i should add when we started, 1 week after my EDD (on a friday) i was not dilated/effaced at all. it took another 5 days on pitocin before DS was born late wednesday night. i don't recommend induction when your body isn't starting to show signs of readiness
Sounds like my birth experience!!! except for the urge to push that I did not get with it.
And they put it twice! I should have said no the first time, and I should have said no the 2nd time!
Those contractions were hell and they did almost nothing in term of ripening.
The contrax after AROM were actually a piece of cake compared to the cervadil ones.
I still feel that I missed something because we did not let labour start on its own.
I promised myself: never another induction, unless there is a really really good
medical reason too.
