Glad to hear everyone's updates.
I'm 12 weeks + some days. We've told the kids and our parents, and no one has reacted as poorly as I might have thought (or they're keeping it to themselves). Although my dad said my dh better be sure and get 'gelded.' Lovely. Having 3 kids in 4 years brings it out in people I guess.
I'm dithering on a care provider...been seeing my OB from my last pregnancy who is a good guy and respectful of my autonomy but is certainly not thrilled about my planning a vaginal birth after 2 cesareans. He won't railroad me or kick me out of the practice, but I'd like to find someone a little more positive (and who still takes my insurance and has hospital privileges). Went to see a CNM today but she's not sure she can do it and I'm not sure my insurance will pay.
Feeling-wise, I am SO much better. I still get super tired around 1 or 2 pm and often have to nap for a minute, but I fight it because I am so groggy and can't wake up if I do nap. Also, dd has taken to waking up at 4, 4:30, 4:45, 5, 5:15, 5:20, 5:35, 5:45, and then I give up and get up with her at 6. Torture.
Nausea is mainly gone, except a tiny bit in the morning, and when I think about food I ate while nauseous, and whenever I see an ad for the Mc Donald's Snack Wrap (I have never eaten one, but they just sound so revolting
Got to see the babe again recently to check for a heartbeat. Apparently I have an anterior placenta and a retroverted uterus that's making it hard to catch. But the placenta is *not* over the prior cesarean scars, so hooray for that. Saw him/her jumping and waving arms, very sweet.
