I got induced and it was a good experience for me. Basically had minor cramps until my water broke, then things got real intense real fast (too fast for an epidural) and my son was born < 3 hours later. Good luck with the wait!

Sorry- I remember how crabby I was on my due date and no baby!  You count down for many months and then NOTHING and you are huge and uncomfortable.  I had a scheduled induction, but my water ended up leaking before.  They had to induce me because I never had natural labor contractions.  Honestly, I preferred it that way, because my husband and I had a really pleasant nice ride to the hospital.  I wasn’t in pain and we just chatted, laughed, and enjoyed our final moments of just us- it was really memorable for me, and I think the whole laboring at home thing would have driven me nuts!  If you are induced, the only thing I would say is that labor pains don’t gradually increase like they are supposed to with natural labor- I literally went from 0 to 100 the instant the pitocin kicked in so its harder for your body to get used to the pain.  If you are planning on getting an epidural I might get one before it kicks in, because it was agonizing.  I thought why get one when I was still pretty comfortable?  Luckily I didn’t have to wait too long as it wasn’t a busy day in the hospital, but now I know if I have a second and need pitocin again!
