39 weeks preg. & only 1cm dilated - could i go into labor anytime ?

Im new here... and 39 weeks pregnant (2nd child) and they are 6 years apart. I went to the Dr today & I'm only 1cm dilated. But with my 1st child, the day of due date, i wasn't dilated at all and ended up getting induced a week past my due date. Which ended up being a horrible delivery!  Im concerned this could end up the same way. Could i still go into labor at anytime? Im worried about getting induced again and would REALLY like this baby coming natural.
Any suggestions on what i could do to hurry things along or anyone else experience the same concerns?  Help plz!  :-)

Yes you could go anytime. I was 1 cm dilated and 16 days early and I had a water birth at home 6 weeks ago. I didn't do anything but it happened that way. You could try sex, walking and nipple stimulation. Good luck!
