    Hopeful from what I have read induction usually leads to contractions starting much harder and faster so you don't get the gradual build up to prepare yourself like you would with a natural start. I think you are then more likely to get an epidural, not sure how much that bothers you. I've heard of people just getting the epi with the syntocin drip straight away because once that starts the pain can be quite bad.

    It really depends on how you want your labour to progress I think.

    I will give you my experience of induction.

    I think the contractions definitely start harder and faster. I had a stretch and sweep at about 11am. They inserted a Foley catheter at about 5pm (which fell out at about 7pm). They then gave me an epidural at 11pm and then broke my waters and started syntocin.
    To be honest I didn't feel a thing other than being 'uncomfortable' from the stretch and sweep.
    By 5am I was fully dilated and ready to push but again no feeling of it (and no urge to push either).
    I did end up having vacuum assist but that was due to my little miss having both arms up across her face and elbows both in the way.

    Hopeful inducing at term is fine I was told but earlier isn't great... I think the longer it goes the higher the risk personally so depends on you. My cousins wife went to 42 weeks and he still wasn't ready but someone I know induced at 38 weeks and she wasn't ready to come either so really you can't win do what's right for both of you and if your doctor is happy then go with it... labour in general I am sure will be painful

    Thanks so much ladies for the info, much appreciated!
    I hadn't even thought anything about getting an induction until my Dr dangled the carrot today. I think I'm going to hang out until my due date which is only Friday week anyway and then think about it after that when I'm past 40weeks.
    So more Tv and DVDs for me it looks like

    Yay Gypsiechild! So exciting. I'm not going to lie- it's super painful but also pretty amazing what our bodies are capable of! You will do great and you'll have your bub in your arms which will make every second of the awful IVF, pregnancy and labor worth it.

    Our little lady arrived yesterday morning. Her name is Mara, which means 'of the sea' in Irish. She is a whopping 4.5 kgs!!!!! So no wonder I had such bad symphysitis. The c/section ended up being the best decision ever as there's no way she would have ended up being delivered naturally! I have no idea how she managed to grow so big, I really wasn't that big and apparently the placenta was huge as well - where did it all come from!? Anyway, she's here, she's great, and we're just about to enter the feeding frenzy, with damaged nipples and supply issues and a big fat hungry overdue baby - woohoo!!! Here we go!!!!!
