Thinning but not dilating


I had my appt yesterday I’m 36 weeks 4 days . Doctor said I’m considerably thinned out but not dilated(only a fingertip) . She said I’m considered full term at 37 weeks and told me to have everything ready . This is my third child . Regardless I’m being induced at 39 weeks exactly due to chronic hypertension . I’d love to go naturally before then of course lol . Anyone else in my shoes ?
