That sounds very reasonable Allie. Such a hard choice! I hope you have an easier delivery this time around, whichever you choose.

I guess this is the plus of cloth diapers I just have a big box of them from DD, washed and ready to go. The minus is the laundry when she’s born, haha.

Curious - I have cloth diapers from DS too and hope to use them again. Just the first weeks, I think, I will be happy the have the convenience of disposable. I ordered some NB diapers last night so they will be here in two days. Which cloth diapers do you use?

Allie - I have not commented on your decision that you have to make, because it would be so hard for me to make that decision myself. Personally I would always go for vaginally, BUT I did not experience a bad tear, so I can see that that is very scary. I have no idea if any of it makes any difference, but have you looked into positions during pushing that may help reduce the risk of tearing? I think if you knew that you wouldnít tear badly again, from what I read in your posts, you would go vaginally every time. I donít know how flexible your doctor is. Mine was ďyou can be on your back or your sideĒ and it bothered me for a long time as I had read the more vertical you are the less chance of tearing (I had only 2nd degree tear, but I was mad I tore at all, silly, I know) Also using a warm cloth during labor on your perineum is supposed to help, but you need someone to help with that.
Iím so sorry that there isnít an easy answer and I hope in a way baby will just make that decision for you and come on itís own and you will see how it goes in the moment.

I think I have a few of most the brands on the market, lol. My one size stash is mainly pockets and a few AIOs. In newborn I have lots of AIOs and some tiny covers and prefolds, then some slightly bigger pockets that worked well for when DD started sleeping a little longer at night. She wore the nb stash until she was 5 months old, she grew so slowly!

What about you?

I have only used the g diapers, but my friend gave me a big sack of cloth diapers that are the ones with all the snap buttons. Iíll have to figure out how to use them!

There are lots of great YouTube videos out there and I'm happy to answer any questions if you have them!

Thank you ladies. I really felt between a rock and a hard place today. I feel terrified but I kept my C-Section appointment. Baby is as big today as Alistair was when born and will be bigger of course in a week, much less two weeks, and it's plain from a medical perspective if I go over 39 weeks I am risking a lot regarding my vagina/rectum....so I kept the appointment. I just have to PRAY I go into labor on my own in the next 6 days!!

I wish I felt more peace about it but I didn't feel peace about cancelling either.

How is everyone doing today????

I think I need to pack more nappies in my hospital bag. I just grabbed a few of them but I'm not sure how many!

I completely understand being scared about having a major tear again allie. I think if I'd had a bad one I might opt for a c-section as well even though that scares me it's more predictable.

My friend at work who was 2 days behind me had her baby today! I kinda would like another week if possible, maybe the Tuesday would be nice
I'm trying to walk more to keep active as I feel like I'm spending all day and evening sitting on my ass.
I've had no more labour signs, just a bit of stomach ache but I think that was wind.

It’s really amazing how long everyone has managed to keep these babies in for!! How many babies do we have scheduled for the next week or so? A couple right?

Hopefully we’ll see some spontaneous labours too! (Aka, me!! )

Agreed! An acquaintance who had the same due date as me has a one month old right now! And on my May board last time we had babies born almost every day the second half of April. Iím shocked we havenít had any early babies!
