I chose to be induced the day I hit 40 weeks mainly because my doctor was going on vacation and I wanted him to deliver my baby, nobody else. Before I went in that night, I was really nervous and felt like I could wait it out until he returned, but I ended up just going in. I had read many nightmarish induction stories but I had no issues. I was already dilated close to a 5 when I arrived, but they immediately started me on pitocin. I ended up only being in labor for 6 hours. It was super easy and if I had to, I'd choose to be induced all over again.
