I went to dr yesterday im a 3 and 80% thinned out and they sent me home I called the nurse this morning cause I think they should've kept me slowed down labor gave me a steroid shot etc. main nurse called me back and said her measuring big is helping us since im 34 weeks it's early but she is measuring 38 weeks. Which is no suprise I have huge babies. She said I could be at a 3 for weeks but with this being my 3rd child she's lible to come fast since I had gray at a 4 within two hours. She told me to take it easy and if I don't go into labor before Monday or have pains that blake would see me then if im a 4 Monday he will let me have her.

Them measuring big doesn't mean they are ready to come. Lungs need time to fully develop. Yeah maybe some people have babies that early and they are fine but then you have babies who have serious problems.  Just because it's your 3rd doesn't mean baby is gonna come fast. This was my 4th and longest labor yet. You can be dilated for weeks and weeks and nothing happen. If I were you I'd take it easy and keep baby in longer.

Of course im taking it easy lol I don't want her here early but like my dr said she's gonna come when she wants. And yeah I agree my 2nd was fast but she maybe faster or slower who knows. Had a few contractions today but nothing close together yet. But they did say if im a 4 Monday they will take her at 35 weeks they are gonna check her lungs first and give me steriod shots. She's bout 7 pounds now at 34 weeks but that's sonagram so could be off or on a pound.

The nurse told you what any Dr office would tell you. Which is a good thing.

That extremely responsible for them too take her  at 35 weeks regardless of how big she I would never ever let that happen.  Hopefully she won't need to stay in the hospital

If im in active labor at a 4 they said they won't stop it. I was in active labor at a 4 with my son and had him in two hours took ten mins to push him out.. Im also gettin steriod shots if she has to stay in the hospital my dr said won't because her weight cause she's over weight it will be because of her lungs if they steriod shots don't help.. But I'll be right here with her IF it happens.

Ohh, okay. They won't try to stop your labor if you're only 35 weeks??

If I was just a 3 they would send me home like I am now. Or a 4 they may send me home but if I was a 4-5 havin constant contractions ten to 5 mins apart they will proli give me steriod shots and let nature take its course with her being so big he said it's possible I got my due dates wrong and maybe really 38 weeks I been measuring ahead since 12 weeks

Ehhh, did your doctor tell he'd give you the steroids, or are you just assuming?? I ask because they're given prior to 34 weeks, and labor has to be delayed for at least 48 hours after the first injection for it to be effective. You don't just get a shot and have a baby right afterwards.

The doctor should be trying to stop your labor. I don't understand why they are so nonchalant about it when you aren't even fullterm yet.
