The doctor still hasn't received my surgical record, so it's a c-section for me. Kicker: baby girl went head-down for the appointment. She's still moving back and forth and out of position, but for the u/s, she was head-down. I think that he was going to try to let me do VBAC. He said that if DS2 had been a regular c-section, then the cut would have been ideal and I could do it. In the interest of honesty and safety, I reminded him that DS2 was an emergency c-section, so there was no way of knowing. There's only a slight risk, but I am a high bleed risk, the nearest trauma hospital is in Denver, and the policy here is not to take the extra risk. I hate it, but I understand.

At first, they were going to do it on Monday, but remembered the holiday. Wednesday was booked, so I'm having a baby on Friday morning! One week! Cuh-razy. I'm still not ready, but I have a week to try to get ready!

Sorry about the section, but I have to agree, in light of not having all the information and your bleed risk, I agree it's not worth taking the chance. Either way, in a week, you'll have your bambino!

Babies are coming!!

So bugged that your previous hospital wouldn't send those records for you, but it's better to be safe than sorry. On the bright side: how cool that you get to hold your babe in just a week! Her method of arrival may not your first choice, but I'm sure all that will melt away when you get to meet that sweet girl! So excited for you!

One week to go! So glad you have a date, but sorry the birth isn't the method you hoped for. January 4 has a nice ring to it!

I'll be nervous, and the doc is offering meds for the PTSD and dealing with it until then. How weird and kind. Hahaha I'm trying to focus on the getting a baby part! My in-laws will be here so I won't be alone in the OR-focusing on that. Not having to watch the kids in the hospital room while DH is at work-also focusing on that.

OMG The cleaning and organizing to be done, though! Whew! Especially if the in-laws are coming! Hahahah

I am so upset with what you're going through with this I couldn't respond at first. I am so sorry and angry for you. How far away from you is this hospital that won't release your records?

Praying for peace of mind and a swift recovery. Hugs Hun.

Bri, it's UAB! Now, they're across the country, but I was at Kirklin Clinic and UAB for DS2, and I wouldn't wish that "best hospital" on anyone! We even tried to request all records. Suspiciously, they sent all but the ultrasounds and the surgical report, the most incriminating records. The doctor even called and told them that this was NOT for a legal matter, but for a repeat section or possible VBAC. They told him that they would send it. They sent the placental pathology. *sigh* I'm so angry. The doc offered something for anxiety to get me through this week. I turned it down, but I'm sort of wishing that I hadn't. I'm sure that once I get closer to the day, I'll be more excited. I AM excited, of course, but that's so little of what I'm feeling right now. It sucks.

Ugh, how very frustrating that they won't cooperate with you to get you the needed records. Why is it so stinking hard to get our own darn medical records!?

It seems you have a good outlook despite everything you are having to deal with. Chin up, sweetie!

and YAY for baby next week!!
