It may end up not being possible, but I'm going to try. I do have to talk to my OB and
family physician about their schedules. But, I'm far more willing to chance their absence for a TOL than I am just to labour before a section.
I'm still hoping for one more baby after this, and I know my chances of getting a caregiver to cooperate with a VBA3C attempt are pitiful. So, this is the one I'm going to try for. I definitely feel more involved in this decision than in either of my previous births, which helps. (The first was a panic situation, and the second one left me feeling railroaded.)
I'm going back to spinningbabies.com. I had looked up some breech exercises (eg. breech tilt), but had quit doing them because I didn't know which way baby was turned, and couldn't figure it out. As always, it seems totally obvious now...what we thought might
be baby's head was his/her bum and spine. I just need to find the exercises to urge this baby to turn around a little bit.
I may yet have a few crises, but I think I'm now at a point where I can cope with whatever outcome I get. I'll try to avoid another section (especially if my toddler continues the way she's been the last few days!!), but I'm not in the "end of the world" mindset about it anymore. You ladies have been terrific!
I am glad this week is over...I failed a road test yesterday, which didn't exactly make my week.
