I am 9 days postdates and am trying for a vbac. BPP said that my fluids are very very low. We are going in tonight for a small amount of pit to get this labor going - hopefully it will work because I don't want another c-section.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

Baby girl, Selah Jane has arrived.
Tuesday morning at 3:56
8.1 lbs

birth was not as anticipated - went from 3 cm to her out in little over a hour - crazy painful and intense. had a retained placenta, hemoraged, got knocked out and had an emergency surgery. i have a lot to process. look forward to sharing the story and pics.

but first i need to find a pedi. called our family practioner this morning and found she moved out of state without telling her patience. im in a panic

thanks so much everyone.

I think my post was more negative than i wished it to be.

She is beautiful. I had awesome, supportive care providers. Once again, I confirmed I am powerful.

AND I got my VBAC!

all things to celebrate!
