The pitocin was horrible and I had back labor. I would not recommend it unless you have to for medical reasons. It's much easier to labor without the medicine making contractions stronger. My Dr also said that they try not to induce with the first so they know that you will dilate.
Omg yes my son in school now so i have to wake up early take him to school den try to go back to sleep til he get out n i cant so im up all day til he ready to go to sleep
Sex is a really good way to induce labor. Sperm/Semen has prostaglandins which will help to ripen your cervix. An orgasm will release oxytocin, the body's natural form of pitocin (medicine used to induce labor), which can help you have contractions. Walking also helps, but I have known may women who were able to jumpstart labor with intercourse. Good Luck!
Went to Re and was given Misoprostol to take vaginally. I took it this morning at 6am and still nothing. I am to repeat the dose in 24 hours if nothing happens. I don't feeling anything. I am trying to avoid having to havs a D&C. After my last MC I had a D&C and that's when my lining became an issue. I just need this to work.

there is no reason to induce unless there's a medical reason. induced labor is unnatural. I've been through natural and induced. not even on the same scale. just my opinion. but at the end of it all it's up to you and what you feel is best for you and your baby. best of luck to you and your baby.
While yes babies can and do survive before 36 weeks quite frequently, you do not want to try to induce early labor unless your doctor has indicated a medical need to. You need to be at least 36 weeks before most doctors will allow you to continue delivery; in other words, most doctors will give you medicine to stop contractions even if you manage to start them this early.
The medicine they give you to induce you makes your contractions stronger. Most women them opt to get an epidural because the pain is so intense. Most women cant respond to their body when they have an epidural because of the numbness and then probably have to have a c section. Doctor gets a nice check from your insurance because operations pay more than natural labor. Thats why doctors push it and most women are so uncomfortable and ready to meet there lil one they fall for the bait.
They started me on cervidil 2 days before 39w and my son arrived when I was 38+6. It was almost heartbreaking to hear they wanted to induce me. I wanted to experience my water breaking on it's own and my son pick his birthday. I knew it had to be done and, in the end, it was the best decisions. My son weighed 8 pounds and 15 ounces at birth. Could you imagine how big he would have been in another week?! I probably would have had to have a c-section.
Hey i did pressure points its a natural way to induce labor at home its pretty easy and doctor approved . Basically u put 4 fingers above ur ankle bone thats were the pressure point of ur cervix is .. Then u press there inside and out of both legs count to 30 and release .. U can goigle it its called " pressure point to induce labor " it got my contractions started in 15 min.
I went in for a Dr appt at 40+1 with my first, was dilated to 4. After having contractions for about a week. The Dr decided to induce me. I had to wait til 6 to get the epidural. After the epidural all was smooth sailing!! 10 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing!! All of the pain is so beyond worth it when you are holding your babe in your arms!! They say you forget the pain, not true!! Lol!! But the prize in the end some how gets you through it!
I've been reading a lot on labor and delivery. And I want to prepare myself (and be really strong) to have a natural, normal birth with minimal interventions. I don't want to be induced, I don't want my bag of waters broken until it goes on its own or until the last minute. And i want to avoid pain medications unless I really can't stand it. And if I get pain medication, I want a walking epidural that way I can still move around and feel myself push somewhat.
well my mom leaves on sunday, which is the day the doctor has time to induce me, but my little girls due date is on thursday(tomorrow) so i really want my mom to be here for the birth..... i know its been asked a million times before, but ill ask again... what are some ways to get this labor moving along? im 3 cm dilated baby is headown, but also im restricted from sex and have to put my feet up every two hours or so to keep down swelling and blood pressure... any tips? no castor oil though...
i was really looking forward to having a natural labor but if I have to be induced than so be it..I still want to avoid getting the epidural as much as possible. This is my second baby and I didn't have to be induced with the first Have anyone had an induced labor without an epidural...
Need a like button. Completely agree with this post.
Having diarrhea can brring on contractions (that's why taking Castor Oil often works to induce labor), but it sounds like yours were probably just stomach cramps or Braxton Hicks. BTW I have similar bad experiences with iron pills, but for me, it was vomiting. Have you been feeling those yet? Like pookie described, BH contractions will make your belly feel hard and tight. They are not really painful but may be uncomfortable.
HI HTERE! MY DOCTOR WILL INDUCE ME IN 10 DAYS. tHE MEDICINE HE IS USING IS CALLED PITOCIN. I NEED OPINION PLS IF SOME OF YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH THE SAME THING. IS IT PAINFUL?
Shortly after that I told my nurse I had this extreme urge to push so she checked me one more time and said you're at a ten time to push. Needless to say after avoiding a c section and 24 hours of labor. I had my baby girl 7-24-14 at 159 AM . Weighing 7 pounds and 4 ounces and was 21.5 inches long. I had a minor minor tear not even considered 1st degree. Me and my boyfriend cried so much when she came out and we heard her cry. I'm so happy to meet my baby girl.
I read an article on another preggo app and it wouldnt allow me to copy and paste so I will summarize because I feel that alot of women on this app need this info. It basically states that the way modern medicine operates it makes women lose faith in their bodies to do what its suppose to do naturally. Doctors do cervical checks on women at their appts that have brought up symptoms of being in labor.
There are methods of inducing labor that don't require medicine. See if they're willing to break your water 1st. A lot of time that is enough to get things moving.
Its more intense than nomal labor but epidural. No food or water but you have an Iv. Your on monitor all the time so no bathroom trips got to use a bed pan.
I had to go in a few weeks ago with pre term labor and that had to give me medicine to calm my contractions down. It was called brethine or something like that. They said if it happens again they are going to go ahead and induce me bc the baby is really healthy and weighs a good bit so she told me they were going to check on it again friday at my next appointment j mean I been doing really good until last night I started having the contractions again so I hope I can hold the baby in longer.
I agree with Joy. I would wait and see if your body dispells everything naturally as that route will have the lowest chance of any adverse affects on your body. I've never taken any medication to induce and m/c but I have had a d & c and a natural miscarriage....the natural we def. the easiest, not the least painful...but took less time and my body got back to normal much quicker.
They finally stopped the pitocin before I ended up needing an emergency c-section and then my labor finally picked up. With this one my doctor wants to induce me but only because of complications I have been having and she believes it's best for me and baby to not go to DD and we both hope I will go naturally before she induces me. I would research being induced because it carries a lot of risks. I ddefinitely wouldn't recommend it unless there is an absolute need for it.
