  • It is a tiny tampon like object they insert in your vagina. This helps thin you out and make you dialate. Unfortuneatly your not aloud to move for the first two hours of having it in. and if I remember correctly your not allowed to eat anything for 12 hrs. but it's been two years since I had it so I would look it up online or ask your doctor.

  • I had that with my third pregnancy. It was no big deal. Far less annoying than having your water broken. Unfortunately, no one told me how fast everything was going to happen. Apparently after you have had a few babies the cervidil works pretty quickly. Get plenty of rest before hand.

    It felt just like when I went into labor naturally.
