In my last post I pointed out that these babies have been preferring breech and transverse positions. Well, that has recently changed. I now sense, and have somewhat confirmed from the nurses’ doppler trackings, that baby A is on my right, and baby B is on my left. If I were to guess, I’d say that they are both vertex. I saw my OB the other day, and he said that sounds about right – eventually transverse becomes uncomfortable for them.
I had a bit of a scare yesterday and was sent to L&D for monitoring. Thankfully, I wasn’t contracting (good, I didn’t think I was), and it wasn’t amniotic fluid that I leaked.
But I started thinking . . . the two times I’ve had needs after hours, I’ve been referred to an on-call OB. My OB has a solo practice with a CNM. It seems like all of the OBs in town pool together for call? I’m really uncomfortable with this arrangement and need to bring it up with my doc next appointment. Then I’ll likely write about Tribal Obstetrics, loosely modeled after the chapter of the same title in Dr. Wagner’s Born In the USA.
