My water broke and they made me come to the hospital 12 hours later to get pitocin because things were not progressing by themselves and they were worried about infection. I wanted to do it without pain management, and I did it! But the pit was awful. When it hit, I was in constant pain without relief until he was out! It was much, much worse than I had anticipated, and the pushing was just as painful as the transition contractions. There was no rest between contractions, as I had heard others saying there would be. I hope next time to avoid an induction because I think the pit made things really much worse than they needed to be for me.
