Should I get induced?

I am currently 3 days past my due date and have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I am wanting to ask to be induced on the SO’s birthday if I am still pregnant, which would be at 5 days past my due date. Should I do this or should I wait even longer? This is my first baby and I am starting to get discouraged that he has not came yet. I don't know how much longer I can wait I am also very small and feel like he has no more room. Also I am almost positive he broke my rib the other day and every move he makes near it is very painful. Any and all advice is welcome. TIA

Hi, I totally understand... thought I was past my due date almost a week but different ultrasounds predicted different due dates. I am so happy I waited!!!!!! Best for the baby asauming healthy & kicking.. 1 week late and exactly on the due date of the very first Ultra at 6 weeks, my water broke and within a few hours delivered. I literally pushed twice (nurses trying to take my boots of in the bed) when wheeled into the room without pain. I think natural w/o drugs was so much better for us. Not groggy, felt euphoria afterward, so empowered and positive. The first was harder but was severely preeclamptic with the hellp syndrome and instead of inducing asked them to break my water and just kept pushing. Nurses told me they had not seen anyone do that in like 20 years b/c they would let me move around.

Honestly I did not take drugs with either but there weren't enough drugs for the pain when artificially induced another time.

Sex, prayers,nipple stimulation and lots of organic dates (blended with milk) 15/cup-so delish! Induction was much more artificially painful for me. Also, waited a little while because I wanted my child to have her own birthday.
