So here I am at home. Davin went back to work for the last couple hours of the day to wrap things up for being out the next couple weeks. I'm waiting until family is off of work to make the calls for childcare and visitors tomorrow. The plan is to have a repeat cesarean at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
I'm still wrapping my mind and emotions around it. I've put a lot of work into trying to have a successful VBAC, but things are not in my favor. However, I don't want to put baby in any risk just so I can experience the empowerment of a vaginal birth. But surgery has risks, too, and I'm not looking forward to being cut open again. On the other hand it's nice to keep things intact "down there" and I've always healed nicely from a cesarean.
Tomorrow is Dad's birthday. A grandchild for your birthday is a nice gift!
The next post will have baby pictures.
