Please tell me your experience if you were induced.
I will be 40 wks the date of my induction and also 4cm dilated and 70% effaced. My buggest fear is ending up having to have a c-section. This will be my 3rd pregnancy and my first two were successful natural vaginal births. Maybe im just overthinking we will see. Duedate/induction date: 01/18/14
Thank you!

My don't want others stories. Yours is going to be different from everyone else. Just relax and take it step by step. Being 4 cm dilated already is a good sign, but it may also depend on why you r being induced. What is is what is also. If you do end up having a c section it will be ok....maybe not the way you wanted but not the end of the world either. There are lots of people that get induced and have a natural delivery.

My 2nd was an induction at 41 weeks and it was the easiest birth of all 3 of mine. I was fully effaced and 2cm dilated when I got induced. They broke my waters and put the drip in and told me to go for a walk around the gardens as it could be a few hours.
I made it to the bathroom and back before I started contracting. After 20mins I was pushing and 50mins from the first contraction he was born. I had no pain relief and no stitches or grazing at all!!!
Good luck.
