Well, today did not go as planned. We went in to be induced at 6am and they started the pitosin at about 6:30am. My contractions started right up and got going pretty good every 30 seconds to 1 minute. However, I would not dialate more than 1.5cm. They said that they could not break my water until I was a 2 or a 3. So, at 5pm they sent us home. They said that they gave me the highest dose of pit that they could and most women would be screaming in pain, but I just wouldn't dilate. They were going to give me a pill that was supposed to soften me up, but it meant I would just have to be monitored for another 8 hours or so with the chance of nothing happening, so we decided to go home in the hopes that something would happen overnight. I go back to the doctor on Friday morning and my doctor and I will make another plan . Hopefully it will be that they will admit me on Friday night with the pill to soften me and then induce me again Saturday morning. John and I are pretty dissapointed, but there is not much else we can do at this point but wait. I felt like I was doing the walk of shame when we left the hospital...I am also very sad becuase my mom came into town today and has to leave next Wednesday, so she may not be able to be here very long if the baby doesn't make her entrance until this weekend. At least she will be back in a couple weeks right after Christmas...I will update more as soon as something starts going!

Karina I am so sorry! I can't believe that. I thought that they were always suppose to give you that pill before they start pitosin? But what do I know? That must have been horribly disappointing for you all. Enjoy time with your mom. Good Luck!

So so sorry! My parents got to see Ashlyn one day in the hospital and one day at home and then had to wait tell her baby blessing to come back so I hope your mom gets to spend more time with the baby. Good Luck with everything and I am sure something will work out. Love ya bunches

Good luck. At least it was better you were prepared for something to happen instead of not eating all day and going in for diagnostics. Then to tell them they are going to admit you and have your husband leave to take his final. Anyways, the baby will come when it wants. It just means it's stubborn. lT was the same way and he is so stubborn. Keep us up to date.

I heard about it from Tamar. That totally sucks. I felt so bad for you that I didn't even want to say anything! At least you know you'll have a stubborn one on your hands. I'm glad your mom gets to come up later, though. Good luck this weekend!
