Yay!! It's my turn!
how does your dd feel about becoming a big sister?She seems happy about it, though she keeps saying she wants a little brother. Hope she's ok with a possible little sister! But, really, she doesn't seem to get it too much, but she has told me, "mommy, Brooke share toys with new little brother."
how is this pregnancy different than your last?The morning sickness. I had NONE with DD, but it hit me full-force this time. I did not like that at all. I'm only 10 weeks, so that's the only difference so far.
how did you find mdc?I'm friends with people on another board who are also on MDC. I came here after DD's birth looking for breastfeeding help and other low-supply mamas.
what do you know about your own birth?I know that my mom's water broke at home, and I made my first squeaks 6 hours later. I came out navy blue due to a double nuchal around my neck. Funny enough, DD also had a double nuchal.
i know you're planning on a vbac, any fears/anxieties?My biggest fear is the VBAC failing. With DD, I labored for 39 hours, and pushed for 3 only to have an urgent c-section due to failure to descend. DD was wrapped up in her cord but close to the placenta. Something totally and completely out of my and the OB's control. So, I'm afraid that I'll end up laboring for a long time and whatnot only to need another c-section. To be honest, I'm not 100% committed to a VBAC due the possibility of failure, just because a failed VBAC could be catastrophic. A repeat c-section isn't ideal, but it sounds much better than a uterine rupture and dead baby, kwim?
what's been the best and worst thing about this pregnancy so far?Worst: morning sickness/nausea
Best: Just being pregnant period!
favorite cookie flavor?Ooooo, that's a tie between gingersnaps and snickerdoodles
have you ever won a prize in a contest?I've won a door prize before, does that count?! I went to a crop night at a scrapbooking store, and I ended up winning a prize. I forgot what the prize was, but I was so happy to have finally won something!!
what are you wearing on your feet right now?NOTHING! I should be wearing socks, but I'm a rebel.
who was the last person you talked to on the phone?DH
the last person you e-mailed?A mommy from my daughter's playgroup
the last person you IMd with?long-time friend from college
the last person you wrote a letter to?My grandmother... she's probably the ONLY person I write letters to since everyone else has email!
