I just got back from my Dr's appointment and i was told that due to my baby being so big already, i might have to be induced when i reach 38 weeks....I'm currently 35 weeks.
She estimated my baby already weighing 6 pounds. Give or take a pound....
Was anyone here ever induced because of a big baby? How big was the baby and were you able to have it vaginally or c-section? Does inducing hurt?
This is my first baby. Any and info would be helpful...thanks.

I would not choose induction unless you absolutely have to. You might be further along then you think, in which case you could go into labor before then anyways, your babies weight could balance out within the next few weeks and you could still very well end up with an average size baby. I am 5'2 and weigh around 140-150 pregnant and about 110 normally and I have yet to have a baby under 8 lbs. All 4 births were vaginal deliveries. You have a greater chance ending up with a c-section with Dr interference then you do from the size of your baby. I would just wait and see in a few weeks what the size of you baby is, if its under 10 lbs I personally would wait.
