This is Super-Awesome. I’m the husband. I am writing this blog post because my wife is too busy getting ready for tomorrow (Tuesday). After I tell you what is happening, I’m sure you’ll understand.
So my wife went to the doctor’s today and our normal pregnancy was turned upside down, literally. I guess we’ve got a breech baby now. so they scheduled her for a c-section.
Now when I heard this, I said “Hold the phone, Tonto. Why aren’t we trying to flip the baby (ECV)?” Well I guess we have an anterior placenta and those are at a higher risk of complications. So I guess we are going into surgery tomorrow. 12:30pm. My wife is devastated by this turn of events, and very scared, but I know we’ll be fine. I just hope she can make it half a day without food. She sometimes gets a little grouchy without a nosh.
We’re fixin’ to meet with our doctor tomorrow at 8am and he’s pretty progressive so he might be able to convince him to do a “family centered” or “natural” c-section. Or we might get lucky and this baby has turned head-down again.
Any-whoozel. Wish us luck. The next blog post will be my wife telling you all about our “little flipper.” Also known as Skittle.
