Hi all, I am just about to start my 40ieth week and I have a deadline of this Thursday to get this baby out naturally or else a section. I have had lots of signs this is going to be successful, but it seems to have been two steps forward one step back for the last two weeks.
I have GD so my doctor is not keen on letting this pregnancy go further than my due date. My first child was large, as a result of undiagnosed GD, and thus I never got this far with him.
This baby is engaged, braxton-hicks are going on, and most of the other points to look for are happening.
Just looking for some words of wisdom, or if anyone else is in the same boat. I am really feeling negative at this point and am about to give up trying for VBAC. I am off for a second round of acupuncture to start things off....so fingers crossed.
also, if anyone has any words of advice on how to mentally be ok with a section after my body has done a great job of getting ready to deliver naturally.....anything will help. This baby thing is messing with my emotions and mind! lol
