Robert (31 Jan 04) & Jeremy (7 Dec 05 @30 weeks)

I had gel inserted at 5pm.. Bubs was born at 9:14pm!

3.9kg & 55cm

5 days overdue

Cord was also around his neck but thankfully the midwife said it was a particularly long cord so didn't strangle him!

Was my second bub. First bub was born 9 days over (no iduction) and labour was 5hrs. She was 4kg & 50.5cm.

Joanne, WA, DD 22.05.06 & DS 04.10.07

26 hours!!
Tried gel, something in a drip, and then broke my waters.(he didnt want to come out!).
He went into fetal distress and had to go into the special care nursery for 24hrs.
Induced 4 days over as i had PUPPs.
1st baby(7 years ago now!!!)

My second came naturally 1 day over and was MUCH easier!! I hope this one is even easier!!
Pregnancy #01:
Induced 40w 10days
1 dose of gel applied 6pm
Gave birth to baby girl 3am (9hrs)
56cm long
3rd degree tear
Walked back to my room

Pregnancy #02:
Induced at 40w due to size of #01
1 dose gel applied 6am
Allergic reaction to gel (bad burning sensation inside!!!)
Baby spent hours in birth canal and was starting to get distressed
No time for epidural
Oxytocin drip inserted
20min from 3cm dilated to 10cm and baby boy born
1st degree tear
Head didn't mould so gave birth to full sized head!!!
Couldn't walk back to my room
The most painful thing I have EVER encountered due to the speed with which the last 20 min happened.

Mental note to self - always have epidural inserted before oxytocin drip......

I wasn't induced but i might know why your waters were green. Mine were too. It's called miconium and it is when bubs does a poo inside usually due to fetal distress. The cord around his neck would cause that.
My DS had his cord around his arm and was in distress. My first sign was miconium in my waters. I ended up having an emerg. c/s.

2 hrs
broke waters
3.3kg 51cm
2 wks early (pre-eclampsia)

Fingers crossed..

I was induced 2 days after my dd coz I had diabetes

Cervidil - not many people seem to have this I have found.I only ever hear of people having the gels. It is a small rectangular pouch with a retrieval string on it similiar to a tampon. It gets inserted in the vagina. - it induces you a lot nicer and slower. Was great!
