induction or be a big girl & wait it out? Taynia Craig Due November 21 (girl); Bunceton, Missouri 33 posts
3rd Nov '12

My doc said that he doesn't induce his patients until 39 week if there aren't any issues with the pregnancy. Since I am technically in my 38th week (37 weeks + 1 day), I was just curious on if my doc would induce me next week or should i just wait it out. I have some plans made Thanksgiving week and being this prego makes me feel like i can't do anything and i don't want to spend my holiday stuck in a hospital.
Apparently most of you women dont understand!! A simple just wait it out or get induced would suffice.

Just wait it out, doctors can be off on the dates, and it would be better to make sure you're daughter is healthy then possibly risk her being born just before she was meant to.

Wait it out. Why rush baby out if they're not ready?!?!

You should let your baby bake at least until her due date. That's what's best for HER.

You knew the length of pregnancy prior to getting knocked up, right?
It's high time you realize that shit doesn't happen on your own schedule.

The answers you are going to get is to wait it out till the baby is ready.

Just wait :)
There's plenty of future holidays to celebrate if by any chance you end up in the hospital for thanksgiving.
