im just looking for some info about previous shoulder dystocia and subsequent births....
DD1 - natural birth ob shocked said I must have terrific stomach muscles as she thought bub was around 6pd, she was 8pd 2oz so not huge was told would probably not be able to have a bigger bub as she was stuck for a while during pushing.
DD2 - 8pd 9oz born at 38.5weeks and shoulder dystocia freed with mcroberts and ob pulling her out (suspected broken collar bone - never X-rayed) was breech until 37 weeks when I had her turned via ecv (that or same day csection due to pre term labour in small country hospital)
This time I'm only 16 weeks but have just found out we are having a boy this scares me as the smallest boy born in the last 3 generations in my family was 9pd 15oz! The last boy born was 10pd 8oz therefore I'm just wanting a heads up on any options people may have had after a previous shoulder dystocia I don't see my ob again til 7/2 so ages away!
