I go for two more ultrasounds but baby is already ahead of where DS was at this point and he wasn't able to progress at 9lbs 11 ounces. 4 days of contractions with no progress last time and the fact that all signs are pointing to same size or bigger baby...All 6 of the doctors agreed that the best course is c-section and not to push for a vbac in my case. It also is for their sake too due to risk of the baby getting stuck if this one were able to actually enter the birth canal and nerve damage. (Big fear of mine because of a family friend who has no use of his left arm due to being stuck and needing a vaccuum to enter the world)
My friends daugher got stuck in the canal for awhile as well stopped breathing and it is a miracle she is alive with no brain damage. She had major nerve damage and has had 3 surgeries so far at age 3.5 and ots of therapy to start to have movement in her arm. Crazy I have never heard of anyone else that this has happened to.
