I have heard a lot of statistics about how you are more likely to have a csection if you are induced (because your body may no be ready). That was enough to scare me out of it. Good luck to you!
IMO te ony reason for an induction is medical necessity. For you and your doctors convienience is not a good enough reason to put you and your baby at higher risk.
this... I read in the O&G medical journal that elective inductions on FTMs doubles your risk of c/s... most hospitals have about 15-25% c/s rate so you're looking at a 30-50% chance of ending with a c/s... those statistics would cause me to wait...
plus IDK what your birth plan was, but if you weren't planning on getting the Eli, an induction will make it harder for you to avoid this
