It is because I am trying for a VBAC. They usually won't induce at all for VBAC's because it puts too much pressure on the old scar, but in some cases where there is progress, as a final effort to avoid a CS, they will attempt one. They start with AROM because pit puts strain on the scar and can sometimes offer a reduced dose of drugs later, but they try to avoid it (again because of pressure on scars). If it doesn't they also have to limit time in labor and will have already broken water, so once it starts, they have to deliver her one way or another, so I will definitely be having Cora this weekend at the latest.
