Tomorrow is my 26th birthday and yesterday I got a very faint, very surprise . I'm still in shock, even though I've suspected it for the past week. We have 3 kiddos already, Eli (6), Jack (4.5), and Claudia (13months). I'm a little nervous to be posting here, we had two losses before getting pg with Claudia and I've had some faint spotting (which is actually normal for me, I had regular periods until 6 months with E, and 3 months with J and C, but it still wigs me out-especially after the losses).

I would love to have a VBAC and am going to start looking into it here (we moved to a different state last year, I'm not sure on the "rules" at this hospital). Eli was an emergency c/s at 31 weeks (pre-e and hellp), Jack was a "planned" c/s at 40 weeks (breech-and I was didn't educate myself like I should have), and Claudia was another emergency c/s at 28 weeks (low fetal blood pressure/IUGR/mild pre-e). Hopefully we'll get to term again, it was wonderful being able to hold and nurse Jack right away.

Anyone else still nursing? Claudia still nurses a lot, I'm really hoping this pregnancy doesn't cause her to wean but I must admit I have no experience with nursing while pregnant (I weaned Eli at 6 months ).

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Welcome and congrats!!!!! I am also still nursing - my dd is 3 yo. I am actually sorta hoping she WILL wean, lol. I had to wean my second ds while pg with dd because I just couldn't stand the pain. We'll see what happens this time around!

What pregnancy adventures you've had! I hope you get your wish for a VBAC--there are so many women here (on the chat boards) who have had repeated C/S and then had successful VBACs. You might even want to check out some of the VBAC birth stories--some of them are so inspirational!! Plus, I'm sure a few of the VBAC moms could point you toward some great resources.

It seems you're in good company as far as the nursing/pregnant status goes--it seems like so many people here in March are nursing!

Congratulations, and happy belated birthday!

Hi, and congratulations!

I'm still nursing my 20-month-old ds, and just kind of waiting to see what happens.
