Had my 35 weeks appt today. My bp was still a bit up so she's starting me on a low dose of meds. Urine is ok, she's not too concerned since I did this with Simon and no pe.
However, i was talking about how while I laboured with Simon I had horrible right hip pain, and he was face up, and then he ended up with a brachial plexus injury (shoulder) on his left side. My theory is that his shoulder was stuck or pressing down on my hip hence my pain and his injury. The pain stopped when the OB turned him over inside of me, and there was no resistence, he turned fine.
So this baby is measuring a little bigger than ds according to the u/s (i know, they are not accurate), but she was saying that my rising bp in combination with what happened with Simon she thinks that inducing at 38 weeks is best so that incase he was "stuck" that this baby isnt even bigger and at an increased risk of that. Right now the baby is still face up and in the exact same position as Simon. She admitted that she cant say for sure that is how he got the injury and that sometimes these injuries happen and they never know why. Thankfully Simon is totally fine now, but it was stressful to go through that and it made my labour sooooooo painful!
I'm already thinking I will not let her induce at 38 weeks especially if my cervix is the same as it was for Simon (closed), but I am also worried about what she's saying. She is not being pushy, just saying what she feels. She would wait if I wanted. And of course I would induce if anything was life threatening/dangerous. But right now they are just maybes.
What do you ladies think????
