Induction at 39 weeks ?


Hi all, looking for others personal experiences on being induced ... I'm 36 weeks and currently my baby is measuring large , they said she could be 8.5/9 pounds at birth, so because of that they said I have the option of inducing a week early ... my doctor basically said either way they wouldn't know if I needed a section until I was in labor to see how wide my cervix would go since it's my first baby so either a week early or at due date wouldn't matter for that ... he said the upside to inducing would be the hope of a slightly smaller baby but it's ultimately my choice ...I'm torn on what I want to do and nervous about making such a big decision 😩
