Yeah, i am so happy to meet all of you. Soon enough we will be getting to know eachother much better as we commiserate the yucky stuff ("all the time" sickness, aches and pains) and celebrate the exciting stuff (first kicks, guessing the sex, picking names,preparing for birth)
I am 5 weeks. The due date predicter said June 23rd but with my singleton pregnancies i went 17 and 11 days past due date so i am thinking its more like July 7th. I will tell people mid July to keep them off my back there at the end.
This is my 4th pregnancy, #5 baby, and it will be my 2nd VBAC. Last time i went to the hospital and was very grateful because i was 9 cm, 100% effaced and my son was NOT engaged. They were afraid of prolapsed cord if my water were to brake so they slowly released the water with a pin prick and my sons head was able to engage and he popped out moments later. In the end it was a good experience and since i have had 3 all natural births at a hospital i figure i got the hospital thing under control. I would love a homebirth but they make it so difficult in Arizona. Its illegal even if i could find a Midwife to come from Phoenix or San Diego. I will probably start talking to lay midwifes to see if there is anyone willing so i at least explore my options but in the end i know i can handle the hospital.
I am feeling pretty yucky most of the time and very tired!!! I dont remember being this exsausted before! Other then that things are going good.
Cant wait to meet everyone,
