My last baby was born at 37w3d. I went into natural labor with him and he was born healthy, but did end up being a very colicy baby. My dr. had proposed an induction with him at 37wks due to his growth scan at 28wks. He was in the 85% tile. I was not comfortable with this either, as I have had big baby's before (9 and 10lb'ers). We agreed to one more growth scan at 34wks, and he was back into a 70% group. At 37wks, he was born 7lbs6oz and 19.5 inches long. He is now 9months old and is in the 15% tile for height and weight!!!!! I think he is in the lower group due to coming so early. Out of 7 kids so far, he is the only one not to be over 50% for height and weight. His full biological sisters are in the 105% and 95% groups for height and weight.........I will never want a baby before 38wks again!
