Being induced on Thanksgiving?

I'm scheduled for induction on Thanksgiving morning. I've gone into labor on my own during my 2 previous pregnancies but I'm being induced for medical reasons this time. If you've been induced - what steps do they take. I'm already 3-4 cm dilated - so I doubt they'll use cervidil but do they start right away or what happens??

    You can be induced simply by them breaking your water if you're already 3-4 cm. If you don't progress, they can give you IV pitocin to increase your contractions.

    With my second, I was 4 cm for 5 days- they broke my water and gave me pitocin and he was born in 4 hours! Good luck!
