I have an online friend whose OB is pushing to induce at 39 weeks because at 38w5d her son is measuring at 7lbs on ultrasound and she has "small hips". Her daughter was born vaginally and without induction; she was only about 5lbs.
My friend hasn't heard anything about the "big baby" reason for induction being questionable but does feel like her OB is "induction happy" so she's open to good info. The more scientifically sound the better I think, vs. just anecdotal stuff.
Ready? GO! :D
