Talking about possible induction with a midwife yesterday, she said they induce most often with cytotec, but sometimes they will use the prostaglandin gel which I'm assuming is cervadil. I've read bad things about cytotec and it's not fda approved for induction purposes. I'm not sure that I'm comfortable using it. Any experiences? Did anyone use cervadil only? Tell me how dilated/effaced you were and how things progressed if you don't mind.

I was induced with my first at 39 weeks 0cm and 80% effaced. They used a foley balloon and it took 3 days to get dd out.

This time I'm 1cm and 50% at 40 weeks
