  • You don't alway have to listen to the measurements , b/c if my sister had her baby would've been 7lb 5oz like the doc. told us and he came out with a c section at 4lb 9 oz and she gained 20 pounds so you never know go with what you feel is right

  • Are they having to do a c-section for a reason?

  • I was going to ask the same thing Christian-Mom79 was going to say. Is there a reason for the c-section? If so, most doctors will have you wait until 40 weeks unless it's necessary. I know, my family was trying to get me to be induced a week early and he wouldn't do it. I really didn't want to be early.

  • I highly doubt they will induce, even thought the u/s says 5lb, they can be off 1-2 lbs either way. I personally would wait him out. Congrats!
