The Final Countdown?
Called my doctor's office to confirm we are all set for Monday the 11th and the response I got was not what I wanted to hear. I have spent the last 33 years doing everything necessary to AVOID surgeries of any kind. So much so that when they did my C-Section when I had Christian they had to put me under because I was so freaked out by it. So I have been quietly anxious and have really only told those closest to me how very scared I really am. Guess I'm now telling my secrets. So when I called the doctor the girl said, oh we called the hospital and they are booked already so we need to know what day you would like. I told them I would prefer to do it sooner rather than later. Once you've had a C-Section and you have to do it again they try to do it 1-2 weeks in advance of your due date so you don't run the risk of going into labor. The way they see it is, why labor if you don't have to. I can see the point. So she called me back to let me know the soonest they could do it would be May 14th. WHAT? Are you kidding me? Now I have even more time to sit back and contemplate everything. My emotions are in high gear. May 14th is only 3 days from my due date so there is a chance I could go into labor before then. I'm not sure if I'm hoping I do, cause then they would have to move up the C-Section, or if I want to make it to the 14th. Again, why labor if I don't have to? I love my doctor but this last month has been so stressful I'm not sure I could recommend his office. I'm so glad to have a wonderful support system to help me through this.
