I thought I was over the PAL brain, but it turns out I'm not.
I just had my 36 1/2 week appointment today. I had a NST which I passed with flying colors. However, they also did an u/s. The amniotic fluid and placenta look great, but I got some worrysome news. (However, the OB isn't freaking out like I am).
It turns out baby girl has a nuchal cord.. ie: a cord wrapped around her neck. And the kicker is that she is in a transverse position... which means if she doesn't move, it's C-section for me. Of course, I want what is best for her.. but I am still nervous about a section, as I had a natural unmedicated birth with DD. Mostly though I am petrified about the cord around the neck. I KNOW she's ok, so the PAL part of my brain just wants her out now.
