hi there, im from the uk and yesterday had my 34 week scan to check the position of my placenta, luckily it has moved! the only problem is i have been told my little boy is very big at 6lbs already! he has broad shoulders so i have been warned about shoulder dystocia and have an appt with the consultant 4 days before my due date if he is not here already. i am extremely worried and did not sleep at all last night,i wondered if anyone had been in this position? im going to ask for a c section or to be induced and wanted to know what the chances of me been able to be induced or c section are? thanks xx
I am not sure how successful you will be in asking for either really. There is a belief that baby puts on around half a pound a week until delivery at this stage so maybe you will be looking at a 8-9lb baby?? which is doable. My second was 8lb 13oz and I had a few stitches but no major trouble with shoulder dystocia etc. Good luck and I hope it works ou tsmoothly for you
