    Due dates…they make me crazy! I believe that I cried on each of my due dates because they are a tease! My first 2 didn’t arrive by my due date which felt so disappointing, and with my last, I cried because I was so grateful that my little boy who arrived so early with so much drama was healthy and in my arms. I also understand and feel your anxiety about attempting a VBAC. It is so hard to know that you are doing the right thing. Just remember that know matter how baby arrives, you have done a wonderful job creating and growing him/her, and your goal is a healthy babe in your arms. I am praying for you and hoping that you find some peace from the fear and anxieties that are filling you. I look forward to seeing/meeting my new niece/nephew soon!

  2. I hope everything goes well for you! A C-section is my worst nightmare right now! I really don´t want to miss out on our first child being born. Maybe it sounds crazy, but I”m actually really looking forward to the birthing process and hope that it will be something that my husband and I can enjoy together. We still have about 3 weeks yet and I´m a little bit afraid that baby will be a good size considering that my siblings and I were 8, 10, 9, and 8 + pounds. Oh well! As long as we have a happy, healthy one everything will be just fine right!?!

  3. Prayers for you and your family Lisa. I can relate, I was 13 days over with my fourth. :) We celebrated our Anniversary and they induced me the next day. My group really doesn´t go past a week over but I really wanted to wait. I still wonder when Joshua would have come if they hadn´t induced. Hugs and prayers.

    Praying for you and baby! It is in God’s hands and He will give you the peace needed to know when and how the little one is to arrive. God bless you.

    Praying for you and sending you good VBAC vibes! My VBAC baby was over a pound heavier than my c-section baby that “wasn’t going to come out.” I will be praying for your delivery and a healthy baby no matter how he or she comes out!

  6. There’s so much to love in this post, starting with the photos. A-dorable.

    I totally get where you’re coming from! As, obviously, do a lot of other visitors. I think the spiritual attack point is important, but on the other side of it is this reality: like the wedding, when something is bound to go wrong, it doesn’t really matter how you get to the far side, as long as you get there.

    I say that as someone who is totally encouraging you to go for the VBAC, having been through four C sections myself. After Alex AKA monster child, I hoped to VBAC, but little Pretzel Girl made that impossible, and so it goes. Avoid the C if you can. If you can’t, it’s okay.
