    Looks as though Im being induced in 6 weeks.
    Baby weighs 5lb exactly and is measuring at 35 weeks (I dont understand that)- though Im techinically only 32 weeks, the baby is the size of a 35 week fetus, so obviously he had a growth spurt. Apparently, if I havent given birth to him within the next 6 weeks, it's an induction for me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Other than that, everything went well.
    What are inductions like?

    Yea I guess so. I just dont like the thought of having a big baby because boy, it's gonna sting a bit ;)
    Would you say 5lb was big at this stage? hospital said its just over average, but I had noticed KX's lil one was just 3lbs+ at 30 weeks... do they really grow THAT fast?

    well I had scan and was told amelia not big ha ha ha aha

    what a joke!

    I dont trust those scans tbh but maybe I got a dopey mare?
    Bigger babe is the easier so dont worry will be better on baby as they will have more strength and energy to push out,I got melie out in three pushes so goes to show. Plus the induction didnt feel any different to me but then I had,had enough by then anyway,

    Hi Louise,

    My lil one was 3lb 1 oz at 30 weeks exactly and that plotted on the 95th centile line (the top), so yours must be way off the scale at that weight. :wacko:

    Induction isnt too bad :blush: More painful than normal labour apparently but u wont know the difference, I never .

    well baby is measuring in at 35 weeks, not 32- docs said its average size because they give or take 3 weeks etc: Ive seen my notes, and the charting, it's all spot on- so I dunno.

    How accurate are the weights that they tell you during scans? Only reason I ask is because I've heard of loads of American women being told they're having huge babies and are then are given c-sections early (for the insurance money!) then have average sized ones.

    TBH, I have been induced and gone naturally, and I didn't find natural less painful or induction more painful....I wouldn't chose either of I had a choice, and as you don't have a choice, I don't think either is worse, they are both as bad as each other! But on a good note, I eventually got an epidural to work this time, and once that kicked in, it was heaven :baby:
