So I'm getting induced tomorrow at 7am as they have recently discovered today that I have pre eclampsia. I'm 1-2cm dilated and I was wondering if when they put the small instrument in if it hurts or? (not as I'm not very good with pain). I'll also be getting put on an iv drip with the hormones that'll start contractions, I've heard that they can be unbearable so I'll more than likely be getting an epidural as it seems to be most effective. Has anyone ever been through this before, and if so how long did labour last? Did the water breakage hurt?
