Water broke about 22 hours ago and nothing

My water broke last night at 630, got to L&D around 830, they gave me oxytocin to move things along because I had not made any head way on my own.. Well I was on that from 1130 pm till noon today, maxed out the dose and still nothing.. So now they gave me some pill to finish effacing my cervix and hopefully get things moving. I'm exhausted and so ready to give birth... Ugh!

You don't have to intervene & force it, that is one route.    Some of us stay home (and leak! for days/weeks!).   If you want to make things easier you can ask about your options and reconsider.    It helps & can make things so much nicer~      
But if you continue inducing then your baby will certainly be here soon.

GL!

Staying home while leaking isn't the same as staying home after it breaks. The body can replenish leaks, but when it breaks the body can't replenish and you risk exposing the baby to infection and germs without the fluid. Going home would not be a good idea. 

But OP--best wishes!!! Do they have Pitocin instead of the Oxytocin? I hope something gets your body going soon *fingers crossed*!!!

If you keep peoples fingers out of your vagina, there is very little risk of germs being introduced. Your body can still replenish. It will just keep leaking.

With my 4th, my water broke. Like POP and shot to my knees like a water cannon while sleeping in bed. It resealed (or something) a few hours later. My midwife ended up breaking it again. She mentioned how it only broke on top. It was weird. LOL
