Be calm! I was induced and my labor was not bad at all. I think people try to scare you into believing something horrible is going to happen so when it doesn't you don't think what you went through was that horrible. I went in at 9am and had very mild contractions. When they broke my water in the afternoon the contration were a bit worse, but I had an epidural and only felt maybe 2 bad contractions. My son was born at 6:20pm after 2 hours of pushing (which I don't even remember and I didn't feel). Congratulations! I am sure you will do great. :o)
