Babies weight at birth

Hi mummies! Anyone gave birth naturally (or induce) to babies weighing over 4kg? I'm at 37 weeks 4 days now and baby is already weighing at 3.6kg..gynae advises either I wait naturally, do induce labour since now weight is quite big or do elective c sect..I am thinking if I wait naturally baby will be over 4kg by then..would it be easy to give birth to a 4kg baby?

You can try. Sometimes even small built mothers might have wider canal for big babies to pass thru, sometimes they don’t. The latter would prolly end up in emergency c-sect. Your gynae seems attentive enough to offer the options. My gynae is not supportive of big babies. Personally at your week now I’d choose to induce. Anyhoo naturally or c-sect dun worry so much, just focus on the fact that you’ll be a mom soon 😀
