http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/955297.aspx?p=0 Part one is above Down deep I knew I would die. Time went by and I went to a dr app.on the friday before Sheilana was born.He had me set up to enter the hosp on sunday evening before 7pm and I would have the section on Monday.I drove home freaking out...I had the idea that if I could have my old Dr that had sectioned me for Caleb and Micah(my last 2)that I somehow had a chance.I got home and spilled my guts to my husband(I had not told him how serious the pregnacy was or any of this that I was going through..he worked so hard..I didn't want him to have months of worry)He told me to call my old dr.I didn't think he would take me at the last minute with the severity of my condition .I called crying to Donna his receptionist that I'd become friendly with and she said wait.Then the dr was on the line"Ok Raydene tell me whats going on."I told him everything along with the fact that he might not get paid for a long time cause the program wouldn't pay for out of state drs.He listened quietly then said"Raydene,go get your records(ultrasounds) from the dr and be here this afternoon as soon as you can make it(it'd take too long to send for them) so I can examine you.." My husband and I drove the hour 15 minutes each way to get the records then the half hour to my doc in vermont.He set me up to enter the hosp on mon and have surgery to deliver on Tue.Would you have kept it from your husband?Husbands how would you done?

I don't think I would or could have kept this from my other half - I would have to have had the support and care he offered me to get so far in the first place - you must have been a wreck - if you don't start your life story soon sweets I am going to get sooo annoyed with you! xxx

I wouldn't have kept anything that serious from my husband, and I am so happy your doctor was there for you,and you most doctors probably wouldn't.

I had gotten to know him pretty well with the other babies being sections..He ,his partner,and all the staff are a great bunch.He still asks how Sheilana is when I see him...17 years later!

Well firstly I do not think that I would of told my husband as it is my body and I want to feel confident in who is operating on me and so I would of gone with my gut feeling to who I would of felt comfortable with. As even though we are married we do only have one body.

Yes it is very different and we feel uncomfortable with a new doctor going to do our c-sections, as I had two different doctors but once I had the second one I felt a lot better under him and he did a marvellous job. No I would of told my husband how I felt, after all it is my body.
