So I'm induced...any moms used cervidil before?

I am officially induced and now I sit and wait to produce a baby haha. The hospital sent me home and I"m supposed to call every 4 hours to update as well as go in around 6 tonight for a check on progress. So far I feel no different and I'm getting slightly frustrated. I did a little research on cervidil, which is what they gave me, and it mentioned the need to be constantly monitored in hospital. Should I be concerned that they sent me home? Has anyone else used this type of induction method? Ahhhh labor dust my way please ladies!

Re: So I'm induced...any moms used cervidil before?

  • That is the gel right?
  • Yep. Was it was inserted like a tampon? I know sometimes the cervidil alone will start labour, but it didn't happen that way for me.

    I had it inserted on a Tuesday afternoon and was sent home and told to come back early the next morning. I felt nothing, and when I was checked in the morning there was no progress, so I was sent home for another 12 hours. (It can stay in for 24 hours max.) Still felt nothing, and when I was checked that afternoon I was still only about a fingertip dilated. The doctor said I was "rupturable" and I was finally admitted so they could break my water and start pitocin.

    Good luck!

  • They did a half dose for me initially at 10 am and sent me home and then did the second dose at 6 pm.  By 9 pm my water broke on its own and by 2:30 am my DD was here.
