Ann, you did an amazing job of laboring. I am utterly moved and impressed with your birth.

I agree that labor is just kinder on some bodies. Like a PP I only had very bad pain at the end when it was too late for any kind of pain relief.

Mama to Umberto 12, Camille, 9, Piper 7, Rowena 2, and Jude Therese Prenatal DS diagnosis due December 23.

I'm sorry you didn't get a VBAC (in any form). I was in a somewhat similar situation with this one and the decision to go ahead with a repeat c-sec because I wasn't making any progress (as in, 30 hours after my water broke I hadn't dilated at all). I hope your relationship with this new one continues to improve each day and that with time, the disappointment will fade.

Wow! He's a chubby little cutey! He makes my 8.5lb 7 week old look teeny! You did a great job even though your birth didn't go the way you'd planned. I know how hard it can be to deal with that even when you know it was for the best. I liked seeing the pics of your c-section. I had one also, under general anesthesia, but no one was there to take pictures.
