As long as everything is healthy inside for baby, it's better to let baby come out on their own time. You really can just say "no" to unnecessary induction.

That said, I know how difficult it is to say no to over-ambitious OBs. Keep doing what you're doing...and maybe cancel that appointment and reschedule for Thursday or Friday. They can't bully you if you aren't there.
My 8 lb baby wasn't any harder to birth than my 5 lb baby.
My 5 lb baby was the most difficult to birth.

Good luck. I know it can be difficult when you are done, but the baby isn't.
