Birth Plan

Ok...let’s get real!!! Prior to my first pregnancy, I dreamt of me pushing my baby out in different ways!! Here I am, a few days before my due date...having mild contraction. I’m thinking...hey, I think I can do this! Well, wishful thinking on my part. I went to see my OB per their request, to check to see if I’m in labor. The OB was excited to tell me that my contractions were consistent indicating I was in early labor. At that time, frequent vaginal exams were a thing. OB said I had not dilated, but noticed something odd. She sent me to the hospital for an ultrasound (their machine was not working 🙄). I was sooooo hungry, I was going to do a detour on my way to the hospital. I was convinced not to. An OB performs the ultrasound and scares me by saying my baby would be anywhere between 8.5-9lbs. Great!!!! The baby is healthy!! One issue...the baby is breech!! The OB refused to maneuver her due to her size. Drum roll!!!! OB: We have to perform a c-section! My heart dropped. I didn’t want that at all. However, I didn’t want to put myself or the baby at risk. My healthy baby girl was born several hours later weighing in at 8lbs 1oz and 21in long!!!! She was so perfect!
