Being induced tommorow. They are starting with propess, has anyone any experiences of this? Any tips for the induction process generally? Feeling abit scared about it all!

Take an ipad/magazines/book with you. It can be a long process. Also ear plugs! Wards are noisy places.

I was induced at 6.00pm. By 11.00pm the next evening I was holding my baby.

Lots of luck.

And snacks and water or squash!

Good luck and if you want pain relief while they are administering don't be afraid to ask for it, like gas and air!

oh yes snacks are a must.

Walk around lots. I swear this helped me. I also asked for a medicine ball to bounce on and did a lot of walking up and down stairs

Yy Peach I needed the ball and walking for induction 2 which took much longer, induction 1 I had the gel, sleeping tablets as it was night time and was in full on labour in the middle of the night!

How many weeks are you op?

39+1, had a stretch and sweep a couple of days ago and lost mucas plug so hoping it's all a step in the right direction!

Good luck Happily. Keep us updated. Got my 4 week old sleeping on my chest right now. He was worth the wait!

Losing mucus plug sounds v positive, I had before ind 1 which was super quick! Hope things are going well!
