Cervadil did nothing for me in 2 inductions. Maybe made me a bit softer but NO change in dilation. However I do respond to pitocin and having my water broken. When I've gone in on a Friday night for ex, I'll have my babies Sat evening. GL! Hope you meet your baby soon!

My induction took 51.5 hours, 22.5 of which were active labor (it took Pitocin, which I didn't get until the 25 hour mark, before my water finally broke - 4 hours after it started. Cervidil and Cytotec were useless to me). I was induced for medical reasons, but my body just didn't respond to anything. After 51.5 hours, I was at a 5 and they let me help make the call. I went with a c-section and got it over with; I was so exhausted. I don't regret it one bit. You'll get through it and that baby is so worth it! My son had a cone head still because he was trying so hard to come down naturally, but my cervix just wasn't having it.

I've not really been induced yet. But this might make you laugh. It did me, anyway. Have you seen Pitch Perfect? Upon first glance I thought your SN was acamom (aca-mom) and it reminded me of all the aca-words.

Aca-cuse me?
Aca-awkward ...
Aca-believe it!

I've never had cervadil. My induction was Pitocin only and I was already 3cm when they started it (I had PIH as well). Things really got started after they broke my water. My labor was about 8.5 hours but that included 3 hours of pushing.

Good luck! Hope you turn a corner soon.

Good luck girl. I know it sucks but it sounds like your body's just not ready. Hopefully things begin to pick up.

Sounds like baby is not ready to come. Why are you being induced?
