I was induced at 37 and 1 day because bubs was small and they thought he was better out than in. I was induced by balloon Catheter that night and the pains from that were like contractions all night. Then next morning they took it out, broke my waters at 9am and bubs was born at 1256pm. Four hour labour and all went well but ended up getting pre eclampsia during labour and they said I needed to have the epidural to help with the blood pressure. Also had a magnesium sulphate drip in and was bed bound. But other than that all was well. Contractions were pretty intense and came quickly but were bearable.
