Penciled In…

May 6th, 2008

I’m so glad I had the good sense to write “Baby’s Birthday!” in pencil on my calendar.   Casey and I had an incredible meeting with my OB yesterday, and after a full exam and conversation, he sees no reason why I can’t try for a natural birth!   I am floating.   I feel like this 20 pound bowling ball I’ve been hauling around is suddenly lighter and the pep has come back to my step!

Assuming I don’t go into labor super early, instead of the scheduled c-section for June 24th (the 39 week mark), he has scheduled a complete sonogram to measure the baby and check the positioning.   Since it’s too dangerous to induce, we have re-scheduled the section for my actual due date, giving me another week to go into labor on my own.   I know that there is still a chance of a c-section, but just knowing that it’s possible and that I have the support of both my OB and Casey makes me believe that it can happen!   Hurray!

I’m sure I’m going to be writing compulsively about this for the next seven weeks, so bear with me.   By the way, for all of my pregnant readers out there, check out the book The Baby Catcher, by Peggy Vincent.   Absolute inspiration.   I’m almost done with it,  so I’ll post a review sometime next week, but suffice to say it’s a gripping and uplifting read for anyone about to have (or thinking of having!) a baby.

    What wonderful news! I’m sure the relief alone makes you feel so much better!

    I will be thinking about you as I undergo my 4th scheduled c-section on the 27th of June if not before. 🙄 I’ve got a big boy in there and they are going to start doing ultrasounds next week.

    I know this is my last baby and I’ve always yearned to have a VBAC but due to gestational diabetes it’s not possible. So, I’m thankful for what I have and realize that it’s beyond my control.

    God bless and good luck with your plans and know that whatever’s meant to be is meant to be. That’s what gets me through life since I’m a MAJOR planner and tend to be a little OCD.:shock:
