    hello
    So I’m being induced at 38 weeks on Thursday it’s my 3 rd baby my youngest is 18 months I’m type one ....
    So due to higher sugars which Iv never had previous with my other 2 he was predicted 8 lb at 36 weeks
    Anyways I have a few worries if anyone has any answers....
    1. Will baby go straight to scbu if blood sugars are low ( Iv been told low is below 2.6) or will they stay with me and try to manage them there and scbu if no improvement ?
    2. Bigger baby’s has anyone not ended up with emergency c section of baby was over 8/9 lb ? If so did u have bad tearing and did u need episiotomy due to shoulders ?

    Thankyou xx

    Hi @Tilly_S, We do not know your entire medical situation nor can advise. You really need to asking your doctors and nurses about what may happen.
    Best Wishes for an uneventful and good labour and a beautiful babe !
