Yeah, we haven't discussed when it would be done and all of that, but I am assuming it would be right around induction time as she said they usually don't do it until 37 weeks and that's when I'd be delivering anyway. I really don't think they'd do a version and an amnio in one hit (or even week) as that is a lot of stress on your body but we'll see. Here's to hoping he'll just flip for me.
Anyone else deal with their older kids getting really clingy and needy soon before baby arrives? DD has just been getting worse. She's always had some separation/anxiety issues about leaving me as I'm her primary caregiver for 99% of things but it's been nuts lately. I try to include her in as much baby stuff as I can and be positive about her being the big sister while still focusing attention on her that has nothing to do with the baby. She was all about the newborn at a Halloween party the other weekend so here's to hoping she'll take to her brother well.
I agree... it makes no sense in my mind to do a version until right before delivery... what if they flip back, seems crazy to me... but I am no OB-GYN.
I was 18 when I had DD, I had no idea about versions or the sort when my OB discussed it. I went along, figuring she knew best.
Then again, she also tried to induce me at 38 weeks because she was going on vacation. DD came on her own (my water broke at home but I was induced because my body wasn't actually going into labor on it's own and I had about 8 hours left to infection risk) and the on call OB delivered her. He actually ended up being awesome. Probably way more than my actual OB.
Sorry for you ladies who have breech babies right now. Hopefully they will flip in time.
I don't worry about it much because I'm having a c/s regardless. I don't think I've ever had a breech baby though, so I'm thankful for that.
I just got home from parent-teacher conferences. With those and the time change, I'm beat! I'm looking forward to the next two days going quickly and spending Friday at home with my monkeys. Although, right now Addison is pushing all the wrong buttons. This time change has been hard on her and she's exhausted. She gets ubber cranky when she's exhausted and she's picking fights with Lauryn. I've only been home for 20 minutes and feel like I've been home for hours I'm going to eat and go to bed!
I have to have caffeine just to function. So exhausted. Just need to get through the next 10 days and I will have a normal working woman's schedule. I might decide to bow out of hospital duties at that point. I can barely walk the hospital. God forbid there is no chair in the room for me to sit on while I talk with my patients... This morning my start time isn't until 10am due to discharging all my patients yesterday, so just when I think I am at wit's end, something works out.
Tiffany--I hope you can make it through! GL!
I just found out this morning that the daughter of an old friend who has been battling cancer for the past 3 years (i think), passed away this morning. I have mixed emotions--sadness and relief. She was the same age as one of my girls. Makes me hold them a little bit tighter today.
Wow Lisa god bless her soul smh! Gone too soon . I hate cancer is sooo ughhh!!!
AFM - im going to have to stay at work a little longer than expected because of the way the maternity leave works at my job so instead of of Dec 14 i will take it day by day ! I feel fine just tired here and there with minor aches ! Andddd we are being hit with another storm... We have SNOWWWW!!! At least its now and not next week during my baby shower!
How are you ladies doing today ?
Thank you Tasha!
I was typing up my December calendar and I realized that my due date is exactly 3 weeks after our anniversary (the 18th), 2 weeks after Christmas and 1 week after new Years day! CRAZY! I thought it was 3 weeks after Christmas. Yikes!
Losing kids is the hardest thing. I really can't imagine. I think one of the reasons we decided to have the twins is because I was so afraid of losing Luke, and I know that is crazy. Of course that isn't the only reason. I know one child cannot replace another, especially now as my child is older.
All of our due dates will be upon us before we know it.
Life's gonna get wild.
Tiffany, I have several cousins who have twins and 2 of them were talking on FB about their experiences...Best of luck to you!
OT...I cannot imagine losing a child! It is one of my worst fears!
I had a dr. appt. today. Everything looks good. Babies head is down. Heartbeat was slower than usual, but I think she was sleeping or something. Midwife wasn't worried, and she moves a lot, so I'm not either. I also asked about heartburn meds--its really killing me! She told me I could take zantac twice a day! Hooray! I can't wait to sleep well...instead of waking up at night with heartburn and not sleeping because of it!
