That is a concern as well. At 34 weeks the doctor estimated him to be 5.5 lbs using u/s for measurements. Now I know that is just a guess but his measurements did put him in the 90%tile.

Has GD with all three kids. Oldest came on his own at 36 weeks, middle at 38 and little at 35 weeks. My little was my biggest at 8.1lbs and we knew that thanks to an ultrasound at 34 weeks. Doc said that he wouldn't let me go past 40 though but I never make it that far.

I will say that I didn't consider any of my inductions particularly painful. Perhaps, even if you are induced, there is no guarantee of the same pain and discomfort as your first labor. GL!

I went into labor naturally with my dd at 39+4 and she weighed 6lb11oz. I had diet controlled GD. I had an induction scheduled for 40w0d.

Re: ? if you had GD in any of your pregnancies.

I had GD that was very well-controlled with diet. My midwives would have allowed me to go to 42 weeks, but luckily DS came on his own at 41 weeks 3 days. I was monitored closely once I went past dates.

Even 10 days late and with the GD, DS was 7 lbs 2 oz and totally healthy.
