Hello ladies :) I just thought I'd come and find out how many of you were able to sucessfully birth a baby that the doctor deemed "sunndy side up" or medically Posterior (meaning the baby's head is down, but their face is up)
The reason I ask is because my first born was sunnyside up. I had HORRIBLE back labor that lasted 12 hours and of coures my epidural ran out shortly before I needed to push so I felt everything. I pushed for 3 hours and dd wouldn't budge! Anyways, needless to say I ended up with an emergency c section because of her heartrate dropping drastically and had the longest and most painful recovery :(
Pregnant with dd #2 (i'm 32 weeks) I knew from the very beginning that I absolutely would not be having another c section unless medically necessary, so I found an OB who is wonderful and supportive of VBACS. I am thrilled to have the chance to birth vaginally again, however at the same time I'm absolutely terrified!
Because of my firt experience I'm so afraid that if I get to L&D and they tell me that she is sunny side up again i'll IMMEDIATELY feel defeated and just want to give up. I promise you with my first I pushed with all my might and that little girl wouldn't move an inch. I know there are women who have been able to delivery posterior babies but either i'm a wimp or i just CAN"T do it. ( I am not proud of this by any means)
Anyways, what do I do if I go to deliver and baby is posterior? Do I just say screw it give me a c section? I don't think I can handle laboring, pushing and then STILL ending up in the OR.
Share you're sunny side up baby, or crazy birthing experiences. I need hope!
