I feel like this baby is going to be born earlier than DS was. Not really like baby will plop out, but... I keep having the feeling like this baby is going to be "early" either a preemie, or at least not make it to 40 weeks.
As for me, DS and DF have appointments with our GP tomorrow, and I'm going to go with to see if he can/will prescribe me something. I gave in and have been taking Sudafed, but while it sometimes makes it to where I can breathe easier, not always, and it's not getting better. I called the office of a OB that is highly recommended here (on Mothering) in my area, and called today to see if they are taking new patients, but apparently they don't take my insurance, so... I have to find someone else. I'm out of options that are local, so now we're looking at about an hour's drive one way. My mom and family keep saying that I'm going to have to just go back to the practice I was going to, but every time I start to feel defeated and say something similar to DF, he says, "Not if they aren't going to let you do it your way, you're not!" It helps, knowing he's supportive of me, but at the same time, I really would like to just be able to get care and have a daggone baby. I don't see why it has to be so hard. I have had one successful VBAC already, so obviously (to me), my body can handle it.
It's this type of situation that makes me so angry about DD's birth. I hate that the OB I was seeing took such advantage of me, and my age, and did the things to me she did. I hate that I was so naive to give in, and let her do whatever she wanted, but... how do you argue when they tell you if you don't do what they say, your baby is going to die?
