    Go as per your doctors advice. No need to induce before time. My mom delivered my brother after she completed 10 months. It was a normal delivery and the baby was more than 3 kgs. So just be positive and trust your body to deliver normally.

    Due date as per 12 week ultrasound scan is most accurate for EDD. Just go by it.

    Bunny,

    You said "some ppl are suggesting it to go for induction before or on 13 as they are it will be fully grown up n need not wait till 25"....Are they dr's or medically trained people?Why their opinion is more valuable than a dr advice???
    My Due date was 21 but I delivery 10 days before by C section cause the baby was fully grown and amniotic fluid was less....so that time what is correct is decided by dr.
    The EDD calculated by scan is accurate as it is as per the baby's development and EDD as per the LMP is based on the thought that the ovulation happened on the 14th day and the cycle is average of 28-30 days.
    All the babies are delivered theoretically at 40 weeks .And they dont overgrow....and dont need to be induced....If there are any issues then only dr. will suggest for C section....Please read more birthing stories and watch youtube video's ,Vblogs...it will help to understand the things better...all the best.....
