Unless I labour Spontaneously (or already have!)

on January 28, 2015

I’m  writing this at 35+3 but plan on scheduling it for January. I fully plan on attempting VBAC (we have the choice here that after one c-section, we can have electives ever after even if there is no medical need), but have decided on an elective section if I reach term plus 12. I could wait longer, I might have to fight medical staff to wait longer, and I already feel fed up of pregnancy. Those two weeks after I reached my due date with Elvis were awful so I really don’t see myself wanting to prolong it past T+12. Unless I labour spontaneously.

Not that I like, at 35 weeks knowing the exact date my baby could be born. I mean, the date for the section could be their date of birth (unless I labour spontaneously) and I find that weird. I kind of find that wrong. For me. In my head. Maybe if I booked that date for an induction, I’d feel better because that could take longer than a day, the date of birth would still be unknown. Unless I’m too ill or there’s a massive rush of emergencies, my section will be on the date booked. Unless I labour spontaneously.

I could have opted for the induction, I think the catheter, physical induction sounds nicer than the hormonal one I had last time, but if interventions lead to more interventions (a common thought regarding labour) then the induction could lead to an emergency section. Wouldn’t a planned section be nicer, calmer, more relaxed and enjoyable than one termed an emergency? Unless I labour spontaneously.

But I still don’t like knowing, potentially, my child’s date of birth already. And I’m refusing to tell anyone of the date other than hubby’s bosses. And I’ll continue hoping that I will labour spontaneously and have a surprise date of birth!
