I'm getting indiced today, just wondering from being induced to giving birth how long it took for you?

Pessary in at about 4pm. Firstly pains (like bad period) about 8pm. First contraction about 10am with waters breaking then. Baby born about 7pm.
Good luck!

Pessaries at 1pm and 7pm, waters artificially broken my midwife at 1.30pm the next day, drip put in at 2pm. Told to expect baby around 5am but thankfully was born at ten to 7 that night smile best of luck.

Put straight on drip due to complications. Baby born naturally 16 hours later.

Pessaries at noon and 6pm. Mild contractions from 9pm, waters broken at 1.45am and born at 3.20am. Second birth, though, and no epidural so that helped keep it quick

First 24hr pessary at 5pm. NOTHING happrned!! 7.30pm following day second pessary put in, period type pains began not long after, baby born at 11.40pm. Didn't really feel like I was in labour until about 10pm, not all inductions are bad! Good luck!

So once it got going it was very quick but be prepared for a long wait....

Pessary in at 9pm, mini contractions (not bad) all night, went for a walk in morning (def advise if poss) and waters broke naturally at 11am. Had to go on a drip as there was meconium in the waters and baby born by ventouse at 2.30am. Good luck! Movement is best for as long as you can- everything slowed down after the epidural!

Midwives able to break waters at 11.40am, (no gel needed) was having mild contractions but first proper 'ouch, I remember this really hurts' one around 1pm.
In active labour (4cm) at 3pm, fully dilated 4.15pm, baby born 4.39pm, so 5 hrs from start to finish.

She was my second though so perhaps that made it faster.

Waters artificially broken at midnight, drip in at 1am, first contraction at 2am and DD was born at 8am. Everyone was slightly surprised at how quickly it was, as they didn't turn the drip up much.

llammallamamissesmama Tue 23-Jun-15 07:28:28

Pessary at 5pm. Labour fully established by midnight. Baby born at 8am. All the very best - update us.

Oh and if the pessary sends you sky high with crazy wild persistent contractions, ask them to take it out!! I wish I had, I was very clearly "set off" and underway and needed no further help "ripening" but the staff were busy and I wasn't thinking clearly!

hazelnutlatte Tue 23-Jun-15 07:28:55

Pessary in at 2pm, then another late evening sometime, nothing happened so drip at 6am, again nothing much happened so c section at 7pm.

TheEmpressofBlandings Tue 23-Jun-15 07:33:48

Induction straight onto drip. First contractions 8pm, baby born 2 hours 20 minutes later. Took everyone a bit by surprise!

Pessary in and out from Tuesday morning toThursday. Up and down intensity contractions during that time. No dilation. Waters broken artificially Friday lunchtime, baby born Friday evening. A long one, sorry!

MrsBungle Tue 23-Jun-15 07:35:04

I was given the drop straightaway. 1 hour 54 minutes later out popped ds in a lovely easy birth.

MrsBungle Tue 23-Jun-15 07:35:15

First pessary in approx. 9pm Wednesday.
Some mild contracting etc. and further pessaries over next 24 hours.
Water broke when I got up Friday morning.
