  • Hoping you don't need it, with being 4 cm dilated it seems like you could have your lil one any day. Do as much walking as you can and don't forget to drink lots of water to keep hydrated

  • No labor will not go any faster. Ask them for an enema first and see if the induction is still needed. Expect an IV of medication and a baby. That's about it. Though you should also know inductions can fail.
