Thinking of you ladies. Momma2libby i think you had a water breaking scheduled wed. so i'm sure by now you have had your LO. i hope everything is going ok and that you got your : and if not...that you had a beautiful experience anyways. Truly thinking of you and looking for an update everytime i come on here!

Hi! I'm here... We had Naomi Rose by a repeat c-section on Wednesday May 14. While I am still grieving the natural birth that I had wanted, I am so very happy that she was healthy and that I am recovering well. We were discharged at 24.5 hours!!! The birth was a better experience than last time. My doctor let me have my birth photographer in the O.R. and I got to smell/touch/kiss on Naomi for a good 10 minutes before they took her to the nursery. She was born at 1:38 and I was nursing her in recovery at 2:05. I couldn't have asked for a better ceaseran birth.

I'm very glad the c-section went smoothly for you guys. I was hoping you'd get a chance to have your VBAC, but I know it doesn't always work out (even if you DO go into labor on your own!).

I did NOT want to be last!!! Oh well.. yeah after 4 days of start and stop labor with broken waters.. things started turning bad so I made the difficult decision to for-go my uc plans and headed to the hospital ~ also after several days of consulting midwife and ob friends. Long story short (i'll post a seperate birth story soon) baby boy born 10:05pm 5-15-08. 10 pounds 13 ounces, 20 inches.. Bowie James. Gorgeous red hair!!
