    hi I was induced at 38+6 due to suspected IUGR. I didn't find it too bad - the contractions were quite intense and built up quickly but I coped with just gas and air - labour progressed too quickly for me to have pethidine (but this isn't always the case). There will be a long wait after they insert the first pessary so make sure you have enough to eat and drink (and have a wee) and change into whatever you want to give birth in before they insert the drip as I did none of these and ended up v hungry, desperate for loo and wearing a top that made me very hot :D

    I'm sure it'll be fine - plus at least you know when baby is coming so no worry about giving birth in the car! :D
