I have been trying to keep an eye out, but I haven't heard anything about how her birth ended up. I know she was concerned because they thought her baby would be large and wanted to induce. She went into labor the day before she was scheduled for induction, does anyone know how it turned out?
I'm hoping it all went smoothly for her!
Aww, thanks for the thoughts... I'm here and so is our "little bundle"...

All is well, I had a c-birth after hours of "not progressing". He was posterior and didn't desend into the birth canal. I am still trying to figure out if there was anything else I could have done to help him out!! I didn't expect to have a c-section so I am still pondering over the situation. So many times I heard "your body won't make a baby you can't birth..."
Anyhow we are happy to have him and happy he is healthy.

Well, with all the sites I've read about fetal positioning, it does seem like posterior positioned babies are more likely to be born by c-section than anterior positioned ones because the delivery is more difficult. Maybe it's true that your body won't make a baby you can't birth, but that doesn't mean any woman can always birth vaginally without complications to herself and her baby. And, doggone, a 15" head is huge!
