Normally I just lurk here but I feel like I need a couple hugs today and those regular expecting boards are just not my thing.
I'm 37 weeks today. Baby has be in every possible position for the entire pg but for the last 5 days has stayed breech. I'm so not happy. I know there are a few dr's here who will do a vag. breech birth but it is just so much more complicated than the homebirth that I really want. Plus, the other three really want to watch but there's no way they'd be allowed in a del. room at the hospital. I know the baby could still turn but the closer I get to term, the less confident I am. I am doing all the tricks for breech that I can think of (except the ironing board thing since I can't breathe while on my back) but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Then, to add to that, I went to my family dr today suspecting bronchitis. Sure enough, that's what I have so now I'm on antibiotics. I've thought it might be bronchitis since the weekend but hoped it would clear up on it's own but this morning I woke up coughing up blood. Sigh.
I just feel like everything is against me today. Pity party day, hormonal day, whatever - it just sucks!!
Thanks for listening.
