I had him for all my kids so far but this time he really has been different. Think I'll call him tomorrow with my concerns . I have my sugars pretty much in check they are just a tiny bit above normal, but managed well with diet . my biggest baby was 7.15 lbs not overly big.

I'm really uncomfortable with the idea too. It's not even the second c section that has me so crazy worried , it's the risks of complications for baby and myself and not being back on my feet as fast as I'd like I have a 20 month old that I want to be able to take care of.

I did squats to try and strengthen really loose painful ligaments, and the kneeling squats I was doing, has dilated me, 1 cm a week since week 36. It's been a week but I was 2 1/2 cm at my last apt. You can refuse an induction. I didn't know you could get one after a c-section.

My dr said that he wouldn't do an induction on anyone who had s previous c-section. The reason is because they worry about the uterus rupturing during regular labor, the last thing he wants is to increase that risk with an induced labor that yields stronger more frequent contractions. I was relieved. I had a really good Dr with my son. I still ended up with a repeat c-section anyway.

see this makes very little sense to me , he doesn't want to use the gel to soften the cervix due to the risk of a rip but wants to induce which i thought was just as dangerous for a rip as well. Really thinking of not getting induced this time . I know I may not be able to avoid the c section in the end , but it would be nice to make it to the 40 weeks . I know the last part of pregnancy sucks but it's nice to have that little extra me and baby time lol not ready to share him I guess :)

The pitocin caused a friend of mine to progress too fast she ended up with 3rd degree tears. I don't agree with inductions at all. I think they are unnecessary and cause the mother more grief than they are worth. I hated my c-sections but, I understood why they were necessary. My kidneys and liver were failing with my twins and I have a blood disorder that was agitated with my son. I always felt I could have given birth vaginally both times but, they are safe so I have to remember that now.

My doc said with the pit with A that if we even made it up to what docs consider min dosage that we would have to do a c-section (WBC was going up really high after my water was broken for over 24 hrs) but we did an hour on it and then we were good to go and she said if I didn't keep contracting it would be a c-section. She also wouldn't just let me lay around either though.
