Mimiharshe!! You have been on my mind since I read your post an hour or so ago, and I had to get back on hte computer to write to you. My heart goes out to you and I hope at this very moment that your body and baby have synched up to do the deed.
I know how it feels to be at odds with the medical establishment. DS was breech until very late (37 or 38wks), and breech at onset of labor is an automatic c-section in washington where I live. Scared the bee-jeezus out of me. I did everything I could to work around the system, and luckily I was able to get him to turn using yoga so I didn't have to resort to subversion.
I am worried about you, though! Even though I don't know you and it's none of my business (funny thing about this community! It inspires one to reach out!! ) I felt that someone on this board should issue the word of caution.
No one wants an unnecessary c-section if they can prevent it. And you are the best judge of how you and the baby are fairing, I agree. But be cautious that what you are doing _is_ risky and beware the you may want a homebirth so bad that it may cloud your judgement about what is safe for you and the baby and what isn't. There are cases where c-sections are necessary- where they really save lives, not just liability. And it sounds to me like you may be walking that line. I urge you to be viligiant to signs of hazard and not do a homebirth at all costs. If you feel there is anything not right, please remember that allopathic medicine is good at crisis medicine and should be used in those events.
I hope I didn't rain on your parade. It just struck me that it's easy to root for someone who is bucking the system. But it's easy for us to do that when we don't have any responsability. We would never know if something went awry. Please do let us know how your'e doing. You're going to be on my mind, I know.
I am sending labor vibes your way.
