Induction at 39 weeks, how did it work out for you?

I was induced at 38+6 due to pre eclempsia. I ended up having a forceps delivery which was not great. From the experience I certainly wouldn't chose to be induced if I didn't have to for medical reasons.

Induced at 38/39 for blood pressure. Ended in emergency cs. I definitely would not opt for induction unless medically necessary.

I was induced at 39 weeks due yo unstable sugar with gestational diabetes.
Had 1 dose of gel on the Wednesday morning, not much happened, small contractions. Had a second dose of gel later on that night. Spent the Wednesday night on the maternity ward to get some rest as not much much was happening.
Woke up the Thursday morning and had my waters broken and put on the drip... An hour in and i had an epi, slept for a bit then woke up and was 9cm dilated. An hour later DD was born
The epi was the best thing i did... I was so exhausted and it let me rest up until go time.
If you have and specific questions id be happy to answer for you?
All in all i had a pretty good induction

I was induced with my 3rd at 39+2 because of gestational diabetes.
I had 1 dose of gel at 8am, contractions started within 20minutes. Bubs was born 4.5hours later. The midwife didn't believe me when I said needed to push as I was still laughing and chatting to her, but to her surprise I was fully dialated. Definitely the best and easiest births of them all.
I would definitely be induced again if needed.

I was induced with DD at 40 + 12. I had the gel, waters broken and put on the drip. I had an epidural as contractions come on really fast and close together. 7 hour labour. I was also induced with DS at 40 + 8. I had the gel and waters broken. Again contractions were really fast and close together so had an epidural. 7 hour labour as well.
I am currently pregnant with my 3rd so I would have no problem being induced again.

I just found out today that I may need to be induced at 39 weeks for medical reasons, and just trying to weigh it all up.
I was induced at 40 weeks first time around, which was fairly straight forward, but am concerned that being induced earlier may not be so straight forward.
Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Had 2 39 inducements and sorry to say but they were horrible. Mine was due to a blood clot (PE-lung clot) my first labour was 39hrs and because of the clot I wasn't allowed to have an epidural I delivered naturally but it was traumatic. My 2nd was pretty straight forward but only a 6hr labour, not allowed drugs and delivered fine. Once I had my 3rd and realised labour actually wasn't THAT painful I realised how horrible inductions were and would never have one again! EVER

I was induced at 38+3 as I was bleeding and then had a hindwater leak - things did not progress so my waters were broken and I was put on the drip. Four hours after the drip went in and after a shot of pethidine DS was born. I had a wonderful if somewhat intense labour but I have nothing to compare it to, and would not hesitate to be induced again if needed.
DS was born screaming so there were no issues there. He was a bit slow to get the hang of feeding but with some great midwives we got there pretty quickly.

I've been induced at 40+5, 38+3 and 39+2.
The easiest and best labour was the 38+3, but my other 2 were much bigger babies.
