Not sure how I feel about this...

As you know I am in the homestretch, being presently at 35 weeks and counting. The boy is still in breech - indeed in footling breech, which is a type that generally does not correct well through manual intervention. I guess either nature takes its course or I will be having a c-section. Not what I want, but what am I going to do?
So, here is what's kinda bothering me. My OB (who I have a lot of respect for, and who I feel has *always* been looking out for me throughout 10 years of pregnancies, m/c and other girl stuff) just put this out there today at our appointment:
"Libby, if you go into labour and the baby hasn't turned... and you end up having a section you should be sure to tell them that you want your tubes tied after the delivery. Your tubes will be right there and it will be a very simple matter of getting it done."
I have to say that I was a bit stunned.
Now, to be clear - I have declared routinely that "the factory is closed" after this baby comes... and I will be 43 in less than a month... but I just feel all weird about the finality of this. Plus, I had kind of figured DH would have the snip... I mean, we women do *everything* else, it doesn't seem so much to ask for him to have this very minor procedure. DH is reluctant to commit, but would probably come around.
BUT, I guess IF I am already in surgery, the greater good would be to have my tubes tied.
I was just not ready to have this topic on the table... and now, there it is.
