Brief Answer:
Wait for a week after November 4

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Induction can also be done if BISHOP's score is zero. I think you should take second opinion from another doctor in person to make sure your doctor is not pushing you to cesarean section.

You can wait even after Nov 4 for a week to start spontaneous labor.

There will be no harmful effects in future if you opt for induction.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
