  • ^^Yup. Sex and walking. Also keep in mind that ultrasound estimates can be off by as much as 2 pounds. They told me my first baby was going to be really big, and he was only 7 pounds 8 ounces when he was born.

  • The best way is to allow the baby to chose when he/she is ready.

    If is medically induce the Dr. will decide

  • That would be a great size, very lucky!
    But of course, baby may be a few pounds off of that too...
    Inducing is a serious consideration, risky.

    Why not wait for a normal spontaneous labor so you don't add risks to your baby or yourself?
