FIRST, IF YOU DONT AGREE WITH OR LIKE MIDWIVES KEEP THOSE OPINIONS TO YOURSELF PLEASE, THANK YOU.
Okay well my midwife scheduled an ultrasound to see if my baby has flipped head down yet next week and to see how big she has gotten. I will be 36 weeks on Monday. I already know my baby has yet to flip and honestly I just have this feeling she's not going to. I am totally okay with having a scheduled c section and I'm glad she is taking the precautions that she is but my parents are flipping out over it. They want me to wait until I'm in labor to see if my baby is going to flip and I'm not comfortable waiting like that. My dad is the worst he keeps telling me that if I had an actual doctor he wouldn't already schedule a c section with two weeks left. (When my midwife and I schedule my c section I'll be 37 weeks and we're going to schedule it for when I'm 39 weeks) also my midwife works in an office with two other doctors whom she consults on my treatment also and one of the doctors in her office will perform my c section, not her. But anyway My dad keeps acting like she knows nothing and he knows more than she does! It's driving me insane he also flips out because the baby will come a week early if I have a c section. He acts like its the end of the world. And it's like they want to be in control of the delivery of my child and mind you I'm 21 years old. I'm totally comfortable with the decisions my midwife has discussed with me and it's like they're not taking that into account. I get that recovery will be longer and harder but it's not like they have any other way to get her out! Lol my dad even had the nerve to suggest that my midwife can shove her whole hand through my cervix into my uterus and turn my baby! There's no way I'd even allow that! And he says it wouldn't be any different than the baby coming out everything's stretched out but he's ignorant of the fact that your vagina hole does not dialate! Your cervix does. But yet he knows just so much more than my doctor. Lol okay I think I'm done ranting now. I just have nobody to vent to.
