I'm 5 cm. and 75% effaced. I've been making slow progress over the past week but baby has stayed at -2 station without moving.
I'm a little over 38 weeks and this is my first baby.
My doctor is a bit concerned that baby isn't moving down. He is afraid that she will have this problem up to delivery and may end up getting stuck in the birth canal in a bad position or that the cord will come out before baby and we will need to do an emergency c-section..yet he wanted to break my water tonight...
I elected not to have my water broken because I want to see if baby will naturally move down. My doctor seems to think she won't change though..
anyone else experience this? did you baby move down by his/herself?
I'm willing to go to 42 weeks if it means baby will get into the right position herself and reduce the chance of c-section or un-necessary intervention.
