What would you do?
33 weeks 3 days
We (Mr. Duck, M and I) need opinions here, and because I don’t want to bias you, I will not give you our opinion, other then to say that M and I are on the same page.
It’s about how the babies come into this world.
Baby A is sitting pretty all ready and waiting to appear in the proper head down position, but Baby B (at 32 weeks half a pound heavier then Baby B) is sitting butt first (breech position).
Here are the 2 options:
Option 1: Planned C-section
Option 2: Vaginal Birth for baby A, trying to turn Baby B, if he turns and is happy then he can follow is sister, if he is not happy or does not turn it’s an emergency C-section.
Note that M and I are on the same page about Baby B being born breach, we both feel that it is just too risky, given my personal family history of bilateral congenital hip dysplasia (dislocated hips) and the possibility of cord injury. Remember, we’ve been trying to have these children for over 5 years (and I’ve been diagnosed with being infertile 13 years ago) all that time, energy and not to mention 6 figures in cash means that we NEED to take 2 babies home, we love them, they are our children, and we need for them to be okay.
I won’t say anything more because I really really want your personal opinions, and you don’t have to be pregnant, you just have to be empathetic, what would you do if you were me (or M)?
(note all else is fab with the babies and M’s belly is now measuring 39 weeks the largest she has ever been for a pregnancy – but she still looks all cute just total belly!).
