Greetings from the newbie

Well, I haven't had my c-section yet. I'll know on Sunday if it will be on Monday or Wednesday. Right now I'm 38 weeks and the baby is frank breech and the only way I can get a vaginal delivery is if I go to a private doctor.

Which we can't afford.

So it looks like a c-section. I'm not happy with the descision, but I'm becoming ok with it, resigned to it and for the life of me, I cannot understand why it depresses the hell out of me.

At 37 weeks we attempted an ECV, which obviously failed and since there's only a 10% chance a second version would work, after discussing things with my OB, we opted for a scheduled c-section... which in Israel is considered 'elective'. Regardless of why the woman needs the section or how far along she is.

The trials and tribulations of trying to get the c-section can be read here.

The 'crap' I mention at the beginning of the post is in reference to the version.

With the descision made, I emailed the various family members and called my mom... then got into the shower and sobbed uncontrolably for 15 minutes. As I said... I don't know why this is upsetting me so much.

I'm 35 years old, married 3 years this August the second time around to a great guy. Went through a bit over a year of fertility treatments (I have PCOS) and we're finally going to have our miracle to hold... and I'm crying because it's a c-section. It shouldn't matter how he is born... all that matters is he be healthy...

Man, I hate hormones...


YOUR emotional well being matters a lot also. It's normal to feel all kinds of emotions when something life changing that you planned suddenly changes. It's OK to feel everything you are feeling, don't let "all that matters is a healthy baby" override your emotional well being. I had a very positive expierence with my c-section so if you have any questions or just want to talk, feel free to ask.
It's a boy...girl...surprise! <3
