Quoting Antonia French:" my OB is going to induce me tuesday night around 8 pm. and i just had some questions about some things. ... [snip!] ... i have to stay laying down the whole time while i'm waiting for my labor to start? Does any1 have any recomendations for me?"
Do NOT listen to any of these women. they are not your dr. and do NOT know what is best for YOU!
You do need to pack the basics. clothes for the baby, clothes for you that you don't mind bleeding on.
It doesn't make it more complicated.
It depends on how you are being induced, but with Pitocin, you can walk around if you want. At least until you get an epidural.
I LOVED my induction. I'm due May 17th and Plan on being induced the week of my due date or the week before. If you have any question's and you want the truth from someone who's been through it, you're welcome to PM me. Discuss your questions with your DR. No one on here has a PHD and few even have their RN.
