Crappy appt !!!!!

Today's appt not what I was hoping to hear . This whole time I was thinking our plan was to make sure I had this baby about 38 weeks bc of my passed history with baby sz and almost dying with my first .
Let's me rewind a few weeks . At my 36 weeks appt with specialist for her growth check bc of my 2 placentas they measured her 4 different times just to be sure and she weighed 8 lbs 1oz and 2 weeks ahead. 36 weeks ob appt not soft or dilated , next ob appt I was able to be opened to 2 cm but she wasn't engaged .
Today's appt was disappointing , she still not engaged some how I went from 2 cm to 1 cm , not sure how hell that is possible, we talked he said he wasn't able to schedule to induce me until 39 weeks WTH happen to 38 weeks felt blindsided ? He said that maybe I should think about a C-section at 39 weeks , defiantly not what I wanted to hear ! He thinks she isn't engaging bc she may be too big .
The biggest baby I've ever had was 7lb 15 oz at 38 weeks. I don't get y knowing what has happened in my passed they still can't induce at 38 weeks but letting her get even bigger is really lessen my chances at a natural birth . I know she is big but I still wanted the chance at a natural birth . Idk y he changed from 38 weeks to now 39 weeks I'm really torn on how I feel.
I've been walking , bouncing on my big ball Its not helping I guess. He gave me until next week's appt to see where she is and if she still isn't engaged will defiantly be a c-section he said even if she is engaged he still recommendS to do the c-section bc of her sz . I've never had one makes me a little nervous bc I have had issue in the passed with the meds numbing me, and plus the recovery time I have 3 other children to take care of and idk how I'm going to do a longer recovery time. Plus cleaning and cooking , laundry.
I guess I feel like he has let me down to where I can't do a natural birth, he knew how big she was at 36 weeks! I'm really praying she is able to engage and come this week and fit just fine ! Sorry for the rant but needed to somewhere I really wanted to cry.
