You might have to be induced, but it's up to your doctor how long they let you go before doing that.
That's totally true you may have to get induced. But some women can go from 0 to 10 very fast. I know a girl like that and she doesn't dialate until the baby is ready to come out within hours. Never know.
I have a friend who is at 42 weeks the baby will come when it's ready. They will only induce if they absolutely have to.
If you don't want to be induced you don't have to be induced! Unless there is a legitimate medical reason with you or baby. Unnecessary inductions can lead to unnecessary C-section. Baby will come when ready. You not being dilated and baby not dropping are signs that your body is not ready. 40 weeks! And your due date is just an estimate
