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.
