I know it isn't their fault, but it gets me so angry. One friend freaked out and told me that when she had her c-section her doctor told her never to try a vaginal birth because she would bleed to death and the baby would die. WTF?!? But then I look like the nutcase when I say the OB was wrong.

 

Oh well! I hope your xray turns out good! And that your baby turns too!


Ah well, it's only ignorance. They don't know better, and they also get scared by docs/other people. So sad, really.

The maternal death rates, and c-section rates, in the US is scary though.

 

I'm not having the xray unless I have to, so I'm still hoping baby turns. I don't want to expose him to xray if not 100% necessary, as in, absolutely in birth and him still breech.

But thanks, and I hope your baby flips too, since yours have to for you to give birth the way you want *flipping vibes your way*.

Hah, todays U/S showed us he's back in vertex! (Left-anterior vertex even, so ideal, and the way he was before.)
He was breech last night when I went to bed, for sure, but he did move around a lot as I was trying to sleep, so that's why.

Yay! I'm crossing everything that he stays this way now.
