Some people though have really quick induced labour. I think it's the difference between your body being ready and happening smoothly vs not being ready so it's dragged kicking and screaming into labour.

See my pushing hurt the whole 2 hours 49 minutes. It didn't take the pain of contractions away it was just now I had something productive to do with pain. But I think it was cause she was in such a difficult position.
But yes I'd take pushing over transition which was just awful. I was sooooooooooooo relieved to reach in and touch her head to realize I was fully. I was terrified id only be 5cm or something.

It hurts like nothing you've ever felt before but you know you have no choice,everyone is telling you what to do (breath, push or don't push) so you listen,try and do what they say and you just get through it. The pain took away my ability to talk and i even had my eyes closed through it(Drug free, 3 weeks ago) so i kinda just grunted, cried out from the pain and did it.
Thankfully it doesn't last long and you know you will have a baby shortly. Thankfully I had only 15minutes of this intensity and pushing. Compare that to all the stress of getting pregnant, worrying while pregnant then it really is such a short time.
Then comes the amazing happy hormone rush- I did it!!! And I have a beautiful bub. So worth it all!!

I was induced with my first.
It just gives you no lead up time. It's like going from 0-100km in 0.01 seconds. You don't go from light contractions to medium to strong, you just go from nothing to strong.
For me it was dreadful but not everyone is the same.

But yep, everyone is different. I was really scared of being induced but stayed positive and kept active throughout the labour. Once it all began I just focused on my body and what I needed to do.

I was induced and I didn't think the contractions were that bad.. Maybe it's because I didn't have anything to compare it to. They turned up the meds at a stage and a few minutes later, the contractions were intense. I looked at the midwife and said "are you kidding me? Holy ****! Turn that down. No way!" She laughed and did turn it back down. I got to 7cm in the bath and with gas and then the transition phase started. There was no break. Not even 1 second. I lost control and couldn't take it anymore.
I'm not sure if women normally get a break when they're not induced.. It was intense.

I have had 6 bubs. 3 of those were induced. The first 2 induction the pain was less than when I went spontaneous. My 3rd i had a bad reaction to induction drug due to it being my 6th. I won't go into that as it is really rare and I still get upset thinking about it.

Yes this is my first bub.
So being induced could maybe mean a quicker labour?

The contractions for my first were also in my back and I watched them on the monitor go up to the top of the chart, down and straight back up again. There was NO break. It was painful but I did get through it. I don't remember as much of my first labour as my 2nd because it was full on and I think to cope my brain has blocked it out.
