MW almost here...ctx every 3 minutes for almost a minute.
There is a reasonable OB on call before the good one, so I'm ok. Though of course he'd still prefer c-section. Looks like I'll be leaving soon. Will have DP update after birth.

OMG Ow.

Oh, good luck! Stay strong, you can do this! I hope they don't give you too much trouble. Maybe that baby knows when the nicer doctor is on call.

Thinking of you... (And I hope you think of a good name for the baby, heh!)

Just catching up on this story. I am SO impressed with how you've handled it.

And now I'm on the edge of my seat about the contractions and the ob on call. Sending many good thoughts your way!

This is exactly what I was thinking. Sending good birth vibes since it sounds like you'll be going back to the hospital...

I'm guessing you are in the midst of your birth by now. But just in case things peter-out and you end up home again. . .

I had an extremely stressful and adversarial experience in the birth of my twins, in December 2006. Pretty much all the same hooey you are experiencing about the scare tactics of the doctors and whatnot - my second twin was breech. (Breech second twin = considered less risky than breech singleton. Double footling breech = considered more risky than your frank breech).

I just wanted to share with you the value I found in building a "bubble" of protection around myself. My husband and my "not-formally-trained-doula" sister-in-law were there to help me. Having one of them on each side of me was an obvious physical manifestation of their emotional support and helped me feel protected from the adversarial medical staff. Their physical proximity was extremely important to me - far beyond "press! I'm having back labour" which was what first necessitated them being immediately at my side. I had never realized just how important it could be to have an actual physical connection with people I knew shared my beliefs in the birth. I felt almost like the birthing bed was some sort of den or elevated shrine - maybe like a raft on water. I definitely felt separated from the many carts of medical equipment that the hospital staff had ringed the bed with (certain they were giving me a c-section, transporting me to the operating room, giving me an epidural, dealing with babies who would be compromised at birth, etc, etc).

Having this semi-physical "bubble" around me helped immensely with the psychological game of birthing.

Good luck!

Six kids, sixth sense, six degrees of separation. . . from sanity!
Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".

I've been offline for a week or so, and just found your story today -- and what a day! You, your family, midwife, and OB are definitely in my thoughts. I am wanting the best memories to come out of this nasty situation, for you.
Sending positive vaginal birthing vibes your way, and healthy growing vibes for your baby.
take care

The whole Spetember DDC has been thinking of you and praying for you. A lot of us just found out that you're still posting over here.

I hope everything is going the way you want it, and that you and the babe are doing well.
