Just as an info thing, for moms I know who might want to VBAC, who was your attending physician?
Dr Lawrason is my ob, but he's out of town. Dr Woppett delivered River today because he was on call. He was *not* happy about doing a VBA2C, but I showed up fully dilated (well, 9.5 cm, moving to a 10 with the next contraction) and fighting the urge to push, so I didn't really give anyone a chance to argue with me. Everyone was super impressed that I vaginally delivered such a big baby after two c-sections, and so soon after arriving.
I think Dr Lawrason was willing only because he delivered my last baby, and I countered his concerns about VBA2C with my own research. Plus, I'm not someone who takes "no" easily.

YAY for lots of awesome baby news!!
My 3yo is running around the house with his pants around his ankles becaue he can't get them up himself (but doesn'tw ant to slow down long enough to come have me help him)
My hubby has been dipnetting for red salmon on the Kasilhof and has brought home 15 these last two weekends. We're freezing some and smoking (then freezing) a lot. He's set up his own smoker with racks from our old oven (which died last week) and cut down an alder in the backyard and is making his own chips for smoking...we're feeling very independent and self-sustaining this week.
Hubby had a job interview in Nikiski on friday--these folks interviewed him twice--about three different jobs--last spring, and actually they called/emailed him so many times we were sure they would hire him for one of the jobs, and were shocked when they didn't...this year they remembered him from last year, and of course now we're close enough that he was able to go up for the interview in person rather than just on the phone, so hopefully that made an extra good impression... Fingers crossed and we're just waiting to hear what they think. Last year he got hired on July 9, and I would LOVE to beat that this year.
My baby has decided to stand up everywhere, and is learning how to fall down without hurting himself, so that's progress. I suspect he may walk before he crawls (he still belly scootches). He also scratched me on the eyeball this morning...At first I thought he'd just poked me in the eye, but hours later it still hurts and hasn't stopped watering so I'm pretty sure he actually scratched it. I had hubby look at it and he can't see anything, so presumably it'll heal up on its own, but meanwhile it hurts like crazy.
Oh, and I'm contemplating going pro with henna...I did a girls night with some friends and it was a blast and I started thinking gosh I could make money doing this, so I'm making opportunities to practice more and we'll see what happens.
...aaaaand I need to go do dishes. [real life always comes back to haunt ya, doesn't it?]
I'm pregnant! I'm pregnant!! I'm pregnant!!!
I was talking to a mom the other day and she kept mentioning HOW BIG her baby was when she was born and HOW HUGE she is now and HOW BIG babies are so different etc etc etc. She described her baby as 'almost 9 pounds!' and I later found out the babe was 8 lbs 8oz. I told her my DD actually was 9 lbs at birth and that I've heard of babies much larger. She was offended. Apparently, she though 8-8 was as big as they got! I'm hoping my next one is another giant!
I can't believe my eggo is preggo! Maybe I'll go pee on another stick . . .
