C-section moved to THIS Friday.. the 13th *GULP*


So basically.. I have been wanting a vbac so very badly. Working my butt off this pregnancy in order to ensure it.. At my appointment today my dr basically said we are moving the c-section forward end of story, (was originally scheduled for May 23rd at 41 weeks) But because today I've lost more weight (haven't gained in 4+ weeks) baby's weight is stagnate and her movements have decreased and her heartrate today showed mild decels (nst for decreased movements) I was bumped to this Friday. I will have a sweep done the day before as a last ditch effort but none before that since I'm GBS+ my dr won't do it before the day before my surgery and even then doesn't want to even do that!! I want baby here safely obviously and at the end of the day I know that's all that matters, but I can't help but feel sad over my loss of a vbac and a rcs. I know once I hold her it won't matter but .. for now I'm trying to wrap my head around it!!!

Oh pink I'm so sorry to hear that I know how hard u have been trying...You know everythin happens for a reason, And maybe it will be better for u And baba at the end of the day. I have always wanted a natural birth, but somethin tells me I have a great chance of it ending in a section. I know how bummed out u must feel. But as u said once baba is in your arms u will def forget about how she got there And just that she is there And healthy And with you x

Hugs momma! Stay strong, there is still a chance you baby will come. just do everything you can to encourage labor! Lots of nipple stimulating will help!

Thanks ladies..

I've literally tried it all!!! The pressure points in hands and legs/feet. Acupuncture, accupressure with deep massage (another go tomorrow), sex every night mostly really rough lol, walking 2-4 miles a day, mowing the yard push mower, scrubbing floors on hands and knees, calm meditation, talking to baby to come out, pineapple core, nipple stimulation manually and breast pump, orgasm, yoga ball all day long, up/down steep hills, stairs, and even relaxation and clary sage oil. RRLT. Nothing is working.. I'm going for a last ditch effort tomorrow for accupressure and deep massage, pedicure and manicure, Thursday having a sweep done. Seriously considering castor oil after sweep. Then will eat eggplant parmesan for dinner and relax in the jacuzzi Tub with clary sage. I have just resigned myself that none of this will work so I can release any expectations and realize I'm ending up with a c-section Friday!!!

Aw that's rough It sounds like it's in baby's best interest though (if natural labor doesn't happen beforehand). Hoping for the best!

Are you still feeling reduced movement? I was just reading up today that it's common to not gain weight during the last month (I was googling because my ob told me my weight was stagnant and I should gain more). Now I'm a bit more worried.

She moves it's just different kind of movement and not as frequently as she used to. And I used to be able to just rub my belly to get her to move and the last few days I push and prod her and nothing. I've even pulled out my doppler because of some of those times I could get no response and it freaked me out so bad. Yes at this point I think she's better out than in!!!

My baby seemed like she wasn't moving as much this morning (sounds similar as you described, like I could feel her but it was different).. she seems to have gone "back to normal" tonight.

Glad your ob is looking out for baby's best interest. Fingers crossed you go naturally before Friday

Aw. I'm sorry girl! I know you've been so diligent in trying for that vbac!! at least you can't say you didn't try circumstances didn't permit but you did your very best possible. Also, it's not over till it's over! You never now, things might suddenly shift in your favor! Sending you lots of luck to get that baby moving before Friday!! However if you do end up with a section, it won't matter in the grand scheme of things xx

Really sorry to hear this Pink. But like you say, you won't care how she gets here by the time she's here! As soon as you see your sweet baby it won't make a darn difference .
Hoping things swing and you go into labour naturally before Friday hun but if not, best of luck for your section xxx
