Anyone induced their baby at KKH?

Hello! I'm a ftm, currently at week 39 +4. Was wondering if anyone did induction at kkh? My EDD is on 18 August, and my gynae suggested for Labour to be induced on 18th when I go for check up. Do I have to go home and wait for contractions? or will I be at the hospital straight away already? Not sure if I have to bring my hospital bag for the check up! And I heard induction of labour is usually more painful than natural labour because of the stronger and more frequent contractions 😥#advicepls #1stimemom

Depends on what type of induction? Your gynae should have advised you. But usually if it’s a scheduled induction, you will be admitted already. So yes need to prepare ur hospital bag. From then on it’s a waiting game for ur body to be in labour. Pain wise, quite subjective. I’ve heard moms who got induced and delivered naturally couldn’t tell the difference in pain. To them both also PAIN!! Haha
