The 'power' of one?

Hey-just returned from the doctor.  I'm starting my 38th week today and I am dialated 1 cm.  What was your experiene/timeline in progressing once the process started?  I had a third degree tear with my DD, coupled with awful PPD and ended up nearly getting divorced in the process...I'm worried about letting this baby get too big.  My dr. says that once I am to an 'induceable stage' he is open to induction if that is what I want to do.  I go again next Tuesday.  Should I expect to be further dialated, or will this 'one' hang around for a bit?
