I'm pregnant and due in 3days and my Dr js told me a week ago Tht my pelvis bones are tight and my child is too big so I should get a cesarean but iv asked to wait a week more to c if I can get into labor and have normal delivery ..is there any way I can do something to help my pelvic bones loosen up? And I've been told by my Dr not to eat and discontinue my meds ..is that normal too?

It should be your choice how to have your baby. Usually the doctors want C-section because they don't want to wait through the longer delivery times for natural birth. But there can be risks to you and the baby such as more vaginal tearing and bleeding, or the baby's shoulder could get stuck behind your pubic bone and cause strain on the baby.

To help loosen your pelvic area, get the floor on your hands and knees. Keeping your arms straight and your thighs perpendicular to the floor, raise your back up and hold for a few seconds, then push your belly down toward the floor for a few seconds, then repeat. Only raise and lower your midsection. This exercise encourages the baby into an optimal fetal position and also helps stretch and soften the pelvic joints.

Apparently Cz I'm putting on too much weight lol.

I'm not anemic but I think she gave me these two from the start of my pregnancy to be on the safe side or something.

I appreciate all the replies, they are helpful. Thankyou all.

I am sort of petite :D I hav been told that the baby's head is in correct position, she actually umm checked and said it's there. About the dilating she hasn't said anythin, we're just waiting for my Labour pains/water break. And if not then they'll induce me or something. Il continue eating as U've said Il need energy either way done. Would u suggest I stop my medication though?

Raye, thanku Sooo much. I'll do the exercise.

Sarah, my Dr said I've put on too much weight and my baby is too big- about 7.5pounds. My meds are Shelcal-500 (calcium n vitamin D) and Ranferon-12 (blood builder. Oh and I haven't had a CT scan/x-ray for my pelvis bones either.

Btw I'm 20yrs old, I used to weigh 42kgs before and last I checked was yesterday, I'm 59.5kgs,, is that too much? I cudnt gain in my first 5months and only started gaining after 5months :/
