To induce or not to induce?

Im 39+3 today. At 39 weeks, gynae said my baby weight is 3.1kg & since im 147cm tall, it might get difficult to deliver naturally. She asked if i wanna induce but since im not dilated at all, labour will be 24 to 36 hours. I chose to wait 1 more week to see if my labour starts naturally. My next appt is in 2 days, im stressing out.. To induce or wait....

I got induced at 39w5d. Baby was born 26 hours later. Natural delivery. Sometimes your body may surprise you. I would say induce before baby gets bigger and before you go overdue. If overdue induce, there's a higher chance of baby being stressed out and poop in the amniotic fluids. But up to you
