I've never had pitocin during labor, so I am clueless there. But I am also slightly worried even with this one being my third. My first labor was 8 hours but I had an epidural as soon as I could get it. The second one I chose a NCB and luckily my body complied. Of course labor was only 90 minutes and an absolute breeze. I'm nervous that #3 can't possibly be that easy. I am nervous about everything that could come up from going overdue (I think they wouldn't discuss induction until 41w) to my water breaking without contractions. Every labor is different and the fear of the unknown is normal. But we just have to try to focus on the end result.

Add me to the list of getting pitocin after both previous births. Mine is because I bleed a lot and they use it to get it stopped. They have always tried just pushing on my uterus first but it's never been enough to stop it.

My first delivery sounds very much like your experience (minus the fact that i'm NOT a rockstar like you and I did cave and get the epi after 14 hours, although apparently that saved me from a c-section). But my water had been broken for over 24 hours and still hardly any contractions and definitely not in labour. It was a tough decision but the pitocin was the only way to go.

Anyways i'm really scared this time. I chalk it up to the fact that i'm more educated now about everything than I was before. I had no idea what to really expect, I just went with the flow. Now I KNOW what can happen (bad or good) and I think THAT is what's scaring me the most. But I think i'm on the flip side of the fence. I think I would prefer to be induced again because it's familiar to me. I know what the process is. Going into labour on my own is terrifying because it's unknown territory.

I hope that you get the delivery you want and that your little man decides to come on his own....but even if that doesn't happen, i'm sure you will do the best you can with any situation that arises
