Last time I posted this, we got some pretty interesting replies. Let's see everyone's answers now. LOL


This isn't about inducing, or anything else. Most of us DO wait until Baby is ready. 8) This is just a fun post about IF you had a choice of picking between these two things, what would you pick, not forcing your child to be born. LOL We have to lighten up a bit, here, Ladies. 8D

 Well, I would do whatever my OB recommended. I trust his judgement entirely.

Whatever the baby decides.  Late though.  I had my son at 39 weeks and 4 days (he came on his own) and he weighed 7lb even.

If its only a week early... then definitely early. I wouldn't want her to come any more than 2 weeks early though.
