Hey all, im a mother of three and am currently pregnant with my fourth!
All of my babies have gone up in birth size, my first was 8lb 12oz my second was 9lb 7oz and my third was 10lb 6oz.
With my third because he was soo huge he got stuck in the birth canal, eg shoulder dystocia and when he came out he wasn't breathing and had to be resuscitated.
I went to the hospital a couple of weeks ago and they gave me a leaflet on shoulder dystocia just in case this baby is also very large, but it doesn't make for a very nice read and has scared me half to death if it happens again!
They may have to break my babies shoulder to get he/she out or the baby may even die if they cant get it out quick enough!
Do you think i should have the right to an elective c-section to prevent this from happening? Just wanted some other opinions before i approach my midwife.
Thanks guys x
