So I am very heavyset, very healthy, and 41 weeks pregnant. A midwife (not the one I have now) said that the extra estrogen produced by all the fat cells inhibits your body from being able to go into labor on its own. Any one want to *ahem* weigh in on this statement? I really don't feel like being induced just because there's no chance I will go into labor on my own, so we may as well just get it over with ... Thanks.
