much better now

I think just writing that last post made me feel a little better, and also I got a very lovely email from a friend who I had reached out to with some excellent advice that made me realize that I didn’t really have a firm grasp on my options. Becuase I CAN decline the version. But I don’t really know what that would look like as far as consequences go. So I’ve been making calls and, even though they’re just confirming what I already assumed (uh, nobody will take a planned vaginal breech delivery), for some reason, that’s making me feel better.

I will be calling The Farm tomorrow. I’d do it right now but we’re on our way to the dinosaur show for FREE.

  1. Just b/c one person tells you it should be “this way” doesn’t mean it is that way FOR YOU. Go with your instinct here. These things are happening for a reason — though none of us can tell you why. Perhaps it’s to be more of a trailblazer? Perhaps it’s to be an example? A learning tool? Who knows, Sarah…but I wish you the best. Good luck in finding your peaceful spot — and once you find it — hold onto it and don’t let anyone take that from you.

    Like Lisa said — you do have choices. None of them typical, but choices nonetheless.

    You make me proud. Hang in there. YOU CAN DO THIS.

  2. I’m also very proud that you are realizing that the choice is yours! I know that you can still have the birth that you want to have. I’m anxious to see what the farm will say. That would be probably the coolest thing ever! If we have anymore kids, we have considered contacting them since the birth climate in Tallahasseee is awful and there is no way I’d be able to get a VBA2C without traveling.

    I’m praying for you and keeping my fingers crossed really tight!
