This morning I met with the OB who will be doing the c-section. I loved her. We clicked right away. She was so unlike any other doctor I've seen - she took the time to talk with me and answer all of my questions. There was no rush at all. I am glad she will be with us on birth day!
I told her I was working on a birth plan, and she asked me what I wanted. I told her I wanted the baby with me in the OR, and she said that was perfectly fine unless the baby was starting to get too cold. She said they do not have a mirror equipped in the OR, but she would look into lowering the drape during birth. She had never done it before, so she she wanted to research it first and get back to me. I would love the drape to be lowered - and she knows this - but if it cannot be done, I will be okay with it. As long as I can see my baby right after they pull him or her out (during my c-section with Mason, I asked the doctors if they could hold him over the drape after he was out so I could see him, they said "No") which she said they will do. I also told her Jason and I want to announce the sex ourselves.
We finally have a time for the c-section: 11 AM on July 14th. It feels really strange and final to have the actual time I should be entering the OR. T-minus 6 weeks left.
