From the time my cervidil was placed til I had her, it was 15 hours. I was 2 cm when I got there. My water broke 3-4 hours after I went in to be induced.

With my first, my water broke at 4:30pm, I had her at 11:26pm that night. Only had painful contractions for about the last 2 hours though.
My 2nd I went to the doctor and had developed pre-eclampsia....they were going to make me get induced which I was strongly against, but my water broke there lol, my water broke at 12:42pm, she was born at 3:08pm...super quick! I'm kind of afraid my next one will come before I make it to the hospital lol.
