I am 41 weeks pregnant and my doctor chose to induce me tomorrow. I'm assuming they will use an IV drip of pitocin to do that. Do you know any side effects that people can have with pitocin? Vomiting, Diarrhea etc.? Does it make labor longer? Are the contractions more intense than a natural labor? This is my first baby so am new at this.
