I'm 40 weeks, 4cm dilated, but I at most I get 5 contractions a day. And I do mean "at most". Some days I feel nothing.
I'm set to be induced in a week. Has anyone else been through this? Dilating well but no contractions? Were you induced? How did it go?

It's normal to dilate without feeling contractions. Hope you go into labor without being induced. It's normal for a pregnancy to go up to 42 weeks. I wouldn't let them induce me until 43 weeks with my first pregnancy. I went every day to have my bp and urine checked and for the CNM to check my baby's heart rate.
Being induced makes labor worse and you have IVs and monitors. There are effects on you and the baby. My first 2 babies were intervention free. My third was induced at 36 weeks because I was very ill and my life was in danger. I was able to have an easy labor and birth with no epidural. However I had a doula and childbirth training.
