My baby girl's Birth Day Scheduled!
I had my 36 1/2 week appointment today and since my baby girl is still breech they're going to schedule my c section for either July 30th or the 31st which is SO soon. And I met with the doctor who will be doing the surgery and I absolutely love her. She took so much time to answer all my questions and I didnt feel rushed at all. And it's kind of fun to know when exactly my baby girl is going to be here :)
She also told me that as soon as my baby girl is delivered she will not leave my sight - they'll clean her up in a warmer that is right next to the OR table, my husband will get to cut the cord, and all three of us will be able to be together in the recovery room and allow me to breastfeed right away. These were HUGE concerns of mine but she just made me feel so much better about having a c section. I was wanting a natural unmedicated childbirth and my DH and I even took Bradley method classes so a c section was definitely not something that was even on my radar 6 weeks ago but I've come to accept it. And it means I get a longer maternity leave so that is a definite plus! :)
So now we have to pack our bags, install the car seat and enjoy these last 2 1/2 weeks just being the two of us! Eeeks!!!! I'm so excited!!!! Only 8 more working days left too which seems crazy to me!
