Hey T~ I have diabetes mellitus, and had always heard that doctors would be willing to induce 2 weeks early because of the placenta maturing early. Well this is just not the case with my doctor-unfortunately. My dr is monitoring me weekly now, and said that while he wont plan to induce early, he will not let me go over 40 weeks, (which being that our babys are big is probably true with your doctor too). My doctor said that as pregnancy progresses in the diabetic , so placenta problems are common, still birth, and immature lungs, among other things, when he sees fit for my baby to be born, everything will be set in motion immediatly.
