A Day to be Thankful

Today I am so thankful. God has blessed me sooo very much...Two days ago I delivered a healthy baby girl, and am home today. My husband has been a God send to me these past few days, especially when the clock was ticking. He was busy making my meals, doing housework, and even massaging my feet! Thank you Hunny I love you bunches! Not to mention my 2 angels, my son Carter, has been my helper, asking for things to help with, while my daughter Kaitlyn has been my shadow, wanting to do everything I do. I love you both and thank God for you! I'm also so thankful to have supportive parents, and siblings. They encourage, support, and most importantly are dependable.

I'm also thankful for blogging! I love visiting y'all seeing whats new, learning so many new things and making new friends. Thank you all!

Today marks the birthday of two of my adorable nephews! Happy 5th Birthday Connor and Happy 2nd Birthday Matthew! God Bless you both!

40 Whole Weeks

Tomorrow marks my due date. A whole 40 weeks carrying someone I can hardly wait to meet. Shes kicked, flipped, and used every bit of belly available to her!
So hows the sleeping you say? What sleep? Here and there, id say. Between the all night heart burn, every 20 minute peeing, and trying to toss and turn to get in a comfy position (which doesn't work,EVER) Id say i must have dozed off in there somewhere at least for a couple of minutes.
With my c-section date approaching in 7 days I am still pretty nervous that she wont make it in time and ill be rolled into the operating room! Ive had so much support in my choice to try for another VBAC, its awesome. I know the recovery time stinks with a c-section, and really never goes back to normal, must be why I feel so strongly about the VBAC.
No matter what route has to be taken when I enter that delievery room, I cant wait to meet my baby girl.

Oh yes! We have her name picked out too! So now we're only missing the beauty to go with it!

Only days to go!

39 weeks and 5 days. I've made it down to the wire.

My Dr emailed me back and per my request pushed my C-section back one week till Dec 1st. I'm a basket of mixed emotions, not sure if I'm happy about the delay, nervous that she wont get here in time, and a lil anxious for her arrival!

Ive got everything ready to go, bags packed, car seat in car and I'm stocked up on newborn diapers.

Ill keep you updated on my progress, or lack of...

As of this morning I am only 3 1/2cm, 50% effaced.

The last 6 days..

Lets see where should my story begin, I guess I should start at the beginning. 9 Months ago we were thrilled to discover we were pregnant with our 3rd child. What a beautiful surprise, and gift from God... I originally made up my mind to keep you updated on check ups, growing, all the good stuff that goes along with being pregnant. Then the "nesting phase" kicked in overdrive! I didn't sit down from about week 18 till about week 36. Today at 39 weeks I am still doing, moving, and waiting till my hubby's is off work to nag him a bit! LOL...

I have 6 days till my due date, and still cant believe Ive come so far! With my first I went to 37 wks, with my second 35 wks, and my 3rd I was hoping to have her delivered like 2 weeks ago! So much for positive thinking. Ive been having plenty of contractions, and even thought I was in Labor last Friday at 4am, then arrived at the hospital and 20 minutes later were gone!!!

Since having a previous C-section I cant be induced. So they've already scheduled my C-section day for Monday the 23rd. If you've ever had one you know about everything that comes along with it, plus recovery. I'm not looking forward to it, and getting very nervous and anxious and being cut again. So today I went in for a check up, and I am 2 1/2 cm, 50 %. This afternoon I decided to email my Dr. and let him know how I am feeling. I would like at least another week to give vbac a try. Ill keep you updated on his response. I know I can do this, Ive done it before!
Please keep me in your prayers!
