Elective induction? What are your thoughts?


I’m 39 weeks today, and was considering asking the dr to induce me at 40 weeks? They are estimating the baby to deliver at around 9lbs so I don’t want to go past my due date. I know the estimations can be off, but it makes me nervous that they are right and he’ll be too big to deliver naturally. Is there anything else I should be taking into consideration? I’m a ftm so I’m not sure what questions I should ask or what else I should be considering.
