It’s just a matter of time before Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi gives birth to her baby girl!
It’s been an anticipating journey so far as she prepares for motherhood with the baby’s dad, Slade Smiley. And now the reality star has given her fans an update on Instagram about what she plans to do in the delivery room- as well as the emotions that brought her to some hardships
Rossi wrote in a new post that she wanted to share a story with her followers that resulted in a difficult decision to make.
“I had a really tough day yesterday because of having to make a super hard decision after my doctors appt. but after a lot of contemplation, crying, struggling, (and based on the medical pros and cons) the Doctor, Slade and I have decided a c-section is going to be the safest thing for me and baby tomorrow,” she wrote.
Rossi continued: “Doctor said I am only dilated 1 cm and I guess I have a ‘cervix of steel.’ so it’s not really cooperating at this point and just my pelvic exam yesterday was so beyond painful that I almost passed out, then started to hyperventilate because of that, which then led to a panic attack!”
Rossi added more details about centimeters and safety precautions when giving birth. It sounds like she did her research and is making the best decision for herself and the little girl along the way.
Let’s hope that as a mom, Rossi’s hilarity will still ensue.
