So I'm sitting here reading on the computer, and i'm starting to feel a bit nauseous. Oh, and my vagina is feeling weird. So, I'm thinking, no, I'm not in labor, but maybe I don't have long to go?
My son was 42 1/2 weeks, I never felt B-H, I didn't start dialating until 38-39 weeks. He was a c/s after 36 hours of labor (distress and cord issues). He was 10 lbs. 8 oz. as well.
So, I'd like to have this one soon (VBAC), but not quite now. In a week would be good. Maybe I'm psyching myself up, but getting a bit nervous here.
On the upside, great incentive to get those bags packed!
What do you think?
