Were you overdue with your first baby?

I'm 38 weeks today and I haven't started dialating yet at all. My ob said she would induce me if I went more than 5 days past my due date. I'm terrified of being induced (read horror stories) and I thought I was out of the woods for being induced since my bp isn't as high as it was. What are the chances she'll come on her own?

Nope my first came 2 days before due date. Start using early primrose oil it helps soften the cervix

No, she came on her own. I didn't want to be induced.
