I have struggled this past week and a half with the unknown outcome of this pregnancy, vaginal delivery or c-section. When my midwife first said to me that we might have to look at scheduling a c-section, I would have done just about anything to avoid a section. I still am doing my best to avoid a section, but I know God is giving me this trial to teach me about Himself.
I have had this easy pregnancy, and because of that, I think that I have everything under control. Guess what?! I don't; only God does. I have to keep reminding myself that God's plan is the best and if that means c-section, then all will be ok.
My cousin and I were talking on the phone the other night, and she was telling me about struggling with a situation and that ultimately it was her pride that was getting in her way. I had to stop and think, I am being proud that I want to experience labor. I want to do thins my way. Crazy, right? As long as baby and I are both healthy, should I be concerned about how baby gets here? Believe me, I am still doing what I can to fight off the c-section, but I am also doing what I can to fight off my trying to be in control instead of God. Worrying about what is beyond my control is not healthy either.
Would you do me a huge favor? Would you pray that this baby will flip so that I can deliver this baby without having to go through a c-section?
