    I was induced on Wednesday and had my baby girl that day! If you need Cervidil they will have you go into the hospital the night before to have that put in. If you don't need it, you will go in the next morning probably.

    When I was induced, I got to the hospital, got to my room, got hooked up to an IV and and they started pitocin about an hour after I got there. Contractions started soon after, and as soon as I started feeling pain from them I asked for my epidural.

    I was in labor from about 8:30am til 7:14pm when my baby was born.

    It was a pretty good experience, I have no complaints about the induction process.

    You can read more about it in my birth story in the birth stories section if you want. I'm from the US too so our experiences will probably be pretty similar!

    Good luck with it!

    I was induced too and had a good experience. Had a pessary the night before, did nothing. Had my waters broken, some contractions came and they werent that bad. After a couple of hours i was put on a drip at the lowest setting and the contractions came fast and furious. Coped well with gas and air. She cranked it up and they were so painful but only for the last 30 mins. Had my baby after that so on the drip i had her within an hour.

    Good luck being induced! You were saying the other day that you were hoping they'd either induce you or give you a sweep! So, yay!
    Enjoy your last week of being pregnant! :happydance:
