Okay, maybe a silly question, but... My c/s was unnecessary and was for macrosomia (big baby). They thought she was over 10lbs. She was 8.13lbs. Now, I know that's not big. However, big babes run in the family (9-11lbs.). <i><span>Should I worry about that in planning a VBAC? Is that something you can work to prevent, like by what you eat?</span></i> My mom had three c/s and that is why they thought I would need one too. Hers were not for a big baby. Me, the first, was for fetal distress after they gave her pitocin for failure to progress after 7 hours of labor. The other two was because she had had a previous c/s. My tiny grandmother 4'11" birthed my dad at 9lbs. naturally. I'm 5'8", but my GYN says I have a narrow pelvis and she understands why my former OB/GYN gave me a c/s. I became angry and won't go back to her, but I'm wondering if I should put any stock in that. I want to HBAC and have found a midwife, but she doesn't see you until after you become pregnant, or I would have her check for "narrow pelvis". I have a large frame - big boned. I wear a size 10 shoe and my hands are the size of my father's, so that "narrow pelvis" is hard to believe.
