not sure if this is the right place to post this...
She is 38 wks preg and the docs have been talking about doing a c-section for months now - just because her last baby's shoulders were slightly stuck! No other reason. My sis was a nurse and told them they are crazy basically. She thought maybe the doc forgot and thought her son had ongoing probs from it or something - he was fine.
Well, now they are saying that if she hasn't delivered by next Wed they will do a stress test and sonogram and if the baby has gotten much bigger a c/s or if not much bigger just induce.
Doesn't help that my sis really thinks her last baby was almost too big. I keep encouraging her - telling her that midwives say if you can get up off your booty - squat, kneel, hang on someone etc - that your pelvis has 1-3 inches more space in it and I'm encouraging her to do that. But if she's induced she says they won't let you out of bed. I told her to sqaut in bed.
Well, as my mom says, my sis knows how to read all the charts, so they won't pull the wool over her eyes by saying that the heartbeat is fluctuating (when it's only off by 2 beats or something). But I'm so afraid for her because I know they will tell her that the baby is too big for her to deliver vaginally and that it will be risky to the baby to try it. And what is she going to say??
I'm not that close to her so I don't want to be pushy, but if I can save her from a c/s (I had one - ugh! with an only 8% c/s rate birth center). Any ideas??? I'm so scared for her!!
