Look into hypnobabies or hypnobirthing.
I was induced at 39 weeks and thankfully never had any Pit.
I was induced with only Cervidil, which took 3 days. But looking back I'm glad I waited the extra couple days and did not go the Pit route. As once I hit active labour, it was fast and intense and I ended up not having enough time for an Epi (I broke down and asked).
Next time, I will try hypnobabies again. I got too anxious for it to work (cuz I got mega dizzy and that freaked me out).
I also have lupus, as well as Dermatomyositis and Fibromyalgia. I wonder if that has any bearing on the amount we feel the pain of childbirth.
Next time I also hope to avoid an induction all together (IUGR this time) and go for a home water birth.
Good luck to you!
