If you're a 6, you may just dilate on your own tonight and won't even need to be induced.

sounds like your body is doing it's own thing. i personally wouldn't get induced just yet but there's nothing wrong with it. you'll probably only need a small dose of pitocin if any.
or are they just going to break your water and see if your contractions come on their own?

She said I would get pitocin and then if my water dont break from that they would break it

Expect your contractions to be very painful. :/ Epidural is heaven.. :)

My waters dont break on there own. Both pregnancies they had to be broken to help labour progress. I get worse pain and contractions but no action. Fingers crossed for you :) You could say no and wait it out and see if it happens on its own :)
