"I just had my second baby at 38, he is great and so am I. I would just say to aim for a 6.0 A1C and you should be golden. Make sure you have a great high risk OB, who really stays on you and your sugars. Heidi"

"I had my son via c-section at 38 weeks, (just 10 weeks ago) and all went well. I had a previous Doctor that wanted to do a amnio at 37 weeks then proceed with a c-section the next day if lungs were ok. I switched Doctors at 32 weeks, because I was…"

"Its a mistake. There is no need, plus why would she have you drink a glass of sugar. Obviously, say something and don't bother taking the test."

"That is super odd about Kaiser's policy. If it makes you feel any better, since I was rushed to a different hospital for my twins' birth, I had a different doc do my c-section and he ended up being great. Still, what an odd policy! Keep in…"

That is super odd about Kaiser's policy. If it makes you feel any better, since I was rushed to a different hospital for my twins' birth, I had a different doc do my c-section and he ended up being great. Still, what an odd policy! Keep in touch and I hope everything continues to go well! :-)

Hi Heidi! How is your pregnancy going so far? I had a c-section with both of my deliveries. With my daughter, I had a c-section 10 days before my due date because my blood pressure was starting to go up and via ultrasound, she looked like she was close to 9 pounds (she was 8 lbs 13 ounces!) and the docs tend to do c-sections here if there's any doubt at all about the baby or mom's health. With the twins, I very quickly developed severe pre-eclampsia at 34 1/2 weeks and was rushed to a big hospital about an hour away where I had an emergency c-section under general anesthesia. NOT fun...that delivery felt very "medical" in nature but my daughter's delivery was actually really beautiful... I remember every detail and I got to nurse her right away. :-) BTW, my twins ended up being 100% healthy and ready to be born! They didn't need oxygen, glucose, etc. and are now big, happy, normal 2 1/2 month olds! :-)

Hi Heidi, thanks so much for your comment on my blog!! I don't know why I am struggling so much with this decision! I had heard the forceps could be a little rough for the baby, but my doc seemed to think that if it is done correctly, there shouldn't be any issues at all... but how can you ENSURE it is "done correctly"!! Spoke with her today and since baby girl isn't making a move to go anywhere fast, I am sure c-section is what we will go with!!
