I’m currently 23 weeks (5 months) along, but early on my obgyn told me I would be induced at 38 weeks because of my diabetes. The more I read, the more I realize that diabetic inductions frequently turn into C-sections, which I want to avoid if at all possible. Baby boy looked great at the 20 week ultrasound, and as of a couple weeks ago my A1C was 4.9 (has been between 4.9 and 6 during entire pregnancy).
I want VERY much to be allowed to go into natural labor, and wonder if the typical higher risks of going past 38/39 weeks are more of a non–issue because of where my numbers are? Obviously, I have a little ways to go and things can happen between now and full-term, but I just want to hear from anybody out there who may have gone the natural route, without (or with very minimal) interventions?
