Not really I was induced last Wednesday and loved my labor it was only 6 hours
The contractions are stronger and closer together. I think that if I was never given the pitocin and allowed to continue laboring on my own I could have done without the epidural. I could breathe through my contractions until the pitocin made my contractions right after the other. I only had a few seconds between contractions instead of 39 seconds to a minute and it was too much for me. Unless I am way overdue this time I am not letting anything intervene with my labor process. No pitocin, no breaking of my waters. I'm going to let nature take its course.
Yes. My first was induced the contractions about killed me (figure of speech). But the 15 mins of pushing wasn't so bad a lot easier than contractions andy labor was 7 hours so 7 hours of horrific pain it was awful.
This one I did all natural the contractions weren't bad at all my labor was 6 hours and the only real pain was the last 30 minutes of my son coming through the canal and then 10 minutes of pushing. So 30 mins of horrific pain to my first 7 hours was amazing. Natural was so much better.
