    I've been having weekly acupuncture since 35wks with 2 sessions last week. I am now sitting at 41+2 (41+6 by their dates). I went in for monitoring on Wednesday, all was good. I then discussed all my concerns with one of the ob's on at the time. DH and I then spent the evening talking it all over and decided that at my monitoring appointment on Friday i would book a c-section. This morning i got a call from the head ob at the hospital and she said that after hearing of my case and concerns she is happy to slot me in first thing tomorrow morning. So, i'm having a baby tomorrow!

    I felt desperate to experience natural childbirth. I felt like I couldn't be a mother if i had never experienced it (crazy, i know!) I told DH that and he looked at me and said 'Are you for real?! You grew it, you delivered it and then we raise it. That delivery part is the smallest part of the whole experience.' I then spent a lot of time reading the positive c-section stories and articles based on positive c-section experiences and i finally found myself where i am now. At peace with it all. We get to go in tomorrow and bring our baby girl into the world, calmly and on my terms. An experience much different to my ds's birth.

    Will i regret not waiting longer? Maybe. But i will have 2 gorgeous children that i could never ever regret! Thank you for all your replies x

    You are in a good place, you will be fine. I will be thinking of you tomorrow, your story sounds similar to mine, your husbands rationale the same as my husband - and he is right, delivery is such a small part. I found my second csection amazingly calm and it healed a lot of the mental anguish from the first. Just breath, take in every moment, and enjoy those amazing newborn moments. I can't wait to hear your news!!

    Your bubs will be here soon - great news!

    In the end all that matters is healthy bub, healthy mum.

    I've always found the term 'birth plan' to be quite amusing - of course all women would want a baby the quickest, easiest/comfiest, med-free way possible - but this is the real world and whilst it is a good idea to talk through an ideal plan and goals to aim for it doesn't always happen so we have to be so open to what could happen when we give birth and the different options available.

    All the best tomorrow. Can't wait to hear your news.

    Thanks for the well wishes. Our beautiful baby girl was born today at 1.03pm via c-section. Adalyn (Addie) Elizabeth weighed in at a nice 11pd 1oz. Both doing great
