one of many times i'd say, ignore your husband! they have no idea what's going on, and they hear "times/weeks" and think it's this cut and dry thing.....if the dr's think you should be induced, then you should be.....it's possible to still deliver a 7 lb some odd baby.....but in a way you sound like me....*I* am at 22 weeks, baby is only at 17.....lucky me, fiance leaves all that stuff up to me, he only adds input on how i'm feeling, and what happens when *he* get's here lol.....maybe you will get a different u/s tech? i keep thinking, that maybe since my dr is so hasty, that is why i'm feeling uncomfortable with his "measurements"....it takes him like 2 minutes to do a full u/s.....but i hope all goes well.....i didnt even realize you were that far along!
Im just trying to understand something here. When you say you were recently measured at 42 weeks is that based on an ultrasound, fundal height, or both?
Have they mentioned anything about checking the volume of amniotic fluid?
Ok, first of all I would be induced if I were you.. at 32 weeks the baby's lungs are fully matured and he/she wouldn't even have to stay in the hospital..... My neighbor Amy had her son Kye at 34 weeks and he came home when she did ....I would seriously talk to you Dr. about inducing... You are far enough along for them to induce you... Also, you might want to have your amniotic fluid checked... It sound's like your baby could be produing more than needed......
