Bring in labour

Seriously, don't listen about the babies weight. It is VERY difficult to predict babies size, and your doctor does not have you and baby in their best interest. 7lbs is nothing. They told me my son was gonna be over 10lbs, and he was 8lbs 2oz. They told me my daughter would be around 9 and she was just barely 7. They are never right.

Yep, PATIENCE. Your baby may be 7 lb now, but if you are not in labour, then your baby is not ready to be born.
Your gestation will run around 39-40 weeks, if normal. If not, you could go as long as 44 weeks. I did with mine.

Are you already full term? 7lb is not that big, he will lose up to 10% birth weight and estimates are not always accurate. That said I tried taking evening primrose oil and red raspberry supplements but the thing that really worked was acupuncture when my second baby was almost at 41 weeks. The second treatment triggered regular contractions and I gave birth that night. But they won't treat you unless the baby is already at 40 weeks.
