RCS is a repeat c-section.
PL, it must be a bit more unsettling not being totally sure of exactly when you are due. My BFF had that issue with her 6th DD who was born at the end of June. She never had a proper cycle after weaning DD5 when she found out she was pregnant again, so she had no LMP to go on and had no idea how far along she was when she found out. They were UP/UCing and so she just had to wait out all the potential dates until she finally went into labor. Nobody stays pregnant forever, but even with baby no 6 she got to feeling impatient and frustrated. Glad you are enjoying these final days with just your DS. That's what I'm trying to focus on doing too.
FischK, hope you don't get all that pressure you're expecting. Hopefully labor will kick in soon and you won't have to even talk about induction or RCS. I'm fortunate in that my MW has so far been as laid back as DH & I about those topics. I want to wait as long as possible before we go down that road, so I totally get where you are coming from.
Angie, hope the sickness/nausea is the start of labor for you.
I haven't had any contractions since Thursday, but I've been sleeping a lot instead, just not at night. All I want to do during the day is sleep, and I've been taking naps whenever DS has, but that means nothing is getting done around here. I really need to catch up with some cleaning so I'm going to try and skip the naps today. I'll be 40 weeks tomorrow, so still potentially another 2 weeks to go.
I really wanted to have this baby sometime during week 39, as the stats for VBAC show greatest success rates at 39 weeks. However it seems like this baby has other ideas. I did go to 40+5 with DS so it won't surprise me if I still have about another week before this baby finally gets the show on the road. I've been telling DH the whole pregnancy that this baby is going to come on Labor Day, so by that only a week to go.
I do hope this group becomes extinct in this coming week because we are all snuggling up with our babies in our arms instead of in our bellies. I don't even mind being the last one standing if I get to hold my baby by this time next week.
Hope you all are having a good day and get to be in labor land really soon.
