Induction process.... Experience please


I've been admitted today at 40+12 and had examination and not dilated at all and cervix quite far back. I'm disheartened cause this is my second induction and thought things would move quicker. I've had a pessary inserted at lasts 24 hours and now need to wait 24 hours to get examined again. Then she said it will be either a gel or pessary again lasting another 6 hours. I'm praying I might not need that in 6 hours. Did this happen to anyone?
