I was induced for my kids. The first baby's induction was looooonnng and slow. I think because it was my first baby, and my body didn't know what was going on, it just took longer for my body to get ready. I went into the hospital the night prior, and had to get 2 rounds of the medicine they use to soften your cervix before they could even BEGIN to induce. With my 2nd, I went in the morning of the induction instead, since I guess the doc knew my body would respond quicker. And I was able to get a good night sleep at home. For your first, I think you are safe to wait until labor happens naturally, unless there is a danger to mom or baby.
