I had my 36 week appointment today and my cervix is still "high and hard". She also is scheudling me for my induction next Thursday the 8th. She said that the high risk specialist does not want me to go past 37 weeks if I am to try an induction because of the baby's shoulders being too big. She said that the measurements were in the 98th percentile and baby may not fit through the pelvis even if the induction is successful. I AM REALLY NERVOUS.
My concerns or questions I have from you ladies is...
Would you choose to try for an induction even if;
- the chance of it being successful is only 20%?
- The chance of her shoulders being too big is fairly high (could get stuck or have damage if they can't get her out in time)
- her being only 37 weeks gives her a higher chance for jaundice and latching issues?
Or would you be more inclined to wait until 39 weeks and just scheudle a c-section?
