My DD has a date booked for her induction the week after next. Her midwife thought the baby was in the breach position so sent her for a positioning scan yesterday just to be sure. DD knew that if it was confirmed as breach she would be offered a c-section - she didn't want anyone to try turning the baby because she is very small and it would almost certainly have been very painful.
It turned out that it's not breach after all, although the head doesn't appear to be engaged yet. At first DD seemed relieved.
However, today she visited a friend who is expecting her second child, and naturally DD was telling her about all of this. The 'friend' then went on to tell DD, in glorious technicolour, all about the problems she had with being induced with her first baby - how it didn't seem to work, so they removed the pessary, then later re-administered it (same one), then she had some sort of allergic reaction and swelled up badly, and ended up having an emergency c-section.
So now my DD is scared witless and saying she thinks she'd rather have a c-section and do I think she would be able to request one this late.
Why oh why couldn't this silly woman have just kept her horror stories to herself?
