Birth stories please! I am being induced and terrified!!
I’m booked in to be induced next weekend on my due date. I’ll be 40 weeks.
I am absolutely terrified of giving birth as it is but now even more so now I’m being induced as everyone tells me how it hurts more, takes longer and is much more intense.
Before anyone says you don’t have to be induced. I know I don’t but I am as it’s safer for us both. It’s medical reason.
I am absolutely terrified. To the point where I cry when I think about it and I’m losing sleep over it. I’m driving myself mad.
I’m rubbish with pain, I have 0 tolerance what so ever. I know I can have a epidural but that’s not until I’m 5cm.
I am currently 1cm dilated and he’s not fully engaged yet. My cervix is still high and thick if that’s any difference.
Am I being stupid or is it really that bad??
