I have been at 4cm and they broke my water, in hopes of starting labor. It has worked 5 out of 5 times. I need to be induced for a medical condition. My babes were born anywhere from 4-7 hours later, with no Pitocin or any other drugs. The labor was a little tougher, because that cushion is gone, but it's doable. My doctor and I had planned on using Pitocin after about 6 hours or so if there was no change in dialation, but by than most of them had been born or I was pushing .

I'm not sure what condition you are dealing with, but gaining 6 lbs in a few days sounds worrisome. Is your blood pressure under control? Only asking out of concern, not trying to force you into an induction
