Well... my due date was New Years Eve and this little guys still isn't out... so I am going to be induced on Tues Jan 8 FINALLY! Anyways, they are going to use cytotec to induce this time, where as my last pregnancy I was induced with Pitocin. Just curious if there is any comparison as far as pain etc.

I could be wrong, but I believe the reason that they are starting out with cytotec is because you are not dialated. Once they get you dialated.. they may go on to use pitocin. Good luck, and who knows.. maybe hell decide to come out and meet the world today or tomorrow??? Good luck. ~Kristin~

Actually, I'm already dialated to 4 1/2 cm. and 75% effaced. My doc said that he's just using the cytotec until my cervix is "all the way ripened". Then he said he'll break my water and it should go on it's own from there. Sooo I just didn't know if cytotec will give me severe contractions like the pitocin does. but thanks!!!

I had cervidil and had contrax almost immediately...and they were very painful....be prepared...
