Yesterday morning I woke up to some slight spotting and minor cramping. The hubs was convinced I was going into labor. I however did not think that was the case. In fact I suspected that we had a breeched baby on our hands!
So when I went in to my drs appt this morning I was anxious to see what they had to say. They couldn't fully confirm the position she was in by feeling her so they bought in an ultrasound machine. And my suspicions were confirmed. Baby girl is breech. Her head is in my rib cage. Perfect
So now I have to make an appt with labor and delivery for sometime this week. I will go in, get an iv full of meds that will relax my uterus and they will attempt to manually move her into the correct position. If they can not do that I won a c- section.
I have mixed emotions about this news. I always used to joke I'd rather have a c-section since it seemed easier than labor. That was until I went on the labor and delivery tour and saw the or room. Terrifying! Plus I don't like the thought of having my arms strapped down nor the fact that I can't hold lovebug until I'm all sewed up and stuff. But I also want to deliver her in the best way possible, which ensures the health and safety of her and I so at this point whatever the dr says goes.
I did tell the hubby he better get off work and come with me when they manually move her. Iv's are on of my biggest fears so I def will need him for moral support. Plus I hear when they try and move babies it hurts big time!
So now it's just a waiting game. Has anyone had to have their babies manually flipped. How bad is it? What about a c section. Any advice or comments you want to share in regards to those.
Tomorrow I will post my 36 week update and later this week I will share pictures of the finished nursery
