Induction Date Set
My date is set for 1/23 at 37.5 weeks. I'll have an amnio the day before to check for lung maturity. I am being induced for insulin dependent diabetes and some wonky blood pressures with protein in my urine. Baby measured 7 lbs 12 oz, yesterday at 35.4 he won't be a little critter.:giggle2:

Re: Induction Date Set
Wow, that is soon. Are you nervous? Have you had a baby that early before? I had an ultrasound at 33w4d and they said 6lb 7oz. I have a tendency to have large babies so I was not surprised. If he continues growing at this rate he would be similar to my last baby who was 9lb 10oz. My "medwives" are having kittens though:chuckle: I am very lucky not to have any other risk factors so I can't imagine they will make an issue before 39 weeks.

Re: Induction Date Set
I have had one at 34.5 weeks and another at 37.2. Almost all were at 38 weeks and a couple days, so this is really only about 4 days sooner. Half of my babies were just over 9lbs and one was 10 lb 10 oz. My guess is this guy will be in the upper 8's to 9lbs even 2 1/2 weeks early.

How exciting! My c-section is officially scheduled, as well, but no until Feb 15th!

Re: Induction Date Set
Do they require a nursery stay or come home right away? I think I have PTSD from 2 of our babies needing a week in the hospital and I am beyond anxious that this one will too. I am curious about how they decide to induce prior to 39 weeks because I know macrosomia is not an indicator. I have VERY precipitus deliveries so I am willing to consider AROM at 39 weeks because in the past I have been 5cm by then anyway.

Re: Induction Date Set
good luck! I hope baby does just fine and you get to bring home a happy and healthy little one with no NICU stay :)

Re: Induction Date Set
Even my 34.5 weeker did great with no oxygen needed. We are double checking the lungs to make sure. My biggest concern is baby nursing well.
