I have had 4 kids , vag delivery. All 4 have been induced because of my health issues, which I won't detail here, but require induction/ early delivery. I went into the drs on Thursday and agreed to get induced on Monday because of lower platelets and Bp being way up requiring a doubling of meds ( I take multiple meds for Bp and to stay pregnant)
It had been planned for Thursday, but they wanted to move it up because of the most recent blood work.
So I go to my perinatologist friday for my regular nst, and find out that overnight baby has turned breech! So we call the dr and explain that even though baby was head down the whole time, he is now head up...
Dr offers to do a version Monday, then if it works en immediate induction if not, then the c section. I agree to this and now I am sitting at my house this whole weekend on bed rest, still... Just worrying about monday. I just want the baby to be safe, but the not knowing is killing me! I was a full 37 weeks when the baby turned breech! He is still breech as far as I can tell. I have to go in tomorrow at noon, but I still just don't know what to think of this whole thing.
Tomorrow one way or the other the baby will be here, but I feel like I am going to have a panic attack sometimes just sitting here waiting! I guess I should be glad that baby flipped before I walked in and was blindsided by the fact ... And that the perinatologist took the time to see that the baby had turned... Bc had I walked in Monday breech, they likely would not have been able to schedule a version ( ecv) on the fly and just recommended to do a c section. But seriously.. I don't handle change well, and in hate surprises .
What I am asking of you... Will you tell me it is going to be ok??? I just need to feel that no matter what it is going to be ok... I am pregnant, feel like crap, have a constant headache, and am now trying not to freak out because i have no birth plan for a c section! I don't even know what to do to prepare of a c section and every time I try to read about them I just want to cry! I had 4 kids the old fashioned way, and I just wish I knew what to expect for tomorrow.
I know it is just nerves, and being on bed rest isn't helping them, but I can't talk to my mom, I have no sisters, and few friends that want to listen to a hormonal pregnant woman whine about her insecurities.
Seriously if I could take a Xanax right now... I so would. Any sort of sedative... I would, but of course there is nothing I can do and I feel so powerless . If we had planned a c section, I could have prepared and dh could have requested more time off.... Or some other arrangement... I have 4 young kids... I am a control freak and right now, I have been sitting here resting for 48 hours with nothing to do but try to distrAct my self from worrying and It hasn't worked.
Oh and dh haas been a total a$$ about the whole thing. Most of the time he is a decent guy, but last night I would have kicked his a$$ if I was allowed to get up.
It will be ok. You are lucky they found out before you went in! You need to rest and take it easy and don't worry. The most important thing is the health of you and the baby and it sounds like those are well taken care of.
HONEY!!!!! Of course it will be okay!! They're WELL prepared for you. Just be lucky they realized baby is breech NOW. You're gonna see your little one tomorrow, SO EXCITING!! Good luck sweetie. ALL will be well no matter how baby gets here
Everything will be fine. Try to rest and relax before tomorrow. You get to meet your baby! That is so exciting, I know it might not be the way you planned but as long as both of you are happy and healthy all will be well.
Have you googled natural ways to try to turn baby? Ive heard that being on your hands and knees sometimes works. Just dont stress about it too much, you get to see your baby tommorow!
aww hun your be ok ive had 2 c sections and all went very well both times just focus on the fact your going to meet your baby very soon who cares how baby comes at the end of the day it dosent matter what matters is getting baby delivered safely and you both being ok and you WILL be so dont panic xxx
Thanks so much guys! I will be heading into the drs in 7 hrs for the version and to get the ball rolling in one way or another and can't sleep ATM. Wicked headache and bp is high ( it isn't new and the drs know) it will be good that i will feel less pain after healing from delivery.
Last night dh said he was sorry and that he will try to get 2 weeks off work if I need a c section to help with the 4 little ones plus the new baby.
I will update this thread as the day goes on, so you can see how everything turns out. Dh says he is sure it will be ok no matter what. And I really want to believe him. Now I just have to get myself ready to head out and deal with the final touches here. I hope you guys are having a great day. I am very grateful for your responses.
Sometimes it means so much just knowing that someone cares!
