With DS, I went in on a Thursday, to get the check out of when they'd like to induce and they said "tomorrow" so they did the stretch and sweep thing where they break the membranes, put the gel in and sent me home. That was 4pm.
Came back to hosp at 7, was settled into my room by 7:30. They stuck the drip in straight away and broke my waters with their crotchet hook type thing. My contractions started pretty much as soon as the drip was in.
I was able to move around but it was limited. They stuck a clip on bubs head to monitor his heart rate. I could walk around if I wanted, but had to kind of struggle to make sure nothing pulled the clip off. I was reacting badly to the drip so they took it out at 2:30 and my contractions turned into hard labour/transition at that point. From about 6:30 I was pushing and he was born at 8pm.
Hope this helps a little.
