So around 40 days left until little baby girl enters the world. She’ll come either by her own instigation or through an incision in my uterus– a c-section. I want to go into the labor/birthing process open-minded, but I have to admit I’m somewhat afraid of having a c-section after reading about it and seeing a video on babycenter.com. Baby girl is sitting breech right now and though she has the potential to turn, she might just feel comfy cozy as she is. My friend gave me some advice as to how to get her to turn, like place a package of frozen peas on the top of my belly and a warm compress on the bottom, or take a flashlight and slowly move the beam at point blank range from the top of the belly to the bottom. Eating jello is an option, but I forget why…and standing upside down in a swimming pool just might make her turn.
Back to having a c-section…I know plenty of women who have braved the c-section either planned or emergency that have come out well with healthy babies. There is no reason for me to be afraid given the info above, but something in general about major surgery fuels my anxiety. If you think about it, pray that she turns.
