Another appt another suprise
Thu, 07-15-2010 - 11:08pm
Had an ultrasound and appt today things went well baby is now 3.5 pounds at almost 30 weeks so he is growing great!! Went to my doctor appt and we talked about the birth and my fears about having another bad labor like my last, she then looks up my medical charts and says she would advise me to have a c-section instead of a vag birth which I have had my last four births. I am pretty surprised and nervous about it! I am going to let it set in and I guess set up a date my next appt  but  grrr kinda upsets me.  Mandy

That's so great that your baby is growing well!

Did she give you any reasons why she thought you needed a c-section?

That is great news about baby's growth!

What reason did your dr. give for suggesting a c-section? Is it an attempt to avoid a bad labor like before? Or is there some health/medical reason why? I would definitely want to discuss with my dr. why that judgment is being made and then take time to think about it and consider it.

Of course, the end goal is a healthy baby and mama, and sometimes that requires a c-section. But definitely ask why and take time to adjust to the idea. (((HUGS)))
