No problem! At about 32 weeks, you're still quite far from the due date, so it seems like c-section discussion may be a bit premature, no? Since my little guy always seemed to be at around the 40th-50th percentile on ultrasounds I didn't need to deal with c-section or induction pressure due to size. However, there were plenty of other reasons why doctors wanted me to "prepare myself" for those possibilities. I guess I approached those discussions with an honest, respectful tone, while also maintaining confidence in my own desires. I hope for the very best for you and your baby! Feel free to message if you'd like!
Hi Angela, I'm glad that my birth story was inspiring for you! I really wanted to share with the community here because I was hearing so much of the same story while I was pregnant (induced at 38 weeks... horrific pitocin pain... emergency c-section) that I wanted others to know that there is another way. Type 1 diabetes does not necessarily mean that you will need a "highly managed" birth. Best of luck to you in the final months of your pregnancy!!
Angela! How are you doing?! I hope all is well! I haven't been on TuD in SO long that I just noticed that you wrote on my wall back in March!!! Too long of a break from TuD! I've just been super crazy busy with my 3 kiddos, dogs, horses and a brand new kitten! :-) I hope you're well!!!
She is kicking around so much these past two days. I can't believe it. :)
We don't have internet at our new house (we moved in a little over a week ago) but should be getting internet on thursday. So I'll be able to log into Facebook then. Just saying hi!
Hi Angela - I am so sorry for the delay, I haven't been on here in forever!! I actually live closer to Schenectady then Albany, next time you are in the area maybe we could meet! I would be happy to answer any questions you have about pregnancy. I was so fortunate to have a very easy one with no issues at all and now I have a beautiful healthy daughter. I am on facebook way more so ifyou want to contact me that way, that would be fine. Hope all is well and to hear from you soon.
