I remember when I attended anti natal classes with my first baby and being told, by a midwife, if a Dr suggest a "trial" labour to see if you can do it to say no and have a c-section.
My last baby was 8 pound 5 and his shoulders got stuck, thankfully not too badly but enough to scare everyone. I was advised then if I had any more children I would have to be monitored at the end to check bub is not too big. I am 24 weeks and measuring at over 26. I have been advised to eat low GI meals and have been for 10 weeks but not making much difference getting very big even now. And yet to have bubs real weight gain. Seeing OB at 34 weeks to discuss options but if bub is going to be bigger then 8 pound 5 there is no option but c-section. I know that some people believe that your body can do it no matter what size but why risk yourself and bub when not necessary.
