Looks like my placenta is somewhat attached to the cervix and I am most likely looking at a c-section. After months of preping for NCB, I feel out of control and very upset. I was hoping that some of you who have had past c-sections might be able to help me out with some information. I don't even know where to begin, but if empowerment is key (and I believe it is) then I need to start some serious reasearch, so I feel a little more in control. (...just as soon as I stop crying...)
UPDATE 9/14: Eeek! We had the 36wk u/s and the placenta is still very low, but we got the thumbs up to go natural! I am so excited! I am even dilated a little and no bleeding! They did estimate Axel to be about 8#......and my OB didn't bat an eye, she said if she could push out a 10 pounder, anyone could! (I was expecting the induction topic to come up.)
Thank you for all of the information and kind comments. I now know a lot more about c-sections, so if I do have to face that for some unforseen reason, I feel a lot more prepared and less frightened. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
