Well, I’m just back from my 35 week scan and I’m very pleased to report that all is well
Baby is in a really awkward position…….bottom first ……so this explains why my baby is being so mean to me and literally kicking me in the groin.
Babs weighs nearly 5 lbs and doc has confirmed a date for my section, which I’m keeping a secret for now (ha ha)…. and after a lot of thought and discussion, we have also confirmed that I will be having my tubes tied while I’m on the table !!!
And, while I know this decision is the best for us (medically and financially) I’m a little bit sad that my baby days will well and truly be over after this little bundle arrives.
Its not a decision that has come lightly to us, I mean we never even considered this option initially !
When my doctor asked me at my 12 week scan if we had thought about contraception, I immediately chirped “it’s a bit late don’t you think !!!!!”. He then very calmly informed us that after 3 sections, it really wouldn’t be safe to have another, and that we should give it some serious thought.
So after a lot of talking and thinking and of course some googling, this is the decision we’ve made – I know a lot of people have differing views on the subject, but hand on heart we know this is best for us
And if any of you lovely ladies (and gents of course) have any advice on the subject, its more than welcome !
