My first birth started out fine but after 58hrs I was convinced to have an epidural and an hour after that an emergency c-section. I don't remember them saying anything about him being distressed at all. They said he was too big and I wasn't progressing any further. He was 10lb 10oz.
A doctor said I would need to have the next baby by elective c-section and the only way I would have a natural birth was if the baby came early on its own and was small.
There is no way I would want to be in that situation again. I have my son to think of this time and I don't want to spend any time in hospital away from him.
