We went to the Doctors on Monday and at that time the baby was still breach. The midwife started talking about a c-section and described the process to us so that we were prepared. The midwife got really concerned when the two lesbians started crying, and if you met Kate crying is not something that she does. We explained that a c-section was not something that we wanted and how hard it was to hear that it was now the plan. The midwife was very supportive. She talked about her experience and from that I knew that she got it. She encouraged me to try the moxa treatment at my acupunctist again and scheduled me to return on Thursday to meet with a doctor. She hand picked the doctor that she felt was the best fit describing her as a "midwife at heart who decided to go to medical school" She is actually the doc that I like the best in the practice. We also discussed how the other doc had told us that because of the size of the baby I was looking at a c-section for that. The first thing that the midwife said was "ultrasounds are often off by a pound to a pound and a half" (THANK YOU!!!) SHe said that if the baby is estimated to be over 10 pounds then they offer a c-section it is not required. She encouraged me to deliver naturally and if the baby is too big we would be able to tell during labor. It was such a different experience then we had had the week prior.
So on Thursday we went for an Ultrasound and she had turned
Not sure when it happened but I am so happy that it did.
The doc did talk to us about induction. Due to the GD they do not want me to go past my due date.
So on Monday I will have a NST and they will check if I am dilated at all. They will then schedule an induction for the end of the week. I plan to have acupuncture so that I can avoid as many induction drugs as possible. Acupuncture helped me get pregnant and helped turn the baby, I feel that it is fitting to have it as part of the birth process.
