It's like I needed a kickstart not just for contractions but for the dilation, kwim?

I agree!! You can do this. I would request nst's!!
I had the foley balloon thing on my first pregnancy induction so I asked if i could try a different way to induce this time (overnight) and they said yes, cervadil. Now you have me wondering if I should stick with the balloon. Congrats on your vbac.

thank u quantum leap for my siggy

I had bOth cervadil and the balloon...maybe this time doing both (if needed) might do the trick? I don't know. But good luck to you and keep visualizing the birth you want!

Good luck. I wonder if they are wanting to induce sooner, because with inductin after a previous c-section I think the risks are higher ? ( I could be WAY wrong thouhg) But yeah for them not rulling out a vaginal delivery after a C section any how.

Thinking of you!~

Just a thought, but have they tried stripping your membranes? I probably don't know what I'm talking about, but my sil was 40wks and that's what they did and it started labor for her.

I've been induced with every single one of my kids. Induction isn't bad (I've had cervidel and cytotec), it was the pit that was bad. With Natalie, they never did pit.

I hope something starts soon for you.

I think you have to be somewhat dialated before you can do the stretch and sweep, but I agree, if you are dialated try that! I did it and it worked!
