  • my SIL's doctor told her 24-48 hours. I think she went into labor, about 36 hours later

  • Could be days, could be weeks. There is no guarentee that it will actually work at all. Many women have it done multiple times anywhere from 48 to several days apart and it never works for them.

  • for me, that day, for my sister, 8 days later! With my 4 all of them I went into labor within hours, but that is not for everyone!

  • No... for me. I am supposed to be having a c section. But it wasnt my regular doc who did it. He did it cause if I go into labor they HAVE to do the section earlier... and I am retaining so much fluid and my reg doc wont do anything
