Im getting induced on the 13th, as long as the amnio comes back that the babys lungs are developed. There sapposed to bring me back that night to insert some sort of gel to thin my cervix, keep me for an hour, and if nothing happens there gonna send me home until the morning of the 14th (V-Day, WooHoo!) to finish the induction. My ? is, does this gel really work, because ive heard it doesnt do c__p lol. Any other women have this done, and did it work for you?

It really depends on the woman....some inductions just don't work for some.... I was induced with pitocin and never had the gel inserted...My sister on the other had just had the gel inserted and went into labor and didn't need the pitocin......so, every situation is different.

I never had the gel, just pitocin right away and they broke my waters half an hour later. My induction was kind if an "emerency induction" though, so they probably didn't have time to so the gel thing and have it fail. I was induced at 37 weeks.

I agree w/ Tammy... depends on the person. It didn't work for me. Even the lower amounts of Pitocin didn't do anything for me. But they upped the amount....WHOA... it def. started ctxns!
