DS was born by cesarean due to breech presentation. Recently I got my surgical report and was surprised to find that he was a double footling breech. Serial ultrasounds the weeks before his delivery always showed him in Frank breech position. So, I did a google search and everything I see for double footing breech shows a baby with their feet/legs out of the uterus and into mom's vagina or out of her body. I'm really confused. I think I would have felt feet/legs in my vagina....right? I do have a 'heart shaped' uterus so I know more breech babies are possibly in my future. I'm concerned that if DS was a double footling breech other babies might be the same and that of breech positions, this one is less desirable for a vaginal birth, which I'm hoping for.
I did labor for a while to get DS and me all those good birth hormones. Labor started at 7pm, went to the hospital at around 1am. Told I was 2cm dilated. Given Trubutline to slow down labor (planned cesarean was for that morning at 9am). Labor slowed though I continued to have small contractions the EFM picked up. I couldn't feel them and slept for a a couple hours. At 4am the nurses rushed in due to DS's decels. I was prepped for surgery and DS was born at 4:30am. I didn't get anything but the Trubutline between admission to the hospital and the spinal while in the OR.
