What did your OB say: You should have already discussed with your ob, u need an ultrasound to measure the weight of the bay and to see if u have too much amniotic fluid, and if baby is weighing large if u were my pt would rec induction at 39 weeks or csection if baby measures too large, u do not want to end up with shoulder dystocia, please discuss with your OB on monday.
