why do some women want to be induced if...

Why do some women want to be induced just because their bellies are so big?

that doesnt mean anything.

unless you really NEED to be induced & the doctor says so, why would you want to? Why not just wait until your baby is ready to come out?

  • I think it is because at the last part of the pregnancy you are just ready for it to be done because with the big belly is starts to hurt to breath, sit down, stand up, pee all the time...you are just done. I know that I was begging my doc to induce me at 37 weeks (he didn't but he said he would at 39 weeks but had my son at 38 weeks). My son was engaged for 10 weeks though before I had him and that was painful.

  • yeah, im just curious, i dont think its right at all, but im not banging on that woman at all. just to clear that up.

    but anon @ 1108, thats part of pregnancy, its expected right?

    and if they say the baby may be big, or something, i dont agree, i was over 10 lbs my mom waited until i came and so did my DH mother he was almost 11 lbs and had him naturally....

  • right, if something is wrong where it is needed but not just because you think you are too small to do it.... why dont you wait until the dr says that?

  • i was induced early {34-6} weeks with my 2nd . My belly was too big for my size {i'm 5'0} and it caused me ALOT of pain. I was also induced with my first cause she was almost 2 weeks overdue and i couldn't carry her anymore either.
