I'm due Jan 3rd, but I don't want to make it that far anymore. I'm aiming for as natural a VBAC as I can have birthing in a hospital (long story short--it's the best option for me, my second option is a UBAC and I'm just not ready for that) and am contracting regularly now (mostly BH, some real ones in there, too, though). I'm 33 weeks and 3 days along and the primary caregiver to our healthy, active 2 year old. I've just developed severe SPD when I already had low blood pressure problems and am very close to totally immobilized at this point. I'm hoping all this is going to mean an early labor--which means a lovely December baby, which is what I'd prefer (I was hoping to go a few days early so I was delivering in December anyway, but DD was 42 weeks, so I don't have a lot of hope).
I'm very happy to be pregnant and very disappointed that it's taken this turn. I was enjoying my pregnancy a lot until recently. I spent the first trimester terrified of loss (having had two already, one of which happened only 2 weeks before I conceived this baby. I am thankful for even the SPD and hoping that it leads to a easier VBAC, but I really don't want to go the full 40 weeks. I want my baby to come at the first safe opportunity and since I'm already contracting so steadily and having my pelvis separate, I'm hoping that's a good sign that baby wants that, too, because baby will be calling the shots there.
