I'm so happy to learn that you've made a decision with which you are comfortable. Hope we can be of service to you.
Actually the perfectionist in me can't live with any set of consequences...
But I still think I'm choosing right.
My thought process goes like this:
RIGHT NOW a cesarean is not indicated. I am sitting on my couch, typing, feeling good. Why do I need a c/s NOW? I don't. It may be indicated in the next 5 min. - or the next week, month, etc. At that time I will access the situation & decide. Until such a time as a need presents itself, why not just continue on? All is well.
Labor, crowning & birth don't need to change anything, they are normal processes too.
