Hi to all the bumps out there. I am a 37 years old, mum of one which is approaching to have her second baby in UK. I have been so anxious for the whole pregnancy, as in here, NHS treat pregnancy in a very weird way. considering that two scan in the whole pregnancy period is absolutely a joke, now i found out that even though i would love to have vaginal birth i have to wait 42 weeks before they can induce me if nothing happen in the weeks before. I have spent the last 3 weeks try to convince that i have already had this experience in my country where my little one was 42+6 and after 20 hours of labor i had to undergo to an emergency C section as she was too big and i didn't dilate. No only, after 20 hours my baby was already stuck in the uterus and to take her out doctor broke her shoulder. I don't want to have the same experience as i know already she is gonna be big, (1st of December, when i was in Italy i had a scan and the baby was already 1,700 grams when my due date is the 12th of february and everybody knows that in the last month they double the weight) i don;t understand why they can do a C section at 39 weeks but they cannot induce me in the same period and they have to wait 42 weeks. Can anyone help me in what do i need to say to doctor to let them induce me at 39+? i don;t want to go under C section in here as i know already i wouldn't be able to stand up or walk with the method they use to give you stitches. Please help me!
