I hope to tell ya in about 5 months!
I was induced with my first - bullied into Pit. Had read all there is to read and was sad I had agreed to it, but went to the hospital that morning anyways.
I was 100% and 2-3 cms dilated for a week+, and when I got to the hospital I was 100% and 4 cms. - having never felt anything, not even a twinge. Doc started me on what she called a "test dose" of Pit to make sure the baby and I could handle it.
Conractions were immediate, strong, intense and with no breaks in between. 45 minutes later the nurse went and *woke up* my OB (grrrr...) to come check me - since she had asked if I wanted an epidural and I said "No, but if it's going to be hours and hours more like this, I'm going to need something or I'm going to die." Nurse said "That sounds like transition, hang on and let me wake up your doc."
Sure enough, I had gone from 4 cms without feeling a thing to 10 cms in 45 minutes. Yep. A whopping 45 minutes. My body had no time to build up the intensity of contracions, to get used to it before the next, more intense contrax started, etc.
It was a short L&D, just under 2 hours from nothing to baby. But it was hell, and I'll never consent to Pit again, except maybe in the case of a previous poster with a stuck posterior baby, waning contrax., etc., where it actually seems to have made sense and been helpful.
Oh, and also, telling your mom something like "I love you, but I am not going to talk to you about this anymore" is a really great phrase to have on hand for anything you don't want to hear her opinions on.
