i went to the doctors a few days ago and im only 36 weeks,

when they measured my uterus it was measuring as if i was 39 weeks, they now want me to come in for an ultra sound for his growth.

im just a little worried.

would they induce me anytime soon if hes big?

has anyone else had this issue

Just because he is a large baby does not mean they will induce anytime soon. He still needs time to fully develop his lungs etc...

The scan will give them a good indication of how large he is...  My daughter measured quite a bit larger and I did end up being induced with her at 38 weeks. Not due to her size which ended up only be 7lbs but because of my high blood pressure.

Good luck! :)
