I am currently 41 weeks and 2 days. I went in the other night for induction and after 12 hours on cervadril to soften my cervix I had gone from 1 cm and 30 % effaced and he said my cervix was hard to 2 cm and 50 % effaced and my cervix was soft. The Dr knew that I really wanted a natural birth and since I had some progression and the baby wasn't in distress he let me go home. We have a NST on Thursday and if she is showing any stress then he will break my water and start pitocin but if not he will let us wait till the 31st. My question is does anyone know anything that will help me at this point? I have tried all natural labor induction like walking, red raspberry tea, etc. The only thing I haven't tried is castor oil because I have heard it can go either way and at this point if she does have meconim staining it could be because she is overdue. I am really trying to not end in a c-section because I don't want any drugs with this birth but I feel like I have exhausted all options.
