Getting Induced

FTM and I am being induced Thursday Morning (very excited to meet my girl). Any recommendations or things you wish you knew going into your first induction?

Remember that it could take some time, bring your own pillow and blanket, try to rest/sleep as much as you can(its hard)

Me to girl I’m nervous

I don’t mean to be negative but sleeping without an epidural is nearly impossible. As soon as cramping/contractions started for me and they told me I needed to rest to be able to possibly push in the morning…I said to please bring the anesthesiologist, I need a word with him😅. I was able to rest. By the time my water broke and I was fully dilated, the epidural had already worn off quite a bit and I could feel the contractions painlessly. I was also, unfortunately, cut open(episiotomy) due to my baby girls big ole head causing too much bleeding and needing more space to come out. I just wasn’t spontaneously ripping on my own. Overall, a pleasant experience for myself.
