And, yes, I continue to talk myself into this...ugh.
And, to add icing to this cake, I have my follow-up gestational diabetes test on Saturday morning...sigh. I have gained a LOT of weight...oh, 30 pounds or so, and I am only 25.5 weeks, so a positive won't surprise me much. But, I digress...
The best part was finding out the lactation consultant will be int he operating room ready to get this little guy nursing instantly :, and he'll room-in, just like my other kids. THAT is a big relief.
I am also opting to have a tubal whilst in there since it takes almost no extra time. DH is still thinking about a vascectomy, but we'll see. It's def not because he won't that I have decided to...
So, there you have it. I cannot believe I am coming home with a new son on Christmas Eve. YOWZA!
I am glad that you have found a way to celebrate the birth of your baby.

Congrats on making a decision- I'm sure it was a hard one!
(and congrats on having the courage to post it- I know how hard it can be to be the odd one out sometimes )

Christmas is a wonderful time to have a baby. How amazing...

DD was born via c/s because I had gestational diabetes and just feared the worst again.
This kiddo was a toss up. I thought I could home birth...maybe even unassisted, which we talked about briefly. BUT, then I got to thinking about all of the possibilities, my previous experiences, and teh timing of this little one's birth, as well as my desire to take care of birth control forever. So, c/s it is.
I am still coming to terms with this, but am 85% okay.
Thank you all!:
Already talking about a birth is making the time seem to fly much faster!
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.
Now, with 12/22 you might have the first of our January babies!!
