meal before induction

If you were induced, What did you have to eat before you went in? Can you eat alot of food before? or do they tell you not to eat? If I have to induced I will have to be at the hospital at 6am so I am think IHOP

Re: meal before induction

  • I'm in the process of being induced...cervital was put in at 8pm...we went to Applebee's for dinner. They told me to eat a meal and get a shower before coming in.

    I'm so bored since I'm letting my DH was basketball
  • I ate normal for breakfast and lunch today then had a gel put in. Then ate a normal dinner and went back and got cervidil. I was instructed to eat normally for breakfast as well before going back

  • I didn't eat anything (big mistake on my part) but they told me nothing too greasy.

  • I highly recommend eating a lot of protein in each of your meals that day of induction. That's what I did and I didn't feel any hunger until LO came out. Also I wouldn't eat anything acidic because lots of people throw up at some point during labor. Good luck!
  • I had to go in at 6am and I ate the night before and I had a few bites of cream of wheat before I went in. Yeah, I was wishing I would have eaten more.

  • I wasn't allowed to eat anything after midnight before my induction. Thankfully I had a fairly quick labor and stuffed my face with a cheeseburger and fries afterwards. Lol

  • I have an induction scheduled for Monday if baby doesn't come before then and was told I should eat normally beforehand. My hospital is big on letting mothers eat during labor, as well.

  • I went into the hospital the night before the induction. So I ate a big lunch. And then I ate dinner at the hospital before they gave me the pill to soften the cervix. So my last meal was at 8 pm the night before induction. And I didn't get to eat until the day after I delivered I wasn't hungry until the next day I had the baby.

    I had to be at the hospital at 5 am. I grabbed a biscuit from McDonald's on the way down. Once I got to the hospital, they said it would be awhile before we got started so they served me breakfast. I didn't get started until 8. My dr said I could eat regular food until I was dilated 4 cm.

    We went in for cervidil last night, too, at 9:30. They told me to eat lunch but no dinner yesterday. I am currently STARVING (they let me have 6 crackers after they monitored me for a while, but if I ever do this again, I'm coming full!!!
