No need to rush into an induction, if you don't want to do it DONT, BUT with the headaches and the baby slowing down I would opt for some extra monitoring instead (a u/s and deff a blood pressure test for you).

I've only had 1 u/s and last time I couldn't feel him move they said it was fine as long as I feel him at least 1 time

So you never got a reason why? You do realise that the choice is up to you? 

Normal human gestation is 28-42 weeks so you are nowhere near that

No but, I go on Thursday so I will ask my doctor then. I saw a different doctor last week and it was the first time meeting her. I didn't agree with the plan to be induced.

 Throughout the world, there exists a group of women who feel mightily drawn to giving care to women in childbirth. At the same time maternal and independent, responsive to a mother's needs, yet accepting full responsibility as her attendant; such women are natural midwives. Without the presence and acceptance of the midwife, obstetrics becomes aggressive, technical, and inhuman.
