She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
Because that makes it better?
Ain't it just strange what a woman will do...
I've got a fever...
But after having a c-section and living in an area with hospitals that have outlawed VBACs I put that idea out of my head.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Very sorry to hear that. We had a c-section on our first (she was face up in the birth canal, but no one figured this out until it was too late.), but were fortunate enough to have a successful VBAC on the 2nd (with a different and much better OB). But that was in CA -- I didn't even think to check whether they even do VBAC's here in AL. Something to think about when we go for three.
eric, the stats were fascinating to me. out of all the searches that direct to my blog, you know what #1 is? "mango boobs"!

It's really the most backasswards thing. A repeat c-section STILL carries more risk to a mother and baby with an otherwise healthy pregnancy than a VBAC, but that whole rare risk of uterine rupture is bandied about like it's a severe risk to anyone who has had a CS for any reason and I think a lot of ill-informed women are pressured into repeat CSs with scare tactics. The entire surgical birth culture in this country really gets my hackles up. We have a very high rate of infant mortality, so obviously all the c-sections aren't the solution.
I pretty much lost control over things the moment I walked into the hospital. They put me on the clock and when I wasn't progressing perfectly to their timeline they intervened. Mistake #1 was letting them give me pitocin (women who go from 4cm to 10 in 40 minutes do NOT need pitocin--damned impatient asshats with their schedules...).
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Zoom, you were probably caught between the office manager calling about "how much longer" and the OR wanting to know how much to delay the case ...
I am a nurse and know the healthcare system a little. Oh, it is also called Health care INDUSTRY. I get uneasy when I get sick ...
