    I was in a very similar situation to you. 3rd child, DH was away for work and I had had 2 previous retained placentas and PPH. My OB induced me at 39 weeks because she wanted me to labour during 'business hours' so access to medical support (such as anaethetists, blood etc), were readily available.
    Overall my experience was good. I wish I took my OB's advice and had the epi straight up, because although it took a couple of hours to get going, once I started it was very painful and quick - but over in 1/2 hour. I had another retained placenta, so was rushed to OR again, so I was thankful it was in a controlled environment. I was happy with my experience, although not as good as my calm water birth for #2, but I felt safe and in control so I was happy.
    Good luck!!!

    I was induced at 39+5 using only the gel. Baby born with no issues about 4 hours after they gave me the gel.
