Angel, I think you're being smart. A big baby is an excellent reason to induce. And yeah, like we have all said, ultrasounds are notoriously inaccurate at estimating weight (despite some very sophisticated algorithms that have been developed)-- which means your daughter has just as good a chance of being *bigger* than predicted as smaller.
If you can't afford a doula, having anyone you love and trust (like your husband) is just fine. You will have a nurse by your side 24/7 [the doctor is there infrequently until the delivery itself], and that nurse is a trained professional who can provide all kinds of help, reassurance and knowledge. Doulas can be lovely additions but they are pricy, lovely additions. And many of them are thorns in the side, frankly.Blade, MD
