Okay, I have a bad case of the home stretch jitters right now. I don't know if I'm coming or going. Just lugging this belly around, and trying to get things set up for the baby, would be enough on its own. Then I have the fairly heavy case of polyhydramnios going on, and the question of whether that means the baby has a major health problem or whether it could cause a problem. I know I went through this in another thread, but it remains a concern. And finally, I have the question of whether my doc will recommend a c-section. So many people have been saying c-sections are over-used, the polyhydramnios could be exaggerating the baby's measurements, and a big baby isn't an automatic reason for a planned c-section anyway. I'm still on the fence on this issue myself. I wonder if my age is also a factor in the way my doctor is leaning. Guess I'll have to ask him that question myself.
I just want my baby boy here safely in my arms, and at this point I'm pulling my hair out waiting for that day to come. Those who have been down this road before and found yourselves going a bit crazy at the end-- please help! How did you get through it?
