I was diagnosed with GD at 30 weeks, and have been completely diet controlled. I had an u/s at 38 weeks to check on the baby's growth and she is measuring at over 9 lbs. I know the accuracy of the weight is approximate. But having GD and having a larger baby my risk for her having shoulder dystocia has gone up to 20-30%. I am still not dilated and the doctor was going to induce the day before my due date anyway. The c-section is scheduled 3 days before my due date, and I'm now struggling with our decision to go forward with a section. I really want to have a vaginal delivery, and I feel like I may be making the wrong decision as there is still a great possibility that she won't have shoulder dystocia or even be as large as they are estimating. But coupled with the fact that there is no change in my cervix and the baby was lower at my last appt and now has moved back into a "floating" position, I just don't know what the right way to go here is. My dr. didn't push me one way or the other, she just gave me the options. I've been thinking of this most of the night and now I cannot sleep. There are so many more complications with a csection that may not even end up being warranted when it comes time. Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks for letting me vent a bit.
