I am just curious.. I've had gestational diabeties since I've been about 20 weeks pregnant. At my last doctors appointment (I am almost 32 weeks pregnant now) my doctor suggested being induced at around 37-38 weeks. He said that the baby is the proper size, and I am managing the diabeties with proper diet.
The reason I am concerned is because with my first son I ended up having an emergency c-section when he was still breech, and had passed a stool.
I've also heard that induction creates a higher chance of c-section, and coupled with the gestational diabeties that can also increase the chances of another c-section. I really don't want another surgery!!
What has been your experience with induction, vbac, and diabeties? Is it common practice to induce mothers with gestational diabeties? Did you end up with a c-section? Has anyone had a successful vaginal delivery following a c-section when you also have gestational diabeties? I am afraid that I will be pressured into having another surgery just based on circumstance, and not because it may be necessary..
Any stories or advice will be greatly appreciated!
