So I haven't progressed in 3 weeks - still nearly fully effaced, 1cm dilated, but cervix is 'back there'. The plan per my doc is for Cytotech on Monday night, and then if needed induction (Pitosin?) on Tuesday morning. I'll be 41w 5d on Tuesday. If anyone's been induced with this combo - curious to hear how it went?

CRAZY thinking there's an end date in sight. Had imagined that 'start having contractions and call Hubby' experience but as long as the baby's healthy (and hopefully I don't need to have a c-section..).

Should be our last weekend with just DH and me!

Good luck! With my 1st I had a pitocin induced birth.. and other than it going REALLY fast and being very painful, no complications whatsoever.

I'll be crossing my fingers that you go into labor on your own before then!

Good luck!!!!

I have never had the cytotek.... I have gone in with my 6th baby after my water broke and was only dialated to 1cm.... they did pit, it was a long process at first cuz it took awhile for labor to kick in. same with this last time. I was only 2cms, but VERY thick and baby was VERY high. But once labor got going with the help of pit. it was about 2 hours. one push.

i was induced yesterday at 1cm 40-50% thinned. They didn't use anything but pitocin and it was completely tolerable for me until they broke my water and they I had an epidural and things were perfect after that. I was on pitocin from 10:30 until about 6:30 (at which point I had only progressed to 2cm) and then the dr. broke my water and I instantly went to a 4...3 hours later the baby was born.
