  • i was induced at 37 weeks. He was 7 lbs 6 oz,so you can imagine how big he could have grown in 3 or 4 more weeks!

  • My doctor was off in the opposite direction. She thought my daughter was going to be under 6 pounds at 40 weeks. I was induced due to my blood pressure 3 days before my due date, and she weighed 8 lbs. 3.8 oz. The ultrasound was closer, though; it estimated 6 lbs. 7 oz. at 36 weeks.

  • My dr started talking induction at 36 weeks for size reasons. I refused until my bp went up at 38 wks, then we induced. The dr estimated my baby would be about 8 lbs. My son weighed 9 lbs 4 oz!
