Re: Cytotec induction?

Sounds like you may have a baby before Monday, but if you don't, I wouldn't consent to cytotec, either, for all the reasons already mentioned. I'd ask to have my membranes sweeped/stripped, and if that doesn't start labor, a foley balloon/catheter, with pitocin if needed afterward. There is a risk they could break your water with a sweep, but I wouldn't allow them to rupture my membranes to get things moving, as it puts you on the clock and you're committed to having a baby, not to mention that ctx without intact membranes are much harder on both of you.
