hours, only needed gas, no problems. The only problem that I believe occured due to early induction was that baby wasnt fully ready, she slept for days after birth & wouldnt wake for feeds. I could have handled feedings better in hindsight but was 1st time mum & scared, bub ended up bottlefed & I got PND, & My milk never came in. However, 2nd bub was induced at 42 weeks & had easier & shorter labour (40 minutes) & no feeding dramas, was straight on the boob & fully alert. Good luck!
