if you need to be induced for REAL medical reasons... they should probably be monitoring you during said induction

With my son I was due December 8 and went into labor November 27 then had him in the middle of the night. The weekend before I spent a lot of time walking and shopping for Black Friday so that by my appointment the day before I had him I was almost 3 cm.

Nothing. You can do nothing. Clearly baby isn't ready yet. Looks like you'll just have to be patient.

I always suggest starting evening prime rose oil at 37 weeks because it will help soften the cervix and when your body is ready it will help speed up the process.
evening prime rose oil will make your cervix soft and mushy.

I'm just saying.. if you're high risk... you shouldn't be causing stress on your body while you are not on the monitor.

Pitocin causes tons of stress on both mother and babys body. Also, how do you know your body is ready unless you try. OP, I'm not judging. I naturally induced early to avoid medical induction.

pitocin causes stress yes... but she'd be constantly monitored. I'm just saying.. if it's for medical reason.. she should probably be monitored while induced.

Depends on the reason. Like I said I'm not judging, I don't know her circumstances. Castor oil has no risks that have been concluded. Only assumes and researched. But no conclusive data. Pitocin on the other hand has plenty of documented complications that would requirw monitoring. I'm simply letting OP know what worked for me.
