So I finally got to have my sit down appointment with my cardiologist, neurologist, and OB docs. When I had DD back in July, it was kind of a nightmare.. 28 hours of labor with both of us having issues.. both our heartrates kept dropping and then I got very tachy. I was able to have DD vaginally with an epidural, but they think that next time I'll have to have a c/s to avoid the stress on my heart since I have heart problems. I'm kind of upset but at the same time, I can understand why. It's not safe to have my heartrate go up to 175 and then drop into the 60's, then go back up in the 170's. Ali's heartrate was steadily dropping with each contraction.. if it had gone on for more than a few more minutes, it would have been an emergency c/s. So for the next time we're planning to shoot for a c/s so I don't have those same issues again. Sorry that I'm ranting, I'm kinda upset but still understanding, if that makes sense. Ugh.

I think it's totally normal to find news like that upsetting. It means you will have to give up your hopes of a vaginal delivery. But it sounds like your doctors are being very thoughtful and truly doing what is best for you and your baby... even knowing that doesn't mean that you can't feel disappointed at the same time, though. You have a right to your feelings.
