Upset ๐Ÿ˜”


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 Iโ€™ve been saying the scans are probably fairly accurate. Iโ€™m getting ultrasounds every two weeks to keep an eye on his growth and his last estimated weight was about 9lbs at 34 weeks. Iโ€™m almost 36 weeks and Iโ€™m very nervous to see how large heโ€™s estimated to be.

Iโ€™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 Iโ€™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. Iโ€™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 donโ€™t know if Iโ€™m even going to get the chance ๐Ÿ˜” in the end I know it all comes down to my sons health and well being and my health as well, but I canโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜”
