I swore "never again" this whole pregnancy and through the first week or two of recuperating from my cesarean and now I'm thinking it might still be worth it to do this thing a third time (second with the whole diabetes stress...) It helps that my husband seems to really want a third. We'll see how I feel in another year or two, when this little one starts talking back. ;)
I love that, Chapsie!   I had a lot of guilt with my first cesarean. I was angry. I felt cheated and poorly used and, while I adored my daughter intensely, I felt distanced from her because of the difficulties processing her birth and what led to it. And then I spent a lot of time feeling guilty, because I allowed the experience to drive that wedge between us for the first year or two of her life.

I loved Black Swan. It actually reminded me of my favorite anime, "Perfect Blue," which is also a fabulous psycho thriller.   Hang in there, sunshinelove! At 42+ weeks, you have to be getting close, right?

Astrid Elizabeth, 8 lbs, 14 oz, 22.5 inches, arrived at 8:09 am yesterday via (hastily) scheduled repeat cesarean. It was more and in many ways less than what I'd hoped for, but we are healthy and I am recovering apace. I just wish I could get this stupid heplock out of my hand. :P Congrats to our other new mamas.
Terrific news, Melany.
