Quoting ♥Austen♥Rider:" My first was 4 hrs my second was 11 hrs. There is no rule of thumb. The more relaxed you are the easier. Stress can/will stop contractions & progression. Good luck!"


I'm gonna go in there stress free! So hopefully that will work!! Thank you :)

I was induced with LO. I was scheduled for induction at 5:30 am. It wasn't until about 7:30 am that they started pitocin. They checked my cervix again and I was dilated to 5cm. Around about 10:45 am they broke my water. Then I did a few practice pushes, etc. Had him at 11:10. I was in labor about 4 hours or so. Definitely not a bad experience on my part. Had him all natural (well, except for the induction). No pain meds at all. Everything went perfect.

I was induced with my first, was put on pitocin at 10am, fully dilated at 4:10, baby out at 4:50. That's my induction story, the other 2 came on their own.

my friend started pitocin at 4am. her daughter was born at 850am. she also pushed for about 20min.

I've been induced three times- once at 8pm and had him at 1:30 the next afternoon, once at midnight and had him at 11:30 that morning and once at 6am and had him by 10:30. With my first and second, I was really not progressed on my own much- no good dilation or thinning so it took longer. With my third, I was in early labor already so he went quickly.

I had to be induced because of high blood pressure. They put cytotec in around 830am, broke my water and started pitocin at about 2:30pm, I got my epidural around 4pm, started pushing at 9:20 pm, and she was born at 10:06pm. So about 13.5 hours of labor. I wanted to have no pain medicine, but after they increased my pitocin three times in an hour I couldn't do it anymore.

It hurt me like a f'in b***h!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg I wanted to kick every person that went near my vag or cervix. I was 41 weeks when I got induced, I didn't dilate like at all with the pitocin I just had really bad contractions, after I got the epidural I dilated to ten cm in like an hour, push my son out in 15 minutes. I was in labor for 5 hours maybe 4...
