Adilyn Grace is here :)
I know it has been a while since I have been on. The hospital had this site blocked and when I got home I didscovered that I had forgotten to pay the internet bill :blush:. I am just going to c&p from my fb so here is the story.

I am going to start this a little before the actual delivery time for those who don't know. Adilyn was transverse almost the entire pregnancy. At 38 weeks she decided to turn head down (confirmed by u/s) but at 39 weeks she flipped back to transverse. A few days later I saw the mw and she suggested we try an external version. I agreed. I went in on thursday July 1st and they tried to turn her but she wouldn't budge. We all agreed that since she had just recently flipped I would go home and try some things and wait to see if she would go back head down. If she went head down I was to go into the hossy to get an abdominal belt to try and prevent her from turning again. Before I left the hospital the mw checked me and I was not quite a 1 and not effaced either. So I went home and did all kinds of funny things to try and get her to turn (gave my mom a good laugh). On Monday I could tell she was trying to turn but I was unsure of rather it was head down or butt down. When I felt her turn I started squatting trying to get her to go into my pelvis. I had already decided that even if she was frank breech I wanted to still go vaginal. Late that night I started having mild contractions and had convinced myself she was probably head down. So I went to the hospital so I could get the abdominal belt, (she would turn transverse if I sat down at all). They wanted to do some fetal monitoring so I stood the whole time. They brought in the u/s machine and we found out she was butt down but not really down. When the nurse checked me I was at a 5 and she could not feel any baby parts. We waited a little longer and the mw on call called me. At this point Adilyn had flipped completely sideways again!! I felt like even though I hated to have a csection that at this point there was not much else I could do. A baby can't come out sideways. So I consented to the csection. I freaked out a little when they numbed me so they had to give me something for the anxiety and it knocked me out. When I woke up though my husband was holding our beautiful baby girl! She was 8lbs7oz and 20.7inches long born at 4:56am tuesday july 6th. Everything looks wonderful with her, except her hearing. They said she has some fluid, which we will get checked out on the 27th.

Stephanie, your baby is beautiful. I, too, was unconscious for my first daughter's birth, and although at times I felt I missed out on her birth, the point is, is that I finally had my little beauty in my arms. I hope you don't feel any thoughts of disappointment, but are thankful as you hold your daughter in wonder. Congrats on her birth. She is precious.

She is beautiful, congratulations! Glad she made it safely and hope her hearing problem is nothing but a little fluid. Big hugs to you!!

I have no regrets at all. I did what I could to get a vaginal birth but in the end I had to choose what was best for baby. I was glad i slept through it though.
