It sounds like induction is a good idea with the medical issues. Is the baby's head down low enough to go ahead and strip your membranes or ARM instead of starting with PIT? I say this because using PIT with a VBAC or after uterine surgery is more risky than other methods of induction. Good luck, OP!

-2 station, membranes stripped yesterday! I won't consent for AROM because I'll be put on the clock whereas a low dose PIT will allow me to labor as long as I need.

Thank you!! I'm supposed to be there at 6am and will probably be getting started around 7/7:30. I'm going to post a thread here in Sept DDC as an official update thread. Being online helps get my mind off things, so I'm sure I'll be on alot!
