    Hi ladies

    The consultant has said that the baby isn't that big (well not as big as son) and that he's happy for me to carry on without being induced.

    We discuss the options for the birth and he's decided that I have to go back in 2 weeks for a membrane sweep. He's hoping that will start my labour off and once in labour they'll do 1 cut which he says will prevent 3rd degree tears.

    He says I don't have to have a C-section unless an emergency.

    I'm much happier with this option.

    Obviously if labour starts before then they have to do the 1 cut.
