I struggled last week with the idea that I may have to have a scheduled c-section, due to the baby possibly being breech. Struggled to the point that I cried one day two different times. Realize that it is not so much to do with the c-section itself as much as it had to do with the idea that I may be "missing out" on something if I have to schedule our baby's arrival.
After talking things over with my husband (several times) and several friends, I finally worked through everything. Thanks to several people explaining the pros and cons of both a natural and caesarean delivery, I felt 100% better. I was able to make peace with everything and understand that everything will work out exactly like it's supposed to. Let's face it - I don't have control over any of this anyway, so why stress? And, not to mention, after sitting through our final 4-hour childbirth class this afternoon, I started to really think how maybe a c-section wouldn't be all that bad after all! :)
No matter what, Smyrna Baby will make his/her appearance in the next 5 weeks, and as long as he/she is healthy, I could really care less what arrival route he/she takes.
