i was induced on the 13 1pm, gave birth on 14 11:11am. 2cm dilated when they induced. waited until 6pm for it to be only 3cm dilated. pushed to delivery suite at 6.30 and used epidural by 730. 430am waterbag burst was already 5cm dilated. from 430am to 630am i am 8cm dilated. only fully dilated at 936am and started pushing for 1hour plus. Hahaha! they told me baby weight is 3.8kg(roughly) almost asked me to czer and keep on pestering for czer. but i rejected and told them off. turn out my baby weight is only 2.99kg. afterall induce experience depends on how your body react. when they induced me, i walk around the hospital until i felt contractions then i went up to the ward. oh, dont forget to eat before u induced or when you are at the ward. bcos when youre in delivery suite youre not allowed to eat only allowed to drink sips of plain water. anyway have a smooth delivery. all the best and dont stress up. 🥰
