? For who has been induce.. About eating..

Hi Im soon to be induce, this Sunday at 6pm well I was wondering about what should I eat that day, since I've been told by my family members to eat mostly liquids, like jello, soups and that's because they said its better so I won't have an accident when I'm pushing or them having to drain idk lol I know it sounds weird but I really don't know!.. does it really matter what I eat that day? Or I have to eat light like they said?

Hey. I'd say eat anything you want!!! I ate a tiny yogurt parfait, then couldn't eat again for 18 hours (other then ice, orange popsicles, etc..). I was starving... Before i go next time....I'm going to eat as much as i physically can! Lots of small meals... Of whatever i want! Lol. Good luck

The accident they are referring to is having a bowel movement lol. Which with my first I ate before being induced and not only did I feel miserably ill but yeah I passed some bowels lol. I stuck to things like jello and water before I was induced with my second and it went so much better. My third I just did ice chips even before hand (I was craving ice by that point lol) and was good to go. But its up to you lol
