    Anyway, I was 40+3 and had been going in for monitoring and extra scans very frequently for the last 3 weeks when the decision to induce was made. Low fluid, reduced movements, reducing fundal height, etc.

    So on induction day I was 4 cm, and they broke my water. I was on constant fetal monitoring, which was hospital policy as well as genuine concern for her welfare. There were concerns about her position, whether she'd be distressed or get stuck. I tried to negotiate with hospital staff to not be on the monitors, but they wouldn't even consider it. I refused to lie in the bed and knelt or stood beside it instead.

    I had no further interventions at all, 50 minute labour, 2 minutes pushing and she was in my arms. Safe and well.

    Mine is a very positive induction story, and I know how lucky I am. I got a drug free induced birth, so don't think all inductions are terrible.
    Thanks this gives me some hope

    Does it hurt when they break your waters?

    Bear in mind I cried when they checked if I was dilated as it hurt! So very sensitive.

    Without sounding negative, prepare yourself for some pain. Some people find it uncomfortable, but I found it the most painful thing ever in my whole life - however, it was fast and did make progression faster.

    Best wishes, try go with it and not rush things - I wish I had of just chilled out a bit more ( in the wonderful world of hindsight).

    It didn't hurt me at all but then it didn't hurt when they checked if I was dilated, which I was, 2cm.

    Didn't hurt at all.

    I found internals were painful until I was 4cm, but had my waters broken at 2cm and it wasn't painful at all.

    Most painful thing I've ever experienced with ds1. I was in labour already and supposedly I was 4cm (which I believe I was only 2-3cm.)

    With dd it did hurt because she had to pull my cervix forward a bit as they was no fluid between dd's head and the membranes so she needed to stretch my cervix into a better position. It took 30min.

    I was induced at 41 weeks with DS. Gels at 9pm, contractions started 9:30pm. The plan was for more gels at 2am and then break waters at 7:30am. Contractions continued, and I had pethidine as I had no break between contractions. That was at about 4 am I think. I didn't need any more gels- and my water broke spontaneously at some point..... Then I kept going, rested well until about 7 I think- 5cm and things went through the roof! I was put on monitor because my oxygen levels were dropping due to hyperventilating! I decided an epidural would be best for me- seeing as I didn't think I was even at transition yet!! Well, 20-30 mins after epidural, DS was born (forceps). So next time I know transition can start from 5cm- I went from 5 to son born in 45 mins!!!! I wouldn't say being induced was a bad experience though! Good memories of it, and I'm looking for war to labour with #2!

    I was to be induced with DD's 2 & 3. Both times I went in the afternoon before to have the gel put in and both times they said it wasn't needed as I was already 1-2cm dilated.

    The next morning I had my waters broken, no need to have the drip, just breaking my waters started things. DD2 was born 3 hours after they broke my waters, DD3 only took an hour!

    DD2 was 10 days past her due date and DD3 was 5 days past.

    Goodluck.

    Another positive induction story here I was induced by ARM then a syntocin drip for DD2. I had a 2 hour labour & only used gas at the end, with DD1 I had gas and morphine
