I've got so used to having little on wriggling inside of me that I'm going to miss my bump.im excited and nervous about the whole thing. I'm being induced early due to the fact that I have a macrasomic baby, ie baby has grown very large due to gestational diabetes, which was not discovered until week 36. I will have a try at delivering my baby vaginaly. But I'm only five foot tall and baby will be 4kg by Wednesday. I still have fears of shoulder dystocia. And possible asphyxia. But have come to a compromise with the consultant, I will try for a few hours, but if its not progressing then I will have a c section. It's more likely that I end up in theatre anyway. And I keep wondering if I've done the right thing. Should I have just gone and asked for a c section? I'm trying not to worry as I know that I'll be closely monitored all throughout. I'm such a mixed bag of emotions right now all I want is my baby safely in my arms, it's felt like I've been pregnant forever, and now the day is almost here it feels so odd.
