GRRRR!!! DD just hit the refresh button on my mouse and wiped my post! I realized that I'd missed a whole bunch of posts. Let me retrack myself...
Kimberly, yikes about the hospital bills! My DD was $35,000, and I thought she was expensive. Thank goodness for insurance!
Traci, you are doing so great! You can do this! I know it in my heart! Soon, we'll be logging on and reading your beautiful birth story. Can't wait for that moment. Keep up the EPO and maybe try to have some sex? Have you tried putting lots of pillows under your hips, so DH doesn't have to lean on you at all? It doesn't have to be romantic, just get the job done, you know?
And, Christine! You can do this too! I'm so impressed that you're exercising still! That will help you so much, overall. As for EPO, I hear it's more effective internally (vaginally) than orally, so maybe try some capsules, if you get really worried. They're kind of slimy, but they seem to be doing something for me.
Lena, glad the plumber came by finally! And, great job about Sara gaining her weight back! What did you do to treat her cord?
Carla, the birth ball is definitely a good way to help babies come down the birth canal. I try to spend as much time on mine as possible, but with this new swelling thing I've got, it's a hard choice. Elevate my feet? Help the baby engage? Decisions, decisions... You'll get back to where you were. It will happen for you, I know!
Here's hoping all of us VBAC'ing mamas go into labor before the clocks start ticking too loudly! That would be quite an accomplishment for us all to achieve! We can do this!
