I'm getting induced on Tuesday, Jan 30th. We're starting with Cervidil and moving to Pitocin if need be. Anyone have any experience with Cervidil..Did it work, like at least help you dilate/efface more. I'm almost 1cm dilated, so I have a long way to go. Any info would be great!!!

I was induced about a year and a half ago when I was a month before my due date. It worked very well for me. I started on it about 6 pm and started having contractions and dialiation about 10 that night and then they gave me the pitocin about 3 am then had my little man 12:33 pm the next day. I think it took a little longer for me because while I was standing up rocking my contractions off around 2 am, the string with the cervidil on it fell out with a gush of blood (Normal by the way) sorry if tmi.

Were you dilated at all when you started it? because I'm barely dilated, that sort of scares me.

I was induced with cervidil for my dd. I was induced early bc of my blood pressure so i wasnt dialated or anything yet. I had no probs. Contractions started 2.5 hours after cervidil and still no dilation so pictocin started 4 hours later. In total 14 hours of labour. About average for 1st time. Good Luck

Oh, I read some stories where women were like 2-3cm and they started with cervidil and not pitocin. Good stories, I appreciate it.
