At my appointment today, my OB scheduled me for "low-dose" Pitocin induction next Friday....but he said he had to check me on Tuesday (I am doing twice-weekly NSTs for GD) to make sure the cervix was favorable. I didn't think to ask then, but now am wondering: what is the minimum dilation required for a Pitocin induction? I have been 1cm and 50% the last 2 times he checked. Does anyone have any input/advice on this?

My OB wanted to induce me with my daughter who was my first baby even though I wasn't dilated at all. He didnt seem to think I needed to be dilated to get pitocin. I don't know if its different for vbacs though. Sorry I'm no help lol.
