UPDATE: C-Section Now!I talked to my midwife this morning and I am in total shock. So, not only are they concerned because the baby is big, she has a large chest circumfrence, and there is too much amniotic fluid. Also, the baby hasn't dropped into my pelvis yet (one of the things they use an indication of a big baby) My midwife told me that she recommends a scheduled c-section. She told me the office would call me back to schedule the c-section. I asked my midwife how often these things are off, and she told me that they can be off by a pound. She said that if I tried to go vaginally, she would not deliver me. I got off the phone and started bawling.
I talked to my doula and a friend who hypnobirthed last year. My friend suggested going in for a consultation with one of the doctors, so I can feel better about this.
The midwife just called, DH talked to her and told her that we want to talk to a doctor. She said to call the office, the one on duty today is notorius for being a c-section pusher, so we are going to go in tomorrow and talk to the doctor who is in then.
I just don't know what to do, this seems totally ridiculous that this perfectly healthy pregnancy has turned into this (I passed my one hour glucose test, could I have had developed gestational diabetes in the meantime?). I am also blaming myself for not eating healthier and eating too much ice cream. I am scared, I feel helpless, I don't know what to do. I want to say no to the c-section, but if something does happen to the baby, I would never forgive myself. If I say yes to a c-section and this baby comes out a normal size, I will be so livid.
