I’m glad to be able to have a private blog where I can post what I want to and not worry etc.
I realized that with facebook’s privacy settings that my pictures aren’t only able to be seen by my friends, but by friends of friends if I tag them in it, then if their friend comments all of their friends can see the picture that they commented on…I don’t love that so much.
Call me paranoid and it would be an accurate accusation! But as a momma, I just gotta do what I can to protect my little ones! Plus…there sure is a lot of drama and other things on facebook that I simply would like to take a break from! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! We’ll see how long I last…I’m hoping at least a few months!
Well today I had another Dr’s appointment to see if my little lady is still breech. A lot was hanging on this appointment. If she flipped and was in the right position, then we would simply wait until my body went into labor naturally…since I have a very unfavorable cervix (as my dr says) I would most likely gone to my due date or after it. But if she was still breech then we would need to discuss other options. Which we did. Since I really, super duper do NOT want to have a c-section, we decided that at 38 weeks, we will try to flip her, my Dr. will NOT flip a baby unless he induces labor or a does a c-section right after, there are way too many risks to the unborn baby and he has heard of two babies within Utah Valley that were turned and the mom came back a few days later and the baby had no heartbeat. So that’s what he does, he’ll flip and then induce labor or if she doesn’t flip then he’ll do a c-section. Well I will be 38 weeks on THURSDAY. So tomorrow they will test her lungs and make sure they’re mature and if all systems are go I will either be in labor on Thursday, or I will have had a c-section and my baby girl will be here on Thursday. To say that I’m anxious or freaking out a little is the understatement of the year.
My reasoning for not wanting a c-section is fairly simple. I have a little man at home that will be waiting for me. He is going to be two soon and has NEVER been away from his momma longer than a few hours (and I’m OK with that, this hospital stay is going to kill me). Having a c-section I will have a LONG recovery time, not only will I be in the hospital extra times, when I come home my little man won’t have a mommy that can play with him, or lift him up to hug and comfort him, he will have to wait several weeks for that, and it kills me.
What also kills me are the people who have NEVER had a c-section playing it up like: well at least you can choose the due date…OR at least the baby’s head won’t look funny (and those are people who are “related” to me…). Are you kidding me?! I could possibly have a major abdominal surgery and you think I care about whether or not my baby has a pointy head? Or that I can choose the future due dates. Sigh…sorry about the mini freak out, like I said I’m a little anxious….
Either way, I’m SO glad that you are now following my blog, and I promise that I will post OFTEN! PLEASE feel free to COMMENT so that we can not only just stay in touch…but also so I won’t feel like I’m talking to thin air…So wish me luck on the amniocentesis test tomorrow, I’m quite freaked about the ganoramous needle that will be stuck into my stomach/uterus. Also, prayers are VERY appreciated!
Thanks for being my buddies!
