croldan, if i may ask: why a c-s?

I had a fractured pelvis 5 yrs ago from a car accident. The fracture was a "thru and thru" meaning it was fractured on both sides of the bone. The pressure from the baby may cause bigger problems during delivery and re-injure my pelvis. Oh well, he'll have to come out some way huh?

... have you gotten a second opinion?
post #27 of 100
I personally haven't gotten one but my doctor said he got a 3rd and even a 4th opinion with other doctors in the office.

if i were you, i'd go to a different office.

i'm not saying your doctor is lying or even that he's not right, but just that if i were in your situation i'd want to make sure a c-section was my only option.

Welcome new baby girl!!!

Hey ladies I had my baby this morning at 7:20 am. She was 6 lbs 12 oz and 18 3/4" long I had the baby at home as intended with my MW, dh and 3 dd's present. I had the waterbirth after all and will post more on it later.

Quick story though yesterday morning I decided to paint my kitchen as the last thing I wanted to get done before baby arriving. After I was done I noticed my panties were wet not like discharge (gooey) but very wet. I wet 2 more underwears in the crotch area like this. A couple of hours later it slowed down though. All this accompanied by the usual braxton hicks I was getting since sat./sun. so at around 11pm I started feeling crampy. I went to the bathroom around midnight and noticed show. I was excited. I called my MW around 1:30 am contractions were about 6-8 minutes apart. She was here by 2:30 or so. We filled up the tub and it was great for my contractions during labor. I hit transition somewhere around 6:30 or so maybe earlier and was trying hard not to push. At the end though I had to push and get baby out. Out came baby and we have a 4th little girl with us. Her sisters are in love (hopefully it will stay that way :0) )

Hope all goes well with the rest of the pregnant mommies and looking forward to reading your birth announcments.

Oh we're not set on a name just yet. It may be either Maryam or Sumayyah.
