My friend just had one a couple of weeks ago.. didn't work for her unfortunately :(
It's a Foley catheter. They suck. Gl mama
So it's not to bad just really uncomfortable and it started my contractions which are painful. They will offer pain meds through the IV trust me take them
I've heard it's uncomfortable simply from the pressure it creates against your cervix. If you are truly closed though, the Foley bulb won't be able to pass through the cervical opening. Good luck!
I've been getting induced since Monday at midnight and they did that. It didn't really hurt, but also they applied a numb gel inside the vagina and they also put numb medication thru the IV. The balloon will gall out once ur cervix is as the size of the balloon which is apparently 3 cm
I am in getting induced now they are doing the balloons thing shortly I will let you know. The way they made it sound it shouldn't be to horrible but I will let you know
I've never heard of a balloon procedure before.. please keep us posted...
Im hoping the brownish blood is my mucus plug coming out but im not sure.a
