Tried it, didn't work for me. Don't let them induce you until you're ready, though. You by no means HAVE to be induced by a certain time, and certainly not if that time is before 42 weeks. I was induced at 40 weeks 4 days, by my own request, (I just knew something was wrong, and it was, my placenta was just barely functioning anymore, doc figured that my due date was off by at least a week), but that was a nightmare. Horrible, long labor, that ultimately failed and I ended up with a c-section. They tell you that you need to worry about placental insufficiency after a certain point, which is true, but I have not met ONE mother who had that, who didn't have the same as me, we KNEW there was something wrong, we KNEW that the baby needed to come out. If you're comfortable with continuing on without being induced, don't get induced. Baby will come when he's ready, and otherwise, you'll know when the time is.
