I had my first baby at the age of 22 born at 37 weeks @ 6lbs with a 5 day stay in NICU had my second baby at 23 born at 36 weeks @ 3lbs 8oz with a 6 weeks NICU stay Had my third baby at 26 born at 38 weeks @ 5lbs 13.5oz with no NICU stay.. Trust me you don't want to deliver any sooner then you have to... It can come with many problems.. Lungs might not be ready, low birth weight. Not try to scare you..

You want to be induced just because you are uncomfortable? Nope, not happening. This is the point in pregnancy where you really just have to suck it up. Your discomfort is not paramount here. Your baby is still developing and needs to stay in your womb right now unless your baby is at risk. No doctor will induce you because you are uncomfortable.

I don't know any doctor that would induce you at 36 weeks unless your baby was in serious risk. Also being induced also increases your chance of needing a c-section. Your baby will come when ready, and yes it's very uncomfortable but it's worth it in the end to just wait.
