Quoting Jennybananna:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Lin Brown:</b>" they tried doing that with my SIL here, her ... [snip!] ... at 4cm with no contractions? Do they just induce you? I was 4cm for like two weeks no way would I of been induced at 37 weeks."
they offer it, but you don't have to take it. My water started leaking almost the second I lost my plug, they started me on the pitocin at 7cm because I wasn't progressing after that and once I got to a 9 and just stopped dilating and my cervix was starting to get swollen so they gave me the option to up the dosage on the pitocin and see what happens or to do a emergency c-section, the dr highly recommended the c-section because my daughter was already stessing, had pooped and the cord was wrapped around her neck. I was in labor for 10 hours and went under the knife. I didn't know they gave you an option to have a vaginal birth after you have had a c-section before.
