I have done all the reading I can and know that the risks of UR go up with induction. I will not allow any cervical gel to be used but am on the fence about pitocin (low dose). A good friend of mine has had 2 VBACs at the hospital I'll be giving birth at (and with the same practice) where they gave low dose pit, epidural, and both of her VBACs were quick and successful.
For my HBAC I was (obviously) with a MW and she let me go to 42+3 before stripping my membranes, which started my labor the next day. All was good.
This time I am VBACing in a hospital (long story as to why, don't wanna go into it here). My doc is letting me go to 42 weeks since I have a "proven pelvis" (yeah, I know). Anyway I tested GBS+ this time. The plan was to have my membranes stripped tomorrow if I hadn't yet gone into labor but now my doc (and honestly I am too) is on the fence about doing that b/c of my GBS status, even though I know the chance of transmitting it is extremely low. I am the type that just does not like to take chances.
So... if it comes down to it, how dangerous would it be to use low dose pit? Believe me, I do NOT want to!! But I want another section much less!! What would you do? Have any of you ever had a VBAC induced with pit?
I am 40+5 weeks today. Btw, maybe I should add that I have been feeling a little crampy this morning. I was also 1 cm and 50% effaced as of 1/24, my due date.
ETA: Just wanted to add too that my doula (who had been at my last birth, my HBAC) who had previously seemed so anti-induction for VBAC is now saying a low dose would not be a big deal... don't know what to believe!
