Hi guys I'm hoping you can help me out with experiences or thought on this!
I'm currently 32 weeks and wanting to Have a social induction at 37-38 weeks, I have 2 midwifes one understands my needs and major anxiety, the other tells me it will be fine you can do it blah blah blah irritates me! Lol
So here's the reasoning my first born was induces at 37+4 weeks and was posterior she moved during labour they think she also got stuck as my pelvic bone is really low and they said its hard for a decent sized baby to pass under it my labour continued and she was not coming down she was stuck I ended up having to be fully cut and she delivered by forceps and had issues breastfeeding and still have scars near her eye and nose
From the forceps!! (Poor girl) It was horrific scary and 1 click away from an emergency c section and something I DONT want to go through again especially if this baby is bigger so I want to get bub out when it's safe for bub and on the smaller side so I can have a natural labour, as my hubby can't take time off as he runs his own business and my mum is on a cruise and I can't have a c section and deal with recovery alone with a 2 year old and a newborn! do you think I'm asking to much?? To much stress!!

ONe thing i will say...is that if you go into labour naturally...your less likely to need intervention.
Often, it is not about the size of the baby as much as it is about your body being ready and all the right chemicals being released by your brain.
When they induce you...the natural response is not always there and it does make for a harder labour.
Have you looked into some natural things you can do to help your body prepare? Red Rasberry tea and perenial massage and breathing exercises etc

I have looked into it I have a plan in place if they won't look at assisting me early, im just so anxious and stressed about going full term or over with the size bub will be considering my daughter was 8.5 at 37 weeks... I really don't want to go through what I went through last delivery.
I don't know how to go about it, I don't want to be cut as I have never been the same down there since then it's always so sensitive due to the scar tissue and I would hate to make it worse it would be nice If the made it an easy process lol!

Your best chances of avoiding a CS is to avoid an induction. 37 weeks is early for an induction and (I'm no expert) but I would imagine it would increase the chances of an emergency CS. Recovery time is generally faster when labour has been spontaneous. I'm not going to be popular for saying this but the trauma you and your DD endured may have been caused by the induction. She might not have been ready to come out yet.
Best of luck in getting what you want though.
ETA: I've just read your last post. I had a 3rd degree tear with my DS (induced, epidural, laying on back to give birth which is the worst position, vacuum delivery). I didn't want to risk another tear and possible incontinence and pain for the rest of my life so I needed to have an active labour and give birth in what ever position felt right at the time. I did get a 2nd degree tear with DD but she did come out very quick.

Yer she was induced for medical reasons she it was intense I don't think she ever wanted to come out lol! I would think our trauma was most likely cause she was induced and not ready to come out, I suppose it's one of those things that you cant plan but a c section is really not an option when I need to be a full time mum to an active toddler and and a new born by my self while my husband works I'm sure many people do it but I just feel I wouldn't cope with it alone.. I don't know I have a sizing scan on Friday so I will see what the size of bub is looking like then and see what path the doc and midwife think will prevent what happened last time

I agree with Bec- induction normally increases your chances of a posterior baby, a baby in a generally unfavourable position and interventions such as forceps, vacuums and CS. If you want to avoid all of this, IOL is not the way to go.
