    I was questioning whether I was leaving too early but the bigger I get the more exhausted I feel. I'm very comfortable with my decision to leave at 32 weeks at this point! Bubs is going through a growth spurt and my belly has gotten much bigger over the last two weeks which is partially why I'm so buggered. That and the endless nighttime toilet trips.

    There's no such thing as too early. Only what you're comfortable doing, and financially capable of. And screw anyone who says otherwise 🏼

    I'm 32 weeks now and boy would I love to stop now - but am working from home so can't complain (too much). I'm hoping to go to 37 1/2 weeks if I can. But each day I do consider sending in an email saying that's it I'm on leave!

    Obs mentioned today they will keep tracking bubs weight and if she's still getting bigger and bigger they may discuss inducing me at 39 weeks if I don't naturally go into labour by then.

    Had my MW appt today, they suggested I have an appt next week (rather than next fn) to discuss my stitch coming out and the fact that I'm still breech.
    Had some sad news that if I want to attempt a breech birth they would have to refer me to KEMH which I'm very much against (distance would *suck* for DH esp). So will have an appt to hash it out and get all the details without the speculation.

    Was talking about breech births today with obs mrs tugs. I don't think anyone likes them so I can understand only Kemh will attempt it. Obs was telling me about a set of twins where one was breech, one cephalic which is super dangerous for vaginal birth as they can lock together ... Bubs was breech the entire pregnancy then they did a scan the day before c-section was booked (as mum asked as she felt things were different) and breechy had turned. They induced later that day and both babies born vaginally.

    So there is always hope!

    Can the midwives attempt to do a turn? See if bubs will move?

    Ooo these little rascals already not going along with what mummy wants!

    Initially I was terrified of having a cs but since my placenta was low lying at the last scan I'm not so scared anymore. As long as bub is safe.

    I have actually been wondering if I would prefer a cs! I'm terrified of the pain!!

    I know I will be getting an epidural but from the number of friends that have said they couldn't sit for days afterwards - it's that pain I worry about.

    The word episiotomy sends chills down my spine!!!!

    Obs told me today though that a cs is the last resort with me though as with long term steroid use, my healing is really slow, so having everything heal properly and in a timely fashion would be a lot more difficult ...

    I agree episiotomy scares me also. A csect is also cutting through all the layers of your tummy so climbing in and out of bed or anything that uses tummy muscles is difficult for a few weeks after wards.

    It's one thing I wish I never had with my dd an episiotomy. I had to in the end as she was on her way out she tilted her head and got stuck so suction wouldn't work. I then didn't heal properly and had to get repaired 6 months later. The only reason I'm having a cs this time is because I required 2 blood transfusions with dd so OB doesn't want to risk it and plus bub is going to be big!!

    It's the epidural that scares me the most of all. But at this point everything about giving birth scares me if I think about it too much. CS, pain, tearing, episiotomy, epidural, bubs getting stuck... 😳
