So I'm due on Jan. 6th.. but my husband and I have 3ish goal dates that we are hoping for... either somewhere between the 29th and 30th or the first on the first lol you know first new years baby .. or jan 7th..
but my doctor said that if my cervix isn't favorable then they can start with a gel or something to put on my cervix to start the softening and i know it helps some women get kick started into labor.. but I wanted to know how fast it would work or how fast it has worked for someone or people you know or any advice...
I've put this in answers before but this is a good clue as to how induction works. You need to have a favorable bishop's score http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/pregnancy-articles/173.html if you have one the chance your induction will work is really good and labor should come fast and be successful. If your bishop's score is unfavorable they could try to use the various methods for induction but they could fail. Example I had been at 3cm and 80% soft for 3 week with fifth pregnancy. Another mom was on the same induction schedule with first baby and wasn't as far dilated and soft as me but we were due same day. I progressed and had my baby that night she went home the same time I did me with baby her with out. I ran into her a year later she had to go back a week after and had hers at that time.
