I've spent the last few weeks watching natural births on youtube to help prepare myself for a vaginal delivery, and I had just really started believing in my ability to try for drug free birth.
I'm doing shared care, and I had my 36+3 week appointment today at the hospital. Aside from the fact the Dr was more concerned the the student midwife was using too much gel on the doppler, he barely looked at me other than measuring my belly. As he was ushering myself and DH out the door he turned to me and says "your belly is measuring ahead, which means you have a big baby, and you'll most likely have a c-section" and shut the door.
With that, he completely undid all the work I've done to get myself to the point I worked so hard to get too.
I know it's silly, because I haven't been sent for any growth scans, and I know that they aren't always accurate anyway, but with still being at work (finishing at 38 weeks) and starting to get emotional and uncomfortable and being scared about being a first time mum, that one comment has just really made me doubt myself.
Sorry for the vent, whenever I talk to my dh or mum about it, they just give me a hug and say i'm having an irrational preggo moment.
