It depends, they don't induce just because, I mean are you trying to get baby here by a certain date? Let's face it really you should only be induced if there is a medical problem, other than that you should just let your body do what it needs to do, it's a much more pleasant labor. No you don't have to be dilated in order for them to induce, however, in addition to that, there is NOTHING you can do to keep yourself dilated if you are not "ready" to be in labor, your bodies dilation will change hourly while you are pregnant, and that's okay. You can go from being 2 cm to 0 cm in a matter of minutes, and vice versa.

I agree wholeheartedly, they can't tell you for sure what size he is, it's just guesstimate. Are they accurate, not really, and most of the time they OVER estimate, not under. As far as size is concerned I posted my response to that in your original post. I personally think that you should quit stressing, and that you should let you baby lead the way into a natural delivery, but I'm one of those kooky moms that doesn't think that you should birth in a hospital either!
