3/19 update:
He flipped!! Please send good thoughts, hoping he stays head down for 2 more weeks!!!!!

***
I am scheduled for an induction at 37 weeks. If this little stinker doesn't flip in the next two weeks, it will be a c-section.

I am petrified. Please talk me down!!

EDIT: yes, I have to induce at 37 weeks because I have cholestasis, which is very dangerous for the baby. It will have to be a c section if the baby is still sideways (unrelated to the cholestasis).

If you have to I will say get up and move around as soon as possible after surgery. I have had 4.

why at 37 weeks?

my DD turned literally during labor i was fully dialated and she turned and came out.

i dont see why they are doing it early?

I have had two and to me they weren't bad and the second one healed even faster than the first.

a planned c section is easy peasy. my first was an emergency, it was rushed and not...ideal. my second was planned, and was great. good luck!

It's not that bad, if you have anxiety you can ask the anesthesiologist for something.  My friend's baby just flipped at 37 weeks, there is still time.  How come they are inducing you at 37 weeks?

I had a c section and it wasn't that bad. Dd was born around 1 pm and come midnight I was up and heading to the nicu.

It's not that bad, mama! I promise. Like another mama said, just make sure you get up and move as soon as you can and you'll do just fine. I forget I even had surgery and it's been 9 months since my daughter was born.
