For my first baby, I had a completely natural birth. 10 days over due. She was 7lb 8oz and her head circumference was 33.5cm and just fit.
My second baby, I went into labour naturally. 10 days over again. But used every drug, epidural and ended up having an emergency C-section after 14 hours on true labour, because he just did not fit. He didnt even drop. He was 8lb 13oz with a head circumference of 35cm.
Now I have to make a choice. Do I want to elect to have another C-section, or do I see how I got doing it naturally again? Or do I push to be induced around the time I would be having the C-section, because then bub will be smaller so might fit easier.
All in all. I dont want to go through 14 hours of labour onlt to have another C-section when I could of just had a planned one, and feel like I have failed again...
