So since my 20 weeks scan, my baby boy has been measuring quite large. You can visibly see him in my belly when I lay down as well so the doctors I’ve been saying the scans are probably fairly accurate. I’m getting ultrasounds every two weeks to keep an eye on his growth and his last estimated weight was about 9lbs at 34 weeks. I’m almost 36 weeks and I’m very nervous to see how large he’s estimated to be.
I’ve been seeing two separate doctors, one of them is a specialist because I was diagnosed with minor GD and has been diet controlled. My main OB has been telling me she highly doubts I’ll be able to deliver vaginally because of my sons massive size. I still have yet to talk to the specialist doctor (I see her next week) about this matter but I have a feeling she is going to say the same thing. I’m not saying that having a c section will make me less of a mother, but I really wanted to experience childbirth naturally for my first born baby and I don’t know if I’m even going to get the chance 😔 in the end I know it all comes down to my sons health and well being and my health as well, but I can’t help but feel like something is being taken away from me.
Has anyone experienced something similar? I just want to come to terms with the fact I may not have a chance to even try to deliver naturally 😔
