i was induced with my DD at 38wks due to pre eclampsia. i had the gel inserted at 9 am. the doc said i had a soft cervix so i might be surprised. my 1pm i started get backpain and mild contractions about 20mins apart. by 10pm i was in established labour and was 5cm dialated. and 2am i had by waters broke then some time between then and 620am i had oxytocin to speed up my contactions and it sure did. and at 640am i gave birth to my DD. i did have pain releif cant rmember what it was called they gave you a botten with it tho. the only thing that hurt was the contactions. ( sorry for anybad spelling).
