You do not have to give in to a cesarean! As others have said, you will eventually go into labor and cannot be turned away when that happens. If you do opt for a cesarean you still have rights, you do not have to be strapped down. You can create a baby-friendly, gentle cesarean plan. You have rights, do not be afraid to exercise them. The way you feel about yourself, about your birth experiences, is important and it matters.
If you think that a cesarean is your best option (which, honestly, it does not sound like you really do), google gentle cesarean or mother-centered cesarean for ideas like immediate skin-to-skin and nursing in the OR, delayed cord clamping (3 minutes), no separation of mother and baby. However, you also need to consider why you are doing this. Is it for the convenience of everyone else or is it what you think is best for you and your baby? Are you planning on having more children? Do you know how difficult it is to find a provider who will take a patient planning a vba2c and what the increased risks are with a 3rd or more cesarean? All of these things need to be considered when making your decision. Stand up for yourself and do what you think is best, based on your evaluation of the benefits and risks, NOT what is easiest necessarily. Best of luck to you.
You stressing out about this is making it worse and could be what is holding back your spontaneous labor. Relax. Know that you are in control of this birth, don't let the doc use scare tactics on you. Get some rest. Give into giving birth and let go, the stress is not helping.
1st I would HIGHLY recommend you get in to see a chiropractor ASAP. They can do accupunture / accupressure to naturally induce.
Walk walk walk and sex sex sex. Have you done any natural induction techniques yet? There is a pressure point between your thumb and index finger, apply pressure there for a little while.
Are you open to castor oil? If so, take 2oz mixed in a smoothie. Wait 4-5 hrs, then take another 2 oz mixed in a smoothie. Castor oil inductions are not spontaneous. You will have diarrhea 1st and may not go into labor until the next day.
