So a few months ago I was talking with my doctor about having a c-section or vbac (vaginal birth after c-section). She said I am a good candidate to do either. So I get to choose......Hmmmmm......??????? I cant. I figure I have lots of time, and secretly hope I just go into labor before I have to choose. I don't want to have surgery, I don't want a long recovery. I don't want the risk of blood clots, leading to death. I also firmly believe that babies need to be squeezed out, many babies have breathing issues after a c-section because the change in environment was so extreme, and their little lungs were not squeezed as they were born. As many of you know, I'm not one who wants to risk breathing issues. So the risks are greater for mothers and babies in c-sections vs a vaginal delivery, and as many of you may know, I'm not in the mood for risk.
I also was considering the fact that Adam only has two days off work until January 1st. So the benefit of a c-section is planning, having help, and using the long labor day weekend to our advantage. I have a c-section on the calendar for THIS Friday. Yes, that is tomorrow. My doctor says I can cancel the day of, in fact up to 10:00 in the morning, and I am truly considering that. I DON'T WANT TO BE CUT ON. I DO WANT FRIDAY TO BE THE DAY. you see the problem.
So I have 24 hours to make a decision. Any thoguhts?
