Eat ! I went into labor naturally ( water broke) but after 5 hrs my contractions stopped so I was induced with the pitocion(spellcheck) my contractions became more intense and I made it to 5cm before I asked for an epidural ( mines was painless ) but everyone's different , overall I had a decent experience with being induced I was just starving (17 hrs of labor + no food = miserable )

Ya I'd eat lol they don't let you eat until labor is over. I was induced and I had an awesome experience.

Thanks ladies I'm just a bit nervous and love hearing other people's stories see my mother in law said they don't let you eat or drink in labour but I wasn't sure weather that meant even being induced I've made a packed lunch more for the hubby than me but at least I can eat hehehe xxx
