I'm due on the 27th, but she says he is so big and my body isnt really doing what it needs to to help him along, so she set up an induction.
I'm not happy about this at all. I wanted a natural birth experence. Both my sisters got set up or an induction and both ended up walking out with a C Section- I guess for me, I can't help but think that there doctors gave up on them (because nothing was wrong with babies) and just said "fuck it, I want to be home for American Idol" and just C Sectioned for a faster day-
I'm no doctor, so I don't know what signs to look for when a C-section is NEEDED, and not just the "easy way out"
GURR, Im upset if you can't tell, and I just wan to feel like its gonna be ok.

A lot of women have gone through this and come out on the other side~ but ANGRY! They want to help others avoid unnecessary cesareans like theirs was.
I can offer some info:
A great clip on YouTube from ICAN about CPD here.

"what's most important of all is a healthy pregnancy, healthy mommy and healthy baby however baby is born"
It is really important to not have resentment, though, too. (Especially if anything happened because of an unnecesary cesarean.)
If someone had told me before (easily!) naturally birthing my 10-pounder (without even a tear) that she would be so big then I might have bad fears. But I had no idea-- only faith in my body to do what it is supposed to do.
The OP can ask more questions to flesh out this Big Baby theory. She can get other opinions, too. If you ask a surgeon what to do they might be likely to say, "surgery." If you ask a midwife she might say, "get off the bad & wriggle, no biggie!"
