I was induced at 38 weeks. The amniotic fluid around DS kept getting lower and lower so they induced me the next day. I didn't need anything.

Induced at 41 + 2 foetal distress. Emergency CS.

Induced at 39+6 due to PE. Had a S&S at 39 which did nothing. For the induction it was gel first, then syntocin then ARM. Ended up with emergency csar as DS didn't descend. Stayed at 3/5ths engaged.
IMO he just wasn't ready to be born. If I hadn't had PE I'm certain it wouldn't have gone the same way (ie I wouldn't have had so much intervention). The way my blood pressure was going though it was either that or a stroke :-/

I was induced at 39+6 because of PE. I had one lot of gels and an hour and a half labour. I only needed an episiotomy.

I was induced at 39+1 cuz of IUGR (no growth in 2 weeks) - just gels then syntocinon next day.
Ended up having an epidural after 5 hours of labour which seemed to speed things along (I only really wanted to have gas but it did nothing for me, and I'm a wuss )
But yeah other than the epidural - oh yes bubs was on the ECG the whole time, with that little pin on his head - everything went fine. Just a bit of tearing

Induced at 39+2 or 3 or 6 lol can't remember anyways back to the question.
Two rounds of gel
Sentonan (sp ??)
Peth shot because it was too late for an epi (originally didn't want an epi but my labour progressed pretty hard and fast)
Normal vag delivery minor tearing, 6hr labour
