I knew I could count on you all to help. I needed people to say I was not crazy for turning a second attempt down. I just have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that it won’t work and that, worse, something complicated will happen at a hospital where I am not an established patient and where my wishes/demands may not be met. And like many of you pointed out, there is time still if Chicken is meant to turn to do so on his or her own. I emailed Dr. Shannon this afternoon thanking her but declining. I explained my feelings and she wrote back within minutes saying she would do the same.
Furthermore, I want to ENJOY my last few days with Chicken on the inside. I want to relish the time that no one but me gets to carry baby. And I would like to get some sleep while the only creature demanding my attention each morning is that soft fuzzy one above. Sweet Yum Yum, our days of quiet morning snuggles are numbered. Let’s make the last few days count!
