As of Yesterday when I went to the Dr's I still have not made any progress. I'm stuck at a 1, a 1 people- no effacement, nada!! These contractions and cramping are a waste of time. I do realize being at a 1 means merely nothing in the labor world. I could go any day, my water could break out of no where or I could start contractions. I realize this. As of yesterday though, I was actually given a deadline. My OB and I had set up a tentative date of the 9th for a scheduled csection, (which I do not want).. The date would be cool, but the csection not so much. I'm trying to go for VBAC this time around. Seems like the world and M are working against me! So I'm gonna work against them!! I have a scheduled acupressurist appt. to get this baby started. They say that 6 of 6 women who get this go into labor within 24 hours. and this is exactly what I'm hoping for!! Lets hope they are right.. and again I realize that just because labor starts doesn't guarantee me an actual vaginal delivery, that I so hope for and want so badly. I'm hoping that with this thrust, my body will hopefully throw itself into labor and take over from there.. I guess we will see..
BABY?? No BAbY??? that is the question..
And I guess with this last deperate measure if nothing comes of it, I will accept what I'm dealt and have the csection with a smile on my face and be thankful that at the end of this journey I will have a sweet new baby boy!! A brother for Tristan and a new son for the hubby and I.
