My SIL was talking today about her previous pregnancy (she is pregnant again and due in 3 weeks) she said that she carried her baby really high and her daughter got "caught in her ribs" and that is why she had to have a c-section. I just kept thinking, there is a uterus and placenta between you and your ribs, not to mention fluid, there is no way that your baby got caught on your ribs. Please tell me I am not dumb, and that this is not a valid reason to have a c-section.

Not that I'm a professional, but I've never heard of it before. For what it's worth.

No way. It could be she misunderstood, or the doctor tried to tell her something in layman's terms and ended up being more confusing. I guarantee you her surgical report doesn't say "caught in ribs." My best guess would be failure to descend.

Never heard of it, and the baby can't get caught in the ribs. It might be failure to decend or dialate, but even that isn't always a reason for a c-section because who decides how much time the baby/body needed? She can request her papers from the office at the hospital and see what it says. The Doctor can't put a BS reason on it like caught in the ribs since that doesn't happen.

I think my SIL just likes drama so she is willing to go with whatever measure will get her the most drama, not caring what the reason was, or just making up her own reason.

Maybe she was just looking for a reason to justify having a c-section. Clearly not a good reason, or one that's even possible....but it sounds like she was grasping at straws to make it sound medically necessary!

My only thought would be a really high floating baby that never descended in time for an induction or picked out date or something. Not a true medical emergency that caused a need for a c/s.

Doesn't really sound like it, but it might just be how doc explained it to her.

Some babies can drop while you're even in labor.

To me it sounds like the baby failed to descend. Which in turn caused her to have a c-section.
Just because it happened with her last pregnancy, doesn't mean it will happen with this one.

That's a funny one.

she better be careful if she uses tampons - imagine one of those 'stuck to her ribs'. DOes she eat peanut butter too often during pregnancy?
Sorry. I'm bad. I agree with the others though - sounds like the baby didn't descend as fast as the doc wanted.
