Thursday is the big day!

Hi everyone. I've been lurking this section for a few days and figured I'd post a thread for support and prayers.

Early Thursday morning, the 22nd, I go in for my 2nd c-section. I have a breech baby this time around again. My pelvis doesn't cooperate with getting their heads engaged so they like flip around a lot.

I haven't talked about it much online because of the judgements, but I have an amazing support network irl that has cheered me on in my decision. And now I get to be part of the support network here as well.

There is so much to my story, and I may share bits an pieces of it as time goes on. I'm just a little leery yet of being so public online.

If you have questions maybe that can spark a fun discussion. <3 Thanks for any prayers and thoughts.

I'll be praying you have an uneventful c-section with a quick recovery. Feel free to share as little or much as you want - no judgements from me. I've had two c-sections and am so happy DS now has a c-section fourm because I know I had tons of questions before and after I had both of my c-sections (funny how we moms seem to forget all those delivery details ). Congrats on baby #2!
