Behind a successful woman is a tribe of other successful women, who have her back.
Again, this proves me right.
I finally gave birth to our fifth boy through Cesarean Section last July 19. And though we’ve anticipated his coming, we were somehow left off guard about his unusual arrival.
A mother’s advice
Last Tuesday, July 18, I visited my OB Gyne for my hopefully last pre-natal check-up. As per our last conversation a week after that, she advised that we will wait until my 42nd week to induce labor. I gave birth to my four other boys via normal delivery so we were hoping for the same procedure with my fifth. To make sure we are on the right track, she requested that I undergo an ultrasound to check on the baby’s weight among other things.
Upon seeing the results of my ultrasound, she suggested that we do it via Cesarean Section as the baby’s weight is way too big for a normal delivery. I might experience rapture if we still opt for the original plan. Likewise, it may jeopardize my and the baby’s health and well-being.
