For FTM who had or are having a C-section, what was the doctor's reasoning?
i had an emerg c with my first as he wasn't descending and i wasn't dilating enough. then with DS2 i was advised it would be best just because of my body shape. i have very narrow hips and DS1's head was stuck and had to have forceps pull him out during the csection.
it was ultimately my choice to have the second c but the risks outweighed the benefits and i didn't feel the need to push vaginally so it was a no brainer for us!

With my first, the 'official' and final reason was because after being induced and in labor for close to fifteen hours, I'd somehow gotten a fever and that led to the assumption that I had an infection. Shortly before the fever, I was already being told to consider it because she'd already gotten to where there was no progress, wasn't dilating or anything past a point, but then the fever/infection cropped up, and, yeah, out she came.
rockyrollgirl:50 hours of labor and she just wasn't dropping. My water broke and they did not want to risk infection. They didn't give me any specific reason why she wouldn't drop.
This almost exactly, except my (induced) labor was 48 hours. With my second, he had a flat heart rate and was in distress so I had an emergency c-section.
