I'm scheduled to start an induction Monday night. Of course I'm hoping and praying that I go into labor naturally before-hand, but I'm also trying to mentally prepare myself for an induction as well. It's just my personality that I like to plan ahead and know what to expect!
My doctor told me I'd go to the hospital monday night and have cervidil. Then in the morning we'd start pitocin. What I'm wondering is... should my husband plan to stay overnight while I have the cervidil? I know cervidil can sometimes get labor started but sometimes not. I'd obviously prefer for my DH to have as much rest as possible, so I'm tempted to send him home, but I obviously want him there for when I'm in labor. We live about 15 minutes from the hospital, so it's not too far, but not super close either. I'm just wondering what has worked for other people?
Also, my doctor never mentioned anything about how/what I should eat the day of the induction. I'm thinking I should eat as normal (and probably right before I leave for the hospital) since it's likely to be a loooooong time before I get a meal again... would you agree?
