Induced Bubble Bum Due August 17 (boy); 1 child; Imperial, California 2905 posts

Hey ladies,



I have some questions... I went into the Dr. today for basically my 39 week check up (38+5days). After talking to my Dr. he told me to come back on tuesday to get checked and we will see if he wants to induce me or not. This came about because I was concerned about the size of the baby (I feel much bigger this time) as my first son was only 7.8 and they have difficulty getting him out.



On one hand I want to be induced cause I'm in a world of pain, but on the other I feel selfish not giving him to at least 40 weeks before being induced.



I was curious on what people thought, ultimately it is my decision at this point and I'm not sure..



Thanks for all the advice and comments in advance :)

I wouldn't do it, personally, but I am adimately against inductions. Go with your gut, I guess.

If I had the chance to induce or ride it out, I would just ride it out. After all, those few extra weeks could make a world of difference.

I would still basically go to term since my due date is next sunday (18th) they wouldn't induce me until friday next week so it would only be two days early not a whole week or anything..

It ups your chances of ending up a c-section. I'd wait it out.

I'd wait it out. With my second I was bigger, but actually ended up with a quicker labor and the delivery was literally seconds... I pushed once and had no tears. She was half a pound smaller than my first.

I would wait. Honestly. I was induced due to medical reasons with DS and would never electively choose to. Nope nope nope. I wish I could have waited it out.

f**k those doctors. How are they going to make you get induced? Ugh. I hate them. That's why I was induced.
