Countdown to Baby #2 begins!

This past Tuesday, Michael and I met with our Dr who will deliver our handsome little baby boy.  We are very happy with him and the hospital we'll be delivering at.  He agreed with my previous 2 doctors that my chances for a VBAC (vaginal delivery after cesarean) were very low and didn't advise it.  (My pelvis is too narrow front to back)  It also turns out that our little man is breach, so that completely rules out any option except a scheduled C-section.  We don't have a definite time yet, but our delivery date is December 19th.  That means in 6 weeks from today, we'll get to meet baby #2 face to face!  HOORAY!  I must say that although I'm not looking forward to the recovery period again, I am very relieved that I know exactly when the baby will arrive, and that I don't have to go through labor again.  (Now watch this little guy throw a wrench in my plans and decide to come early!)

Yeah, I'd count on #2 coming early just for the fun of it. That's what happened with our #2 planned c-section. But, it all works out. You have a beautiful family!!

How exciting! I just have to say that I'm partial to Dec. 19th because it's my birthday, too! :) Best wishes as you count down these last few weeks! -Jen

Email me if you want any ideas on how to help your little guy to come early :) I did them all and Brooklyn came 3 weeks early, and she was breach too (watch out if your water breaks out of the hospital it will gush out everywhere) Good Luck and make sure you post plenty of pictures when he comes.
