I went in to get cervidil gel and was supposed to come in the next morning for my induction (waters broken,pitocin) but the cervidil ended up putting me in labour. we went out to eat after i got the gel and I started having terrible back pain, and had to go to the bathroom a I got home and took a bath and i felt better. I went to have a nap and woke up a couple hrs later having contractions 5 mins apart.hey admitted me at the hospital and I had my baby 13 hrs later via cesarean section.

I will be 39 weeks tomarrow and i still haven't dialated, my cervix has opened to where my Dr. was able to put his pinkie in, but that's all. My husband is in the militrary and should be leaving in 4 days, what can i do to have my child before he leaves? can i take anything or drink anything or simply just go and get induced?

I woke up in the morning on my husbands birthday, and went to make his luch for him. I was standing there in the kitchen when all the sudden I thought I had peed on myself. No, my water had broke. I went into the hospital at 8:00am and the baby was born @ 3:00pm. It was great. I hope this one goes as smoothly :).

Your doctor has to agree to induce you and scheduele the induction.

With my son I was 35 weeks pregnant when my waters broke while I was sleeping. It was 1.30am. I went straight to the hospital and started getting contractions an hour later. He was born at 4.08pm weighing 4lb 15oz.


Mommy2Kylie - January 22

My water broke at 8:30pm November 5th 2004, at 8:50 I had my first contraction which took over my whole body, I couldn't stand up straight or even walk, five minutes after that I had another one, and from there on out they started getting closer and closer, I got to the hospital at a little after 10:00pm and had my daughter Kylie at 10:50pm, she was 6lbs 9oz and 20 inches long. So all together my labor was about 2 hours. :)
