Is labor induction bad?


Just had my weekly today at 37+6 and the doctor said that we will be setting up a possible induction date at next weeks appointment. I was pretty excited about it because I'd love to have something to actually count down to but I was doing research and found most doctors only schedule an induction if there's high risk or complications with the pregnancy. I'm in perfect health, baby too. No issues like GD or preeclampsia, tested negative for group b strep.. This is my first baby so I'm not sure what exactly is normally done. So I'm pretty curious for some opinions and experience stories.
