Cytotec part II

My doula friend Terri had a client induced Monday night with cytotec. The woman had preeclampsia. She delivered her baby at 5:30 this morning with no complications. It was not until the sixth and final dose of cytotec that labor began in earnest -- and then it was apparently quiet immediate and intense. Contractions were right on top of each other. This after 24 hours' exposure to the medication with no signs or symptoms that it was doing anything.

Therein lies the wild card with cytotec. You never know which dose is going to do anything. And since it can't be taken back once administered, it is hard to control the frequency or intensity of contractions.

Thankfully all is well with Terri's client and her baby.

Your blog popped up in google again! lol I just had to comment, I was induced at 42 weeks with cytotec and had a very similar experience... nothing and after 4 doses VERY STRONG UNCONTROLLABLE labor pains... thank god for one particular nurse who stayed with me during the worst, it was a nightmare.
