I'm 17, and my doctors want to induce me a week early. Until then, they have me going to Non-stress tests, twice a week, and an ultrasound once a week.

I would also like to talk to some young moms who have had trouble with their baby's dads...or anyone who lives in california. I just need someone to talk to about things, I'm scared, happy, every emotion out there!!!

hey arsillia :) i was induced one week early also... im not going to lie it hurts... but its not unbareable... on top of that i had back labour which is the worst labour!! i managed thru it with NO drugs except Gas (if u call it a drug, u still feel everything!! it just makes it more of a dream lol) and i had a 5hour labour, pushed for about 5mins, four pushes and he was out, no tears or stitches! im hoping im induced for my next bub too because the labour may be harder but its over SO MUCH FASTER :) trust me its a good thing!! dont stress!! just stay calm about it all and try to stand up the whole labour :)

Thank you everyone, and I am a borderline gestational diabetic, so thats why they are keeping such a close eye on everything thats going on with him.
They have only said they were going to induce me a week before his December 16th due date. I don't know if its for the best, or what?
My doctors office doesn't really take the time to sit down and explain things to me, which is irritating at times, but it it can be super frustrating. I'm only 17, and I usually go to these appointments, by myself, or with my baby daddy. He doesn't speak up much either. :(

I don't have troubles with my baby's dad, but we do have our issues from time to time - so feel free to talk to me about anything that needs to be discussed here. But it's not true that induced labor hurts worse than natural labor. I was induced on October 17th, and I had my baby on the 18th. I really don't like pain; so 5 hours into my labor I was asking for epidural, after the epidural - everything went as cool as ice until it was time for my little one to come on out of course, but just for the record - I was in labor for 19 hours in total.

Why are you on such close watch?? are you a high-risk pregnancy or something??

Iv been induced with all three of my children so im not sure if being induced hurts more but its purpose is to move you along throgh the labor more faster, but one thing i do know is that if you dont lose your composure during the bad contractions labor moves more quickly. I got the epidural with my first to kids. and did it natural with my daughter who is 8 mos. now.

I was induced because I had high blood pressure, I have only had one baby, so I don't know if induced labour hurts more or less..But it is going to hurt no matter what. And you forget all the pain as soon as you see your baby. I had an epidural half way through my labour once the contractions got to a point where I couldn't handle them anymore, so my pain was non existent after that :) I thought it was going to hurt a lot more than it did, so I was a bit surprised when it didn't..
Good luck with everything xx
