Quoting Snowgembabygirl:I am measuring a week and a half ahead so 33.5 weeks not 32 and i am huge so I'm like GREAT! Cut it out early! It's my third and i have already gained 40lbs and 15 inches in girth!!!!!!! They said no they have to go by the last period! DARN! Mid October sounds better than late October! I wanted it out at 5 months!
Quoting Keodenver:Your due date can always be off plus or minus 2 weeks. Just remember, your baby will come when they're good and ready!! Just don't be convinced to induce b/c your doctor thinks the baby is too big....silly, silly, silly!
Quoting Keodenver:Sorry, I 'm having trouble quoting you, but JUST IN MY OPINION, the medical professionals, in general are quick to induce. If a woman is induced b/c she's measuring too big, they automatically assume the baby is too big or mom is further along then initially though, etc, etc, etc. Well, WHAT IF you are just measuring big? My midwife (who never thought to induce me) thought I was going to have a BIG baby, b/c of the way my belly looked. She knew w/out a doubt that I could birth her naturally, big baby and all. Anyway, when she was born, she was 7oz. Hardly a big baby. I was just ALL stomach. Anyway, back to the point. If you're induced before baby is ready (which a lot of women are) you run the risk of lung problems and lots of other things with baby. Then there is also the risk of c-section b/c you weren't ready to labor yet anyway.....ahhhh. ....the list goes on! Not worth the risk just for a matter of convenience!! Just say no to inductions!!
