A pregnancy with well controlled GD, normal baby weight, and no other abnormality, do you consider induction early or continue to watch it until week 42?

Delivery by a patient's due date at the latest. Generally delivered at 39 weeks or so.

From what I understand, the stillbirth rate is increased after 40 weeks compared to the general population and although the absolute number may be low, the benefit does not justify the risk of this.
