28 Weeks

Not much new to update except that baby A is still transverse...making that the third appointment in a row. Tonight I had a feeling in my lower abdomen (not really a contraction) that reminded me of going into labor and when that happens my body tenses up and I start shaking. I just get so terrified of that intense pain. Fortunately my labors are fast, but I'm not one of those lucky women who seem to just breeze through labor. I usually say some things I probably shouldn't and tend to panic in the end so I question myself every time as to why I did this to myself again. The only reason I'm saying this is because I don't think I can do this birth with nothing to help me...meaning some form of drug. I'm aware that if I have to have a c-section the decision will be made for me so I'm not putting too much thought into it, but nevertheless, I am nervous!

Anjali was transverse until the last 2 weeks . . . then she went feet down- Damn it! If you end up with a section, honestly, it's not as bad as you're thinking. I swear! If not, feel free to take something to help. No one will judge you and if they do give them my number :)

I'm feeling like Baby A is transverse again. Time will tell.

If you afraid of being afraid, you might consider hiring a doula. They are specially trained to help you feel calm and confident. But if you're going to take anything, just go straight to epidural. None of the other crap works at all.

Epidurals are AMAZING! Wouldn't have a baby without one.
