It looks like 75 - 80% chance I will have to have a c-section unless it moves
I am trying to get all the c-section info I can & find ways to make the time before, during & after more pleasant (i.e. make sure nurses know I want to breastfeed in recovery, leboyer style bath, my music I would have used for laboring playing during the surgery.) If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I am gearing up for a c-section, that way I am emotionally and mentally prepared if it happens, and pleasantly suprised if it doesn't.
Back on the happy side...
we are considering
for names for the new guy
does this tie the boys & girls back up again?
