It's been a few years since I have been on here, I got so fed up of the constant "am I pregnant" posts that I decided to leave.
Anyway I am currently 34+3 with baby number 2 and found out several weeks ago I have gestational diabetes 😣. Didn't have it with my first. I have been told I will need to be induced as baby is massive! The problem is, having done my own research I feel a c section would be a much safer option for baby and me.. I know it is unlikely they will allow it unless they feel it is the best option and it's really making me anxious. I am going to make it clear at my next consultant appointment that there is to be NO forceps or suction anywhere near me but I'm now considering refusing induction full stop? Does anyone know if they would then do a section or would they wait for natural labour? The latter isn't really an option as it could have severe consequences.
Any and all ideas/suggestions welcome
Thanks in advance
