Three inductions here. Three positive. In each case pitocin was started around 2cm, how I came in, water was broken some hours later, which really got things going.

Got to 4 with my first, 5 with my second, and got the epidural within 30-an hour. Finally got a short rest around an hour or so, woke up complete! Pushed for 2 hours/1.5 hours, then hello giant baby!

I got to 4 or 5 with my third and waited at least an hour before they even called anesthesia. They had some rule about how much IV fluid to finish first? They didn't consider that there was NO anesthesiologist in the building, and apparently wherever the nurse anesthetist went was a super cool fun place that he never ever wanted to leave. He was paged several times. After two hours total, I had to pee bad (all the fluids!) And wanted to try to poop (terrified of pooping on the table). As I was finally like "yes! Finally! Poopin!" He walked into my room. They asked me if I could come out. I told them he could wait on me now, I was pooping between contractions kthanx.

He tried three times, hitting nerves, finally got that thing in, I dozed off for ten minutes, she checked me, I was complete and didn't even need to labor down! They stated prepping the OR (long story, but my midwife wanted me to birth in the OR with an OB on standby). She checked again and called that off, and apparently she was breaking down that bed as fast as possible, because she was worried he couldn't wait! I was finally numb with no clue, one real push, tada, BABY! We were a little shocked, and happy at the speed!

Re: Positive induction stories

I've had two inductions, and both went very well! One was 12 hours, the other was 6. Good luck today, and congratulations!!

Re: Positive induction stories

My 4th baby was 8 days late he was camping out in me and no intentions on coming any time on his own. I walked in was at 3cm I get stuck at a 3 every time so they hooked me up with my iv and pitocin drip. One of the Dr.s from my Ob office came in 30 minutes after I had got there checked me I hadn't changed. So she asked to break my water I agreed nice clear fluid which was a surprise for such a late baby. ( I keep a log of my af always have so I know when to expect it, I get zero af symptoms and I do not like those surprises.)

Anyways everything sped up real fast and smoothly they decided to check me I was a 8 this is almost 4 hrs from the start. The nurse runs to call my Ob he is great!! she comes back and the room was filling with everyone plus equipment. I was already pushing with other nurse's, when my Ob comes in tease's the nurse for not calling him sooner. I deliver my second son (in 4 hrs start to finish) he was 8lbs 15 oz after he got done peeing everywhere lol!

No pain medications at all I felt great after wards a very nice birth, It changed my mind on inductions. All I have ever heard of were horror stories on the internet no one in real life that I know has had one. Well besides my mom for my sister but that was 30 some odd yrs ago so it doesn't count TeeHee

Thanks so much mamas, these have really helped calm my nerves! Things are going well so far, if not a little more slowly than I would like much less intervention than the first time which I accredit to a much better doctor! I'm just ready to be done and meet my little one and see my other kids!
