Induce labour

Hi mummies, just wanted to ask if any of you have any experience with induce labour? My doc planning to induce me at 38 weeks due to my GDM. So I was wondering if anyone can prep me and share with me the process of inducing labour and if its more painful than natural birth hehehe thank you! #firstbaby #pleasehelp

Inducing is just a drip through your IV to help you dilate faster. Induced labour has been said to be more painful than natural birth though. Baby must be pretty big already?

last they checked baby is average weight.. but the reason they wanted to induce is because I'm taking insulin for the GDM.. so they don't want to prolong my usage of it and wait till EDD..
