I am really hoping to avoid a c-section if I can.

    I just called and have an OB appt. at 11:30 today to discuss how she feels about vag. delivery, how risky it actually is, etc. I have been googling for the past 2 days straight, and I can't seem to find anything to tell me exactly what I want to know. It sounds like only 1 woman has ever given birth vaginally with a placenta lower than 2cm. I know that can't be true but it is hard finding the info.

    I'll post later what the OB says, my mw was saying if any OB would be willing to go vaginal it would probably be her. On the other hand, I don't want to try vaginal just for me so I can have my birth. This is a really legit reason for a c-section. A healthy baby and me being healthy is most important. That being said I am terrified of a c-section. Just have to wait and see.
    I hope you get positive news from the OB.

    But regardless, I like your honest, forthright approach. It's refreshing.

    About the c/s: if you do end up going this route, you have the benefit of being able to plan one. Which may not sound like much, but having some control over it really does help in making sure it's not the horrible birth experience you might imagine it to be. I wish I could say there's nothing to fear, but we all know what can go wrong. However, you could also have an experience like mine. I had zero complications afterwards and didn't even use pain meds once I left the hospital. In fact, I didn't have any once they took the IV out. I'll admit, I'm the poster child for c/s-happy OBs. You also get to request the type of incision and suturing for future pregnancies. Not that the doc will comply, but at least you can find out up front what he/she would normally do and see if that works for you. I sure hope you don't have to go the c/s route, but if you do, there are ways to minimize the negatives of unplanned ones.

    KUP on what the OB says.

    well, the OB didn't seem too concerned about the low placenta. She said it does NOT mean an automatic csection, and possibly the low placenta could be a "non-issue." We will just have to wait and see when I am in labor, if I am bleeding too much then it will be a csection. So I am satisfied with that, at least we get to see how things go.

    What I have been pretty sad about today is that dd won't be able to be there, she was so looking forward it, and I wish she could be there, maybe depending on if my IL are here, they could bring her up, not sure about hospital policies and such, but I am guessing they won't allow it.

    Also now I am not sure what to do about my mw. I already paid my portion of her fee, which is half of the total fee and she would normally bill insurance for the rest. I sent her an email last night asking her what usually happens in that situation, when someone has to transfer care. She said she would normally go with us to the hospital if we wanted and basically turn into my doula. Come to my house when I was in labor, etc. That is nice and all, but there is a good chance I could start bleeding right away and have to get a c section. But it could be nice to have a doula, but now I am also going to have to pay my deductible, plus, 20% of the hospital bill, plus 20% of the doctors fee. So I need to decide if I want a doula or if I want a partial refund, but I am not sure how much that would even be, nothing is super clear in the paperwork. Too many things to think about, sigh...

    I hope you get the $ issues sorted out...the last thing you need is financial stress. I would imagine that your DD will be able to spend time in your postpartum room with you. I think that's pretty common. Also, I know that my hospital allows children (as long as they are not ill) in the delivery room as long as there's an adult to watch them and take them out of the room in an emergency situation or if they misbehave.

    That is a whole other issue, DH never seems to want to talk about except to shoot down my ideas, at least it seems that way. I think I am going to try pushing the name Paige on him, since I really like that one. Not sure of a good middle name to go with it though.

    Hmmm...I think Paige would sound nice with a three syllable middle name.

    Funny, I was thinking Paige Olivia. I agree about the 3 syllable thing. I really like the name Paige, it's on my girl name list if I ever have a girl.

    I think you are right about the 3 syllable thing, off to look up names...

    Welcome! I'm a little late. How could I have missed so many Jan mom's having birth lodges?? I feel like such a flake. I'm glad that the OB feels you might still be able to have a vaginal birth. I'm still sad to hear that you can't have the homebirth you wanted.
