Hope the cocktail works! Good luck, mama!

ditto! the only chance for infection is when you put a finger up there. gloved or not... you risk it. so the longer you stay home, the less likely you get infection and clocked for time to have a baby.
hope you stayed home till the contractions were good and hard!

I see your update. do nipple stimulation. that will work fast! it can be as strong as pitocin but its natural.
my water broke w my second baby and i didnt start labor for 18 hrs. then when it hit, it was 3 hrs

Re: How long after water breaks...

Just posted my birth story... but short end of it, the cocktail worked, I had ruptured membranes for 35 hours and a VERY patient Dr. The NICU however wasn't very happy for me because I wouldn't consent to blood cultures being done. Oh, well! I have a healthy baby boy!!!

Re: How long after water breaks...

Hasn't happened to me but should that happen this time I plan to go in pretty immediately (not rush off that second, but within 2-3 hours) should I be GBS+. Should I be GBS- then my CNM practice is fine staying home around 12 hours - they'll keep tabs during that time.
