My brother's girlfriend is 41w1d with her 1st baby and has decided on a dose of pit to get things rolling. She is 1.5 cm and no effacement and her midwife is worried (I don't know why, that's within the range of normal ). Both mom and baby's vitals are great.

They are going to the birth center at 1am (why not wait til morning??) to get a "small dose". I am really hoping all her body needs is a nudge and will keep things going on its own after that. I am praying hers is one of those easy pitocin stories and not the more common hellish ones. Please keep her in your thoughts and send as many labor vibes as you can.

Not that I'm agreeing, but there have been some reports that pitocin is more effective in the early hours of the day than later in evening or at night. Nothing like a full nights sleep to help you start an induced labor though!

I wondered about that. I figured there must be some reason for not letting her start labor after a full night's sleep.

I just found out she had a prenatal today and they sent her home to sleep and eat well before coming in tonight.

She was 2 cm an hr ago and they broke her water because she chose that over more pit. She was having contrax but she could barely feel them.


More labor vibes needed please!

: for her!

I wonder what the hurry was? I hope everything progresses smoothly.
