Sometimes they do.. I was told in the c section with my older son that he was simply to big to fit and in my birth report it says that diffrence between mothers hips and babys size are a factor in the c section
He was 9 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches and his head cirumfrence was 15 inches.
I read a study ( icelandic one, im from iceland) that in vbac there is more risk of complication if the baby is bigger than 4500gr ( 9 lbs 15 oz).
That is one reason that i did not atempt VBAC with my younger son since i had an ultrasound to find out how big he was at 38 w and the ultrasound said 10 lbs 6 oz, so the doctor said she just could simply not reccomend inducing me since nothing was happening and the baby was this big so i had a repeat c section at 38w 5 days.
Now we are TTC and i have read a lot more and i am going to attempt VBAC and just crossing my fingers that the baby will not be to big!
