Okay I am due in twelve days but have a feeling that he is not coming any time soon. I have a daughter that just turned one less than a week ago. With her birth her head got stuck and was born a day after her due date. I'm worried that it will happen again if he's the same size. I really do not want a csection. It would be really hard to have my daughter crawling on me and needing me to carry her and trying to recover from a csection and taking care of a newborn. Would it be okay to ask if I can get induced on my due date to try and avoid it all. My daughter was 7 lbs. 12 oz. At birth and I don't want him to get any bigger then her with me already having problems with her birth.

Your daughter wasn't really that big. I had my daughter at 37 weeks and a day and she was 7 lbs and 5.5 is. No problem having her. Every pregnancy and delivery is different

You realize hun that even if you get induced there's no guarantee that you won't get a c-section.. a lot of inductions end in a c-section because of complications or the baby just wasn't ready. I don't want to discourage you.. hopefully it'll work for you and you can deliver him vaginal!

I would just be prayerful and hopeful because every delivery is different. My friend have a 13 pound baby natural birth.iknow that's big but. Every pregnancy is different. This baby doesn't have to get stuck  because of the first. Talk to ur docs so u can be comfortable and everyone is on the same page
