Quoting Lizplustwo:" I think doctors try to scare you into unnecessary procedures...Personally I would not let them induce me because of a "big baby". My first was 9 lbs 8 oz...still waiting on this one."
I have heard horrid stories about being induced and Id really hope not to have to do it.
My first was a vaginal birth so Im not too fussed pushing out big babies just not when their head is the wrong way round cos i had to push or 2 hours lol. I think with csections they generally wont take them out early even if they are big.
My SIL had a baby 4 weeks ago and knew from the start she had to have a csection and he was measuring '45 weeks' and they still didnt bring him our early. He was just under 8 lbs so I know those scans are never correct.
