    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 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+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
