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!!
