Gah, tippy, I know just how you feel! They all seem to want us to *do* something to create the perfect birth scenario and it's always something completely out of our control!
Went to the MW yesterday and, of course, they could not reach the head on the pelvic! Now they're back to being skittish and want me to see the OB *again*! Good thing I never bothered to cancel my appointment. She seems to be floating pretty high near my left hip, but facing it, with her butt just to the right of my belly button. This was *exactly* where she was at OB's last week and he said oblique was fine as long as the head was lower. I keep reminding them that 2nd babies often do not descend into the pelvis until labor and they're all like yeah, yeah, but we can't feel it! Arghhhh! They can feel her head when they palp the abdomen and get the heartbeat right by my left hip, but is that good enough - nooooo.
I also had to have another NST (perfect as always - read unnecessary) and have to have an ultrasound for fluid and size. They are constantly going on about her being little (not too) and having so much room to move around - and we're checking fluid and size?!
So as of this morning I can go to the BC when I'm in labor, but they are clearly afraid of me. I like the OB, but the hospital experience surrounding the version was so horrible I don't know how I could give birth there unless forced to by pharmaceuticals.
Gee, so is it any wonder I'm nowhere near labor? I keep thinking of having the baby in the closet! At least DH is now on vacation and is being super helpful with all the house/child stuff. We're less angry today.
I hope I can find a way back to my "help myself every way I can, but do not become attached to outcome" thing that the acupuncturist suggested.
