Also midwife wanted to talk birth plan today - and we did, a bit. But honestly I had a hardcore birth plan with C and none of it happened. So I am reluctant to plan.
I have a doula - 2 doulas actually. Only one will attend the birth but they work like a back up team - if one is not available the day of the birth then the other one comes. Both meet with us leading up to the birth. Doula #1 is very experienced and has worked with couples who had a difficult birth prior. Doula #2 is experienced as well and is in women's studies at the University and has a queer sister who gave birth 2 weeks ago.
Okay so back to the breech thing: of course my mind has already gone to the land of possible c-sections. I'd like to avoid another c-section. And up to this point I was considered a good VBAC candidate (and I suppose I still am).
The other thing that is stressing me out: I was g00gling and found out that some breech babies have neurological problems, hip dysplasia, down syndrome, etc.
Other notes from today's appointment:
- My BP is good
- Baby's heart rate = 146 bpm
- I've lost track of how much weight I've gained
- And I think that is all
