Goodbye for Now...

Hello sweet girls...

I just wanted to leave a little MIA note, and let all my peasie and bloggy friends know that it will be a bit before I'm back into the cyberworld.

I went to the Dr. yesterday for my weekly checkup, and found out some interesting news. As I had said before, the Dr. wanted to "check me" yesterday to see if I would be ready for an induced labor next weekend. As she was checking me she could not find the head..or a foot for that matter...so she gave me an ultrasound, and after ten minutes of looking and being confused the Dr. discovered that Miss Difficult was breached. Not the normal breech where toesies are at the bottom, and head is at the top...but like diagonal. Imagine the head under your left rib cage, and the feet down at your right hipbone...everything is Ok...but it was such a surprise.

So....I will have a scheduled C-Section Thursday, July 27th @ 12 noon. I had both Bing and Jude naturally, so I am totally OK with things going this way. This has helped me plan everything out, and given me a sense of control about alot of things.

I am nervous. I am just so scared. I want everything to go OK. I want her to be healthy. I want to be coherent, and know what's going on. I just keep thinking these negative thoughts. I feel like since I already have two healthy AND beautiful children...will i really get another? And will it REALLY be a girl? I just have so much STUFF going on in my head. I just want peace of mind.

Any love you all give me will be much appreciated...I'm normally the smart ass, the one being so sarcastic its sickening, but well this time...I need all of you to do that...make me laugh...encourage me...just tell me its gonna be alright....

So...Miss Marley Jane Valentine Wren will be here in about 146 hours.

Hi there! I lurk on your blog sometimes. I got the link from Vivian's blog - viv in australia.
I'm australian too.
What prompted me to post was the name you've chosen - My daughter has Valentine as one of her 2nd names, as does my niece. They were both named after my father Valentine.
I had 3 sons before having a daughter and I found it hard to believe I had a girl too.
You and baby will be just fine I'm sure. My sister has had 2 caesars and it was a lot easier for her, both times, than I would've expected.
Good luck to you all.

Missy said...

C-sections aren't so bad.
just relax.
Baby Marley will be fine.
She has to be.
and so will you.

Heather said...

our brains work just alike. after being upset i was pg i obsessed about the babies health. i already had 3 healthy beautiful kids. what were the chances i'd get another especially after my earlier behavior when i realized i was pg. but, i did. i got another perfectly healthy and definitely beautiful baby. i am ridiculously spoiled by God and i think you are too. no worries.

make sure you let the dr. know how you want things to go. you probably already have, but she should know you don't want to be knocked out if possible, etc.

sending cyber hugs,

You're going to do great. She's going to be beautiful. And even if she ended up ugly (which she WON'T!!) you'd still love her to pieces. That's just how it works. :) I hope everything goes smoothly and wonderfully for you!

maggie holmes said...

the same thing happened to me with my third baby except they didn't figure it out until i was about 8 hours into labor! i had a c-section and everything went great. it was scary when you don't know what to expect but it was still a good experience. the recovery is different but you will be fine!
take care and enjoy that baby!!

Crystal said...

Just realized it is Thursday and I am wishing you positive baby birth vibes!! Sprinkling the happy baby pixie dust too.

Welcome to the world Miss Marley Jane Valentine (soon)!

Crystal and baby Zoe

Both my children were lying "diagonally" and I had both by c-section. I actually wanted a c-section also because of nerves for giving birth. Don't be afraid of the c-section, I didn't have any pain under the operation and none after, and my two boys are perfect! I wish you the best of luck!

Lu said...

congratulations on the little one. blessings to you and the family.
