Re: Dropping "lightening" question
I can't really say from experience, but I've heard that some women drop hours before they go into labor- although it's usually for moms who have already had one baby. I think it probably depends. If your doctor is concerned that the baby may have difficulty passing through your pelvis because he's a big baby, I wouldn't think he would try to induce. That may be your doctor's concern. If the baby is not too big, they may induce if they feel that if they wait for you to go into labor too long the baby will get too big. Otherwise, I would think they would just wait to see if you go in labor naturally. Maybe someone else will have more first hand experience.
