Even if your visitation schedule's vague, can there still not be more defined boundaries set up that you both must follow?  The heartache (or maybe heartburn?) may just continue or get worse if you don't.  Sorry this is so stressful.  Hugs and prayers for you!
I personally would not allow either, especially with your first baby, unless there's a problem.  If your baby's fine your fundal height is not getting huge, leave nature alone.  Inducing can be very hard on both baby and you.  Of course, if your baby's becoming distressed, or too big, then that too can be hard on them in birth.  But barring those complications, let your body and baby decide when the birth is, not some dr or midwife in a hurry. 
I feel badly for you. Although he doesn't seem willing to do anything at this point to reconcile, you know there are things you can work on from your end. Can you get some marriage counseling, or some resources on healing marriages, communication, etc? A great book is "Love and Respect" if you're looking.

I'm so sorry to hear about what you're facing right now.  Parenting is a huge job, and doing it alone is so much more difficult.  I pray you will find support both here and locally to help you.  If you feel it would be helpful, you may wish to search for a Mothers of Preschooler's group to encourage you as well.  There's a "find a group" link here:  http://bit.ly/100rx6s
