How's every thing down there? Are you dilated at all? Is the cervix ripe and ready or is the shop still well and truly closed. Induction will work better if your body is ready

Not sure what's going on down there. I'm going to get the midwife to check when looking at doing the S&S.
Deep down I wouldn't hold it against him or feel resentful.

Another way to look at this is how would you feel if something went wrong?
I am bias on the topic as my induction by gel resulted in uterine hyperstimulation and it was a very dangerous situation.

I personally wouldn't want to go through labour and birth without my DH. Not because I want him to enjoy the experience but because I need him there for support. And as you say, if something goes wrong, who will be able to make the decisions, be your advocate, look after baby?

Is there anyone else that you feel comfortable having with you other than your DH?
Have you asked your DH how he would he feel if something went wrong and he wasn't there, just to get an idea of how he feels about that?
I haven't had an induction so I can't help on that front sorry...
Fingers crossed for you that it happens soon naturally

I would get a s&s tomorrow and have cervix assessed for an induction then factor that into my decision. If DH was definitely going overseas I'd book the induction for (hopefully) early next week.
I was petrified of my induction (fourth birth) but it turned out to be my best birth in terms of labour length, blood loss and time the placenta took to exit the building. I ended up only needing gel and ARM and started with a very favourable cervix (4cm dilated).
