I was induced with my second.
They asked me to come in at 5pm to get settled then inserted the gel (on the cervix) at 6pm. The gel softens the cervix, and for me it must of worked because after a night of what was like period pain and constant need to pee, my waters broke at 6:10am my contractions started right away (very full on 90sec contractions with 90sec rest, that was just the begining) and she was born at 8:07am. I gave in and used gas for the last 30 mins because it was so intense.
If my waters hadn't of broken they were going to break them at 9am and then start the drip if the contractions didn't start on their own.
Good luck with the birth - hopefully it all happens quickly.
