Positive induction stories


I’m scheduled to be induced 7/24 if I don’t go into labor on my own before then. Now that it’s 10 days away, I’m getting more anxious about it being a reality and all of my friends who have been induced only have shared horror stories. Anyone been induced and not had a terrible experience? I’m aware of all the risks and that people can have more intense labor but hoping someone can offer some more reassurance. For what it’s worth, I’ll be 40 weeks on 7/24, but wasn’t dilated last week at 38+1. FTM and just feeling nervous that induction can only end in disaster 😣
