You can always refuse :)

Ok, I don't know the exact extent of OPs physical problems but she has some pretty serious ones, I think mostly with her hips. Some days she can't even walk and she's in physical therapy etc so maybe it makes sense for her doctor to want the baby out 6 days early....
And I'm normally way against induction especially before 42 weeks, but in her case I can understand and be happy for her :)

I was the same..literally screaming in pain. I was induced, not because of that though. Although I was happy LOL. But anyway, good luck OP!

My thoughts Exactly! My OB said I would have a 10lbs baby at least and she came out 7lbs....



Good luck!!

I'm extremely proud of her for making it this long without all the normal whiny posts and asking for induction a month ahead of time like some girls do who dont even have issues :)

Congrats! Good Luck! It is very odd they didnt do an ultrasound to see how big. I am not against induction at all, I have been induced twice. After they had to stop labor a ton of times before! But I always thought an ultrasound was done, I dont know how feeling a belly tells you size! lol My doctor felt mine & said wow that is a big baby he was right because I had an ultrasound & confirmed it. Im only 34 weeks & over 7lbs already. Either way Congratulations! =)

Thank you dear. :)



Yes, because of my hips being the way they are, delivering a baby any bigger than 6-7 LBS would require a c section, and he REALLY doesn't want to do that. We would both rather a vaginal delivery, so here I am.

Yeah true! I had hip problems from 12 weeks on..sucked! So I understand the pain lmao. I tried waiting for him to come on his own, but was induced at 40 weeks. I was pretty much forced into it because my supervisor basically started my maternity leave because he wanted my position to for sure be covered :roll:

I was told I was going to have a small baby and he actually came out at 8 pounds 7 ounces, feeling your belly cannot determine the actual size in my opinion.

Good luck! I hope you get the vaginal delivery you want and I really hope it goes fast and easy for you :)
