don't know wether to get the sweep or nothing!

So I'm getting offered the sweep in 10 days. That will be my due date 40+1 
Then if that doesn't work I get induced around 9-10 days later.
But I don't want the sweep, I've heard so many people saying it doesn't work.
Induction sounds great because I'll be able to get a bus or whatever into hospital, but obviously a higher risk of c section etc.
Will they induce me earlier than that if baby is big? My baby is nearly 8lb now.
