Catheter to dilate?


I’m being induced next Wednesday at 730 am. My doctor has me coming it at 11:20 next Tuesday am to check to see if I’m dilated at all. I’ve been at 1 CM for 2 weeks now. If I’m not further dilated she wants to use a catheter to dilate me. Has anyone tried this? Did it hurt? Were you able to get pain meds? Did you have to stay in the hospital after it’s put in or are you able to go home? How long after did you go into labor? I’ve been trying to look up information on it but I’m not having much luck.
