Four hours after I took Misoprostol, the doctor suggested that we add Pitocin to my IV drip. My cervix had dilated to 2.5 centimeters with the help of the Miso, and Pitocin would likely continue that process. [...] She made this suggestion at 2:00 am. My partner, A, asked her if we could start the Pitocin in the morning, after more sleep and some breakfast. “Sure,” she replied, casually. And with that, he earned me 4 hours of sleep and a big plate of eggs, bacon and toast to fuel my labor.
