Just seeking words of wisdom! Being induced next week due to reduced movements with dc2. dc1 was stillborn. Did anyone ask for a sleeping tablet the night before? Or a suppository!? For those that weren't at all dilated, how did you go with the process? Any tips gratefully received.

I didn't ask for a sleeping tablet or suppository.

I wasn't dilated at all in advance but got to about 1cm with the pessary and that was enough to break my waters and start me on syntocin drip. From then I laboured for about 8hrs before straightforward birth. Was painful and had a lovely epidural though. I was 38 weeks.
