38 week appt. C-section scheduled for Wednesday

I am updating from my phone, so the short and sweet of it is Atlas is still transverse and my placenta is right in the front making a version dangerous and not likely to be successful. I am scheduled for surgery Wednesday morning at 8am. I will probably also have a tubal ligation at that time. I'm waiting to hear from the billing department so I can get an idea of the cost. I'm nervous, but glad we have a plan.

Good luck Larissa! My c-section with Jesse was fully covered by insurance, but they still insisted on sending me billing information - it was around $14,000.00.

Be sure to post your birth story and some photos when you get a chance.

I'm sorry he's still transverse and you can't try a version, but yay for him almost being here! That's two of you with scheduled c-sections for Wednesday!! I'm so excited that our LOs will be coming soon!! I hope everything goes well for you. Enjoy your last weekend before Atlas gets here!

Sorry to hear about the 'complications' leading to early delivery, but that's so exciting that you'll be holding atlas in 5 days!!! I'm super jealous (even though you're due before me so I should expect you to deliver before me!)

Good luck and definitely keep us posted :)

I can't believe we are going to finally have some babies showing up in this group!

I am not sure if you are interested in a vaginal delivery or if you are ok with a c-section, but I thought I would let you know what helped turn my baby head down.
