40 weeks is full term. After 40 weeks your doctor will closely monitor you and baby to decide where things stand. If the baby is getting too large or the fluid too old, they may elect to induce you.
If induction is mentioned: discuss what kind of induction he/she has in mind and what it entails. When I was 2 weeks over due they simply broke my water. Contractions came naturally within a reasonable time frame.
The second time I was induced with a Cervadil Induction.
I would avoid Pitocin if at all possible. Usually this is only used to increase or strengthen contractions in a very slow labor or when where a long period of time has already passed since the water broke. Of course some Dr.'s with be Pitocin happy and attempt to administer it every chance they get.
