I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to post this. Colton Charles arrived on Wed. Jan 7th at 10:43 am. He weighed 6lbs 6oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. He was 2lbs lighter than his older brother. I was supposed to go in for a c-section on the 12th, but he had his own plans. I went into labor at around 3 in the morning. I finally called the dr. a little after 6 who told me to get to the hospital ASAP. Of course here in NY we were in the middle of an ice storm. We had to wait for my mom to get here to watch my older son, but we finally made it at around 8:00. Thank goodness I already was going to have a c-section, because we found out after they cut me open that he was breach. My doctor told me a week before his head was down. I am so thankful we decided not to go with a VBAC, because not only would it have entailed us driving an hour instead of 10 minutes to a hospital (our hospital won't do them) but I would have ended up with a c-section anyways. We were really nervous when we found out that he was a boy, because his big brother wanted a sister. Garrett is adjusting well, but we have had our bumps in the road.

Angie,
Thank you. I have a feeling my dr. didn't know what position he was really in. I talked to his pediatrician, who I trust way more than my ob/gyn, and he stated that i would have felt him flip. I never did. I felt like he was in the same position the entire time.

Trish

Hi Trish,


I tend to agree with your pediatrician at that stage in your pg, you would have felt him flip!!
