Witney Carson is opening up about her birth plan, as she’s just months away from welcoming her baby boy into the world.
The 27-year-old Dancing With The Stars revealed that after BFF Lindsay Arnold went through one, she’s trying to avoid a C-section.
“The baby is head-down, which definitely puts things into perspective,” Witney told her fans on Instagram Stories before going more in depth to her plan. “[I’m] excited and terrified all at the same time.”
“My birth plan is to get induced, but obviously things change so I’m just kind of gonna go with the flow,” Witney continued. “But as of right now, that’s where we’re at so I’m just gonna try and get through this home stretch.”
Witney also mentioned that her husband, Carson McAllister, was “born three weeks early and at nine pounds, so he was a really big boy and I just don’t want the risk of having a C-section. I asked my doctor about that and he said the best way is to be induced. He said there’s been a lot of studies about how they’ve had less c-sections with women who were induced versus women who waited until full-term — so that’s kind of what I’m basing my decision off of.”
“Obviously, it’s really early still, and I’m gonna try and monitor how big he’s getting,” she added. “Hopefully, we get an ultrasound at 36 weeks and get a better idea of how big he’s actually gonna be.”
Over the weekend, Witney held a socially-distanced baby shower, in which Lindsay came to.
Witney and Carson announced they were expecting in July.
