We knew that probably I'll have to have a C-section although I was still hoping I can have V-birth - I was attending yoga classes, we went to a special course with the daddy-to-be.... 2 weeks before my doc explained that because of my skin type I fall into that 2% that will most likely rip apart during labour no matter what we do... it does sound scarry and he said he doesn't want to stitch me up for 2 hours after a "challenging" birth... well I must agree with that! Plus this super pale withe skin with these freckles and red hair is the worst combination in this case, I might lose too much blood because my capillaries don't heal as fast as the other 98%'s so that's another risk factor, plus baby Tommy is quite chubby and it would cause further problems too. So slowly I made myself to accept the fact I'll have to have this c-section.
Yesterday I went for my 3rd ctg and they told me it didn't look good. Tommy was either super hyper and moving away from the head all the time - then after a while he fell asleep and his hr started to drop - wasn't critical but the nurse wasn't happy with our results - they sent my for a flowmetry scan. Our results were good but my doc decided to keep a close eye on us - so Tomorrow (aug21) I'll have to move in to the hospital and on Monday or Tuesday I'll have the c-section done - depending on all our results. It's going to be sooooooo boring until Monday.... If possible I'd like to have a shared room so I can have company - I hate hospitals but I know this time I'll be there for a very positive outcome :) I have so much stuff to take in as if I'd go for a 2-3 weeks vacation! :) I'll try to rest, read and watch movies until Monday and then..... :) it's going to be the loooooooooongest 4 days in our lives with DH!
