deborah - I hope your intestines have settled down by now. Just not what you needed right now at all! Between what you've said here and on the IVF thread about your brother measuring very small and you being a very small person, it sounds like there's a decent chance your babies are just small because it's in their genes. Still not a total comfort, I know, but I think it makes sense not to expect them to be on the higher end of the scale. Anyway, hope those calories are staying in, and you get good news in a few weeks!
wissa - I'm sure there will come a time when I feel less excited about looking pregnant, but since I'm still at a point where people could conceivably just think I'm chubby and shouldn't be wearing such form-fitting clothes, it feels like a compliment. I guess I'm especially self-conscious about it since I randomly gained 15 lbs last year, after already being over my highest weight ever. I know I shouldn't care what other people think, but I do. Anyway, sorry you are not finding what you need for a care provider. As far as why you can't just "go along" - because you know there's no medically valid reason to. Submitting yourself and your baby to the risks of major surgery just because that's how the last one came out, when there's no indication of problems, doesn't make sense. That you're even put in a position where you may have to do that is really infuriating. I hope you can find an answer you're comfortable with. Or you can just come visit me in Houston - we have several VBAC-friendly docs in the area.
AFM, enjoying my 3rd day of taking things pretty easy and feeling pretty decent. Getting excited for dh to get home tonight. He has been very good about keeping in touch with me today, since he knows I worry about him snowboarding, and that I was not entirely on board with his little adventure. But he is on his way to the airport now, safe and very happy, so it seems to have worked out well. Still don't have my ultrasound scheduled due to some paperwork issues, but hopefully I will soon. Now I just need to convince myself to go clean out the fridge and finish cleaning up the house before I have to go get dh.
