Hello.... My name is Rachael, I live in Michigan, and I will be 40 in April. OH MY!
My EDD is July 11. This will be # 3 for me, and also # 3 for my DH. I have 2 boys 14 and 16, and he has 2 girls 14 and 16.
This was VERY unplanned. We were just married on Sept 1.
I am not accepting this very well and have been very emotional, and really a pain in the A** for my hubby. Nevermind all the Yuck for the last 2-3 weeks..
I want to be excited, and accepting. I am trying. Just a very big adjustment. The sooner these thoughts turn happy, the better. I am hoping that once these hormones stabilize, the feelings will too..
Looking forward to sharing along the way... first dr appt is Tuesday.. should be fun... never have had a male OB, not fond. But am in a new area, and went with a group. Comes with 4 male, 3 female.
My 1st DS was born CS he was footling breech, then 2 years later, I had an AWFUL VBAC experience with my 2nd DS. Overdue, by 4 days, induced with pitocin, labored for what felt like 2 days, but in actuality was 29 hours. Water had been broken for almost 12 hours. Ended up getting an epidural. only took on one side, pushed for only an hour... 4th degree episiotimy, and pulled groin muscle. Couldnt walk for a week. worse than my CS by far!!
Honestly I have always had in my mind that if I "ever" had another, that I would immediately plan to schedule a CS..Ive told many other moms to be that.. . interesting now.. that I actually am ... that I just might not.. lol.
Good luck mamas...
