Hello everyone it is great that you all have such healthy happy babies!
I have a question that I would like your opinion on. I am at 41 weeks on Sun and I had an ultrasound yesterday and NST and while he is lookin' good his estimated fetal weight is about 11.5 lbs!
Now I know how off those estimates can be- they said 1.5 lbs +/-, but that still put him pretty big, and the "recommendation" at this point is a c-section.
I was very upset by this news. Soo I have an appt with an OB on Mon, and with my MW. I just don't know what to do. I haven't had ANY real signs of labor- very mild cramps, no strong contractions, no bloody show. Right now I am 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced. I know inducing would be brought up on Mon regardless of his weight.
I just not sure if it's better to induce with all those drugs, labor forever and possibly end up w/a c-section anyways if things don't get moving, or just do the c-section. I really don't feel like I will be going into labor naturally anytime soon unless it happens hard and fast out of the blue.
So WWYD? Try to induce? Everything I've found online has been like "yeah they said he was 9 lbs so I had a c-section..." if he was at 9 lbs I would for sure be like no way! But 11+ is kinda freaky I have to admit. I know I am strong and have been planning a water birth this whole time- but I worry about both of our health and safety.
TIA for any opinions you would like to share.
