C-section scheduled

At my 38 week appointment on Thursday, baby still hadnt moved out of the breech position. In fact, she had her butt down in my pelvic area, rather than her feet; so she's really breech!! Since I've known for a few weeks that this could be a possibility, I've been able to come to terms with having to have the surgery. I'm excited now that I know the exact day that I'll be meeting our sweet little baby! I'll be going in at 6 on Wednesday, April 11, and surgery is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. My Dr. said that I shouldnt need staples, just the dissolvable stitches, so that's pretty awesome!! I'll be going home sometime on Friday.

So of course, now that LO knows she's going to be evicted, I've started having contractions that will be frequent for a little bit, then get really irregular and then finally fade out. The real rough contractions started yesterday morning and were kind of scary!

Michelle, PsycheGal, will be keeping ya'll updated on me, and depending on how I feel and how we adjust, I'll be on to give my simple birth story and to share pictures!

There's still time for LO to turn so if you want, have them check one more time before surgery. I am glad you have had a chance to come to peace with it though, and I hope everything is smooth and uneventful. And very exciting that you know when you will meet LO!!

That's great about the stitches... from one who has had both, the stitches were much less painful!!

I was wondering how you were! Sorry that she is still breech but I agree, at least youknow the exact day you'll be meeting her. I'm glad you're okay with having a c/s. But yay you get to meet her next week!

Ariel,I will definitely be asking on Wednesday morning for them to check to see if a miracle has occurred! Lol

Katie, I have just been so lazy the past two days and haven't wanted to get on the computer. I finally decided I'd better let everyone know what was going on! Lol

Exciting! Though I hope to never need a c-section, I must admit I'm jealous of those who know their delivery dates in advance!! Just a few more days for you now!!

So sorry your LO is still breech. I'm glad you'll have them check positioning regardless before the do the c/s. Babies have been known to flip right till the end. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. It is nice to have a date though and know what to expect so you can be mentally prepared. How exciting to be meeting your LO soon!

That is pretty much exactly what happened with my DD. She was breech and refused to budge, so I'm very familiar with your story at this point! Good luck on Wednesday and I'll look forward to 'hearing' your birth story and seeing pics of your baby girl!

Thanks Anna! I hope you're doing well!

I've been having contractions that will be 2 minutes apart, lasting about a minute, for 10 or 15 minutes, then they'll go away completely for hours. Don't know what my body's doing!

That's crummy, but sounds like it's the safest option for the two of you. Good luck and can't wait for you to meet your little girl Smile
