My cousin is maybe 5' 1" and might have been 110 before she got pregnant. She had a 9 and a half pound baby. If you feel 8 pounds is big...they get a lot bigger. As far as tearing, my second was 8 lbs 10 oz (2 weeks early) and i had a small tear that needed 2 stitches. My third was 8 lbs 6 oz and i tore from c**t to ass. He came in one push and was crowning before i started to push. That being said, i was induced all three times...once 2 weeks past, once 2 weeks early (heart rate spiked at 200 and wouldn't drop so they broke my water) and on my due date. I had GD with the youngest two, so both were medical reasons and with my daughter i had a heart murmur plus she was in position, but i hadn't dilated past 1 but was thinned out, contractions 2-4 minutes apart for 3 weeks, so it was more to help get it going. I personally thought it wasn't that bad the first and third times, but the second time i pushed for a lot longer since he hadn't dropped and was early.

I was induced with my son at 39 weeks.
Everything went just fine. I was in labor for 17 hours.
My son was perfectly healthy. (:
I'm due in 26 days again with a little boy.
We haven't talked about inducing with this one yet.
No need really, but we will see.
I hope I go on my own. I want my water to break
or start having really bad contractions and have to go in
on my own. Lol.

Im up for induction as long as its between 41 and 42 wks never more never less unless life or death situations ya know but to me a baby being to chubby or head to big and things like that are just odd excusses to have an induction my brother has always made a remake to women that have said they were induced or csectioned for purposes such as those and thats " if your a coward stop spreading your legs no one said child birth was easy" hes now 25 and hates to realize the new procedures they have for everything these days but if its medically necessary its fine .... Baby should be out before 41 weeks to de,rease bowel movements

Quoting ☾BizzyBee♉:" :!: VWS. Pain meds make delivering easier. Induction makes it harder, increases the risk of emergency C-section, and makes baby come out before baby is ready. Big difference from blocking pain. "


:!:
exactly.



epidurals fucked up my back so much.
blahh

In the end its your body, your decision. People are gonna always have something negative to say (especially on here) but im sure whatever decision you make will be best for you and your baby. Good luck.

my doctors just never really wanted me to have a to big of a baby type thing and no child birth is not easy at all.. i would love for this baby to come on her own but holly molly she just thinks its to warm in there lol... i like to go at least a week over.. but with my daughter i wasnt aloud to push untill they cleaned my uterus out because she pooped in it so she was meant to come that day.. at least i think so

i just hate when people have to be negative about other people.. and see well i never knew that inducing can lead to c-section but so does every thing else... really doesnt it all depend on the person
