Why don't they induce labor when they know your baby is large? My baby is proberly now 9lbs im due sept 10 but who has there baby on there due date not many im already looking at being overdue. I thought they would induce me since the baby was so large but I guess thats not a concern for them. Why?

Large Baby
Hi. My son was 9lbs 15 1/2 ounces born ten days after his due date. My son was stuck in the birth canal, and after a very long 4 hours of pushing, they used vaccum suction and forceps to get him out. The thing is that even if your going to have a larger baby, it doesnt mean that you will not be able to get the baby out. My pelvic area is too small which caused my sons head to get stuck. They wont just induce you because every day the baby is in is better. If they had any fears they would induce you. Like I said you might be able to push this baby out in a few pushes or many. The size of the baby does not make the labor any easier, I will tell you that much. So hang in there and dont upset yourself thinking about it. Just remember, no matter how big or small, or how painful, it is worth it! God bless you and good luck :)

Dun worry much!

I am pretty sure the docs have a reason not to induce ure baby. I am sure they dun want u or ur baby to suffer in any way. Maybe they want to let the baby arrive naturally instead of forcing him/her out. So hang in there and everything will go fine.

Congrats!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. My baby was 6 days overdue and when he was born he was 11 lbs 1 oz! At my 7 month ultrasound he was almost 9 lbs by then! But he was healthy and I had him naturally with no problems.
