Ditto. I'd really recommend letting things happen naturally. Induction for a non-medical reason really increases your risk of more interventions which could lead to c-section or other complications. Size estimates can be really inaccurate, so do your research before letting your doctor talk you into it. Also, cervical checks aren't an accurate indicator of impeding labor. Everybody (and every labor) is different and you could go from 0-10 in a few hours, or walk around at 4cm, 80% effaced for days or weeks. Baby will let you know when it's time!
