One of the nurses at the hospital where I work asked when I was due last week. I told her the 11th but the C was set for the 3rd. She nodded and asked the usual, "Repeat?" Yeah, due to my BP and the fact that I'd have to go to downtown Milwaukee for VBAC. She agreed that that wasn't the best idea that time of year. I'm now ready to get back to work when I hear behind me, "So you're not even going to try the normal way?" I didn't realize that the most opinionated staff member was behind me. "Nope." Knowing that it wasn't worth explaining to her.
An hour later I'm out on the floor again and she is arguing with someone about my choice for a repeat C! One, why is it her problem at all? And two, I'm all for VBAC. I even contemplated it seriously, but it just isn't in the hand I was dealt. I'm not going to stress over what won't be, you know? This nurse just drives me nuts. She has an opinion about everything, and Heaven help the person who disagrees with her.
