If your cervix is unfavorable, I'd request to start with Cervadil to help ready it. Starting with Pitocin will just make your labor longer and harder.
No my cervix IS favorable so they would not give me Cervadil, they would just go right to oxytocin because the cervix is ready.

I have my first dose of labour cocktail at 8:30 this morning and if nothing happens then stress test at hospital at 1:00pm then home for a second dose of cocktail... The cramps and bathroom trips are in full swing-my babies just don't want to leave I tell you!

on the other side of things. induced labor isn't always a horribly bad thing. i was induced with my son, first baby, because i had zero cervical changes going on. they gave me cervidil for 12 hrs the night before and that didn't do anything either. i was on pit for 1 hour and didn't need anymore than that. they started the pit at 4am and stopped it at 5 am. my water broke at 6:30 and i had my son at 12:57 pm after pushing for just 30 mins. i got my epidural when i was 1.5 cm and i didn't tear at all. i had one stitch but the doc said he was doing it to cover his own self, lol.
We must measure fluids on a different scale than you do because I have a super granola midwife and I know if she says I need to do something I need to do it beause she is all about no interventions unless really needed.

Ohhh ok. I misunderstood your previous post. Hope the cocktails work! They worked for me with DS.
