I was never that dilated needle labor! My cervix was a hundred percent thinned for about a week but I got stuck at a two until they started me on pitocen.

My water broke and they started pitocen when my contractions didn't start. But mutt labor continued when the pit was turned off. I wish I'd gone naturally! But my body had other plans.
