thanks for the info, this is all so new to me and a shock. I'm reading up on D&E's and it says they can cause implications for future pregnancies, this is my biggest fear....I do not go back to the doctor until 16 weeks for further assessment so I'm afraid this is going to be my only option....unless the baby has passed on his own quietly and stopped growing....I am not able to birth at home as I had a c section and this is very risky to me as my doctors stated, so I'm scared to no end as to how this is all going to turn out...I have 3 weeks to wait until a decision ccan be made, trying to work and take care of my 19 month old is proving beyond exhausting as I sort through all this...

I know when I was offered the medical induction I was told I would have to stay in hospital for it. Maybe they can offer that to you? So you get to birth safely in hospital incase anything goes wrong.

i'd love to do that but they said given I had a csection previously, that would probably be the case again...a vbac is very uncommon here especially in this case....

Baby is much much smaller at this stage to birth. If it makes it easier to visualise - I didn't even need to push for baby to come out, once i had dilated some (not sure how far but certainly wasnt 10cm) I just stood up and gravity did the rest
I'd say make it known what you want to do.

D&E - Dilation and Evacuation. D&C - Dilation and Cutterege. Basically the second one is suction and scraping the lining of the uterus clean because there isn't much tissue that is substantial before 10 weeks. The first they have to physically "go in and pull everything out" is how my OB put it. It depends on your situation but even at 14 weeks (when my son stopped growing) they would have done a D&E for me because after 12 the baby starts developing bones and such. She tried to be sensitive but there is no good way to put any of that. Also, in that case, you won't be allowed to see the baby as it will not be... intact. I ended up having to have a D&C anyway but my son was born first and I got to say goodbye. It was a traumatic experience but I don't think I'd have been able to forgive myself if I hadn't gone through giving birth to him. But do whatever is right for you.

Also, I had a cesarean with my first child. I gave birth to Silver without problem. They weren't even worried about it. Did you have the bikini line scar or the vertical. If you have one that runs along your pubic bone behind your bikini line, it's usually safe to have a VBAC. It's the other kind that are dangerous. And they almost never do those unless you have serious complications that makes it imparative to get the baby out quickly. Perhaps TMI but I had blood clots that were bigger than Silver was. I didn't even realize I had given birth at first. You can't imagine how tiny they are at this age.
