When to go in for a second labor? JekkaLynn Due May 19; 17 kids; Ontario 282 posts

this is my second baby and they induced me with the gel at 10:30 and sent me home after an hour. Now the contractions are 55 seconds long and the contraction timer says the frequency is 2:11 minutes or so with an interval of 1:20

My second labor started with contractions 2 mins apart and only ended up being 4 hours long from first contraction to birth. So id say go now :)

So my hubby dragged me to the hospital where they checked me and finding that my cervix was just 2 cm, the same as when the gel was applied, tried to tell me that I wasn't in labor just reacting to the gel. They said I might as well stay for the next 2 hours since at 4 I needed to be checked and have more gel applied. I begged them to start my antibiotics and after an hour convinced them to do it. By 3:30 the 1st bag of antibiotics where in and I was 4 cm dilated. I got into the shower went through transition immediately came out at 8 cm at 3:55. Had them call my doctor who showed up 10 minutes later in time to break my water to force me to dilate the last 2 cm and to deliver my son. Remington Patrick was born at 4:16 pm less then 6 hours after the gel was applied. A bit over 2 hours after I was told I wasn't in labor.
