I've been reading up on this on the internet. From what I read it really works but I'm scared to try it. My baby is measuring big also so my doctor said that he would induce me on the 30th of June. I'm going to talk to him about it today and see what are his feelings on the acupressure.
Let me know what he says. I have an appt for acupuncture on monday and then again on the following tue. my doc is going to sweep my membranes next week, but just alittle she said then a good one on the 5th of july to really get things going, im hoping between the acupuncture and the sweep I will go into labor on my own. MY first son was born at 39 wks and was 8lb 11oz and i had 4th degree tearing, my 2nd boy was born at 38 weeks and was still 8lb 8oz and i had 2nd degree tearing. the 2nd degree wasnt so bad but she had to like and hr of prep and vigorous stretching. our goal is to get her out less than 8lbs.
I didn't get a chance to asked him about the accupressure because he said that he was going to induce me on the 30th of June plus I've already started to dilate. He said that I might not make it to next Thursday. I've never went past 38 weeks and I tore with both of my boys so I know what you're talking about. My boys were 7 lb 9 oz and 7 lb 7oz, so that's the reason why I was kind of freaking out because she was weighing at 7lb 4 oz at 36 weeks. I'm sorry that I didn't the information that you needed but keep me inform on how everything goes and good luck.
