I have thought often about the pink kit, but never did it...I'm 39 weeks today, so, obviously no turning back on my planning now!
Anyway, my first, my c/s was because I was pushing for 2 hours and apparently that was my time limit for my doc! Grrrrr!!!!!! :( Anyway, I later found out he was malpositioned, but didn't think too too much of it. I knew the induction was a big probable reason, he just wasn't ready! My water was broken at just 2cm, so I figured he descended in a poor position. I had an early epidural, so I figured between lack of movement and not being able to feel myself pushing and so on, it was just a cascade of interventions that lead to my c/s. Plus an impatient doctor that only gave me 2 hours to push and then SHE wanted to go home! Again...grrrr!!!!
For my vbac, because of the malpositioning I decided that natural was the way to go! I patiently waited to go into labor on my own and when I did, I stayed up and mobile. However, 90 minutes into pushing with this new doc, he started to pressure me a bit, partially because of "last time". I too felt the pressure of, how long will they let me push. So, his idea, because my baby was again malpositioned, was to give me the epidural so he could manually reach up there and turn baby's head so she could come down. It worked.....but, at this point the light bulb went off with malpositioned babies!
So, this time, I've done yoga, chiropractic visits (which I found out I have a hip misalignment which TOTALLY went hand in hand with the malpositioning of my first two babies), and I again plan to stay natural and mobile. But this time, with my prep work and again, new and actually very very very supportive doctor, I know my likelihood to succeed is much much greater! He sees no reason to put a pushing time limit on a perfectly healthy mom and baby like the previous two times.
Okay, so very long background and I haven't had this 3rd baby yet, but I will say I'm a LOT more aware of his positioning during pregnancy...so I do hope I'll be more aware during labor and delivery as well! I know for my first, I knew very little about baby positioning, the idea of knowing where baby's feet or butt was, was just far beyond me! With my second, I visited spinning babies a few times and looked on there, but I didn't really think too much about it. This time, I've really educated myself and since I can tell and do know where my baby is, I feel a lot more confident because my knowledge and my prep work to be successful in the ways I want to be successful!
I hope you enjoy the pink kit! I'm sure it's a great buy!!!
