We just got back from the ultrasound, and the tech said, “Uh-oh, we have a problem…this baby’s breech. You’re going to have to have a c-section.” Just like that. Of course, I know that’s not the only option, but the way she said it was very disappointing to us. According to the measurements, I am now 35 weeks and 6 days, which is exactly what I had calculated. According to other due date calculators, I am a 36 weeks and 6 days. Either way, I just wonder what to do next. They also said the baby was 5 pounds 9 ounces, which seems pretty big to me at this point. I know that’s not always accurate, either.
I’ve not had very good luck with this pregnancy over the last half. I supposed I’m making up for having a great 1st half. So now, I’ve got gestational diabetes, an anterior placenta, and a breech baby. All things that are abnormal. The placenta thing could mean they have a problem doing a c-section because they don’t want to cut into the placenta, which is at the front of my body.
Would you please just pray that little baby would turn head-down soon? I know there are methods to do this…but, it’s hard not to feel hopeless and sad about it. It’s just not what we had planned. I am really scared of having surgery, plus, I know the benefits of having a natural childbirth are so great.
