I was just wondering if anyone has been induced this way and how it went? Also what is the difference between cervidil and prostine? What are the risks?
I'm 40+3 today and just had an apt with the OB. Being an ivf pregnancy they don't want me to go too far over. This is my 2nd bub. First one my waters broke before contractions started at 39+5 and 12 hours later they induced me with syntocin drip. Ended up with Epidural and vacuum delivery and episiotomy. Want to avoid all that this time that's for sure!!
This is the plan of action - going for a scan later today to check on bubs and placenta etc. All going well then on Thursday afternoon I need to come into maternity ward and they are going to insert some gel to try and ripen my cervix and get it ready for labour - I'll have to stay in overnight and they'll put in two lots of gel over that time (he said start with the lower dose first). Fingers crossed it kicks things off. It can either go a few ways....1. Nothing happens and I'll have to come back in a couple more days and try again or 2. I just go into labour normally or 3. It starts things off but then they will need to break waters for me and hook me up to syntocin drip
