ETA: I don't want to be rude by any means, but if you focused half the attention on relaxing and taking charge of your anxiety as you are worrying about your due date/trying to get people to perform invasive procedures you might actually go into labour naturally. Your anxiety is going to inhibit labour starting on its own..

It seems to have worked for me but you need a favorable cervix for them to be able to perform a S&S.
Yes I was just on the phone to my friend and she told me she has 5 s&s and none worked. Some of us just have stubborn bodies
It is best to go naturally, I don't understand why you would want to be induced if there is no medical indication? Do you have any reason to believe your baby is in danger other than "dates?" You can have an u/s to confirm placenta is still healthy, level of amniotic fluid, etc. Try requesting an u/s rather than an induction?
Spontaneous labour or induced, stress hormones won't help you either way, take yourself off to see a psych/mental health worker about your anxiety.
OP, how are you going? Do you have good news?
Pregnant for the first-time?
