Quoting Mrs. Oakerson + two boys:" I am 26 wks..I went to my doc today, and the baby is jsut over 2lbs already. THey say he will be 9+lbs ... [snip!] ... want to do an early induction instead of waiting and him being too big and causing a c-section...What do you ladies think??"
I woud find anew doc,no matter how big they are their brain is not fully developed until 38-39 weeks, I wanted to be induced early with my last little girl,at our 36 week emergency hospital trip they did an ultrasound and the lady told us she was measuring so big she was weighing 8 lbs already, and if we waited till 39 weeks like my doc wanted she would be 10 or more,yes she was right she was 10.3,but if they would have took her early her brain would not have been fully developed and she probally would have had more problems in the nicu then she did being nig, we spent an extra 3 days in the hospital cause se was in the nice,only for a breathing problem when she first arived,and because she had a heart murmur,but just them assuming your baby is going to be too large and they want to take him/her early,i woudl tell them no, a c-section is not a big deal at all.
