Friday Follow, and a quick Preggo Post

Hello Hello!
Its Friday again, so last week, I participated in the Friday Follow and it was great! I found several new blogs to read and doubled my number of readers. So I am trying it out again this week, hopefully to find some more cool blogs that I can follow.

Update on the Pregnancy...
I am 35 weeks pregnant with little boy #2. We are scheduled to have a c-section on June 8th.
Why a scheduled c-sec? Well... way back when...when I was pregnant with Bailey, he got comfortable, and refused to get into the appropriate position, and for several weeks we were aware that he was breech. There was no moving that big boy, so we scheduled a c-sec, and he arrived at 39 weeks on April 18th, 8lbs 8 oz, perfect in every way.
I know there are some people who have very strong opinions on c-sections and VBAC's, and natural birth. My opinion is that as parents, we need to do what is best for us. A c-sec was necessary for me for my first born. My OB prefers to avoid VBAC's, so this will be another c-sec for me. I am perfectly OK with that. I know the drill, I know what to expect, and I am confident that all will go well. I also love that we can schedule this arrival, so we have time to make plans with out of town family, and what to do with #1 while #2 arrives.
I have gotten the nursery ready, I have washed all the little sleepers and blankets, I need to get bottles washed before he gets here (in case you are wondering, I will nurse, and pump so Dad can also enjoy bonding time with #2, we also supplement with formula if needed).
I am so ready. I have gotten to the uncomfortable stage, and add a little Alabama heat and humidity....Lets go! I also think that with this one I am more eager for him to arrive, since I know the joy he will bring to our lives. I am nervous about how my sweet Bailey will deal with all the changes in our house. He is very much a Momma's boy. But I hope he will use this time to do lots more bonding with Dad.

So this is all the fun stuff going on in my world at the moment.

I'm with you on the C-section vs. VBAC thing... I just trust my doc more that I do other that so bad??

I'll be having a scheduled C most likely too, and I'm sure I'll get flack about it!

Congrats on the upcoming delivery!!! That's not long at all - you can make it!


I think that most OB's are pro C-section after a c-section....

I think it's up to the mother.... My wife (and I) had a VBAC with our second.... She wanted a VBAC, but we both agreed that the health of the child came first.... The VBAC happened and both mommy and baby are healthy and happy!

Congrats! How excited! It's hard to find a doctor willing to do a VBAC these days. Best of luck!
By the way, I am loving my Kindle! =)
