Since my baby was measuring 2 weeks ahead at 28 weeks (3.3 lbs,) my OB wants me to come in for an ultrasound at 37 weeks (currently 34) to see if we should consider inducing. I know the measurements can be pretty off, so I wouldn't want to schedule it any earlier than 39 weeks. Both our families have a history of large babies although no need for c/s for size.
I often hear about inductions being much more painful and drawn out than if you went into labor naturally but a few ladies on my due date board said theirs was "great."
I would love to hear from others, so if you had a "smooth" induction, tell me about it.
