As expected, baby boy Michael keeps growing at an incredible rate. Each week that passes I feel (and see via pictures) the expansion of my tummy become larger and larger.... And with the mid section growing so does the upper section. Both causing days of exhaustion and discomfort and evenings of uncomfortable sleep. I bought a belly wedge to help hold up Mikey and to prevent me from laying more on my tummy as I was tending to do. This product has helped out tremendously in that area, but then the lower back became jealous and began it's whining of wanting attention... Insert another pillow under back side. Then to even it out, and find the most comfort, put another pillow with blankets up to chest. I must look like I am trying to cover myself in pillows..... :)))
I have been looking into having a VBAC also.... Which I was informed the ratings for me are a 40-50% chance of that being able to take place because of the reasons behind my initial cesarean. Jake was bigger than we thought he'd be and after 2 hours of pushing and use of forceps he was unable to be pulled or pushed out. This is when I was told I didn't have "birthing" hips. I'll be going to another hospital for a review to see what can be done. I'm not one for taking no as an answer or that I can't do something... And from speaking to numerous other moms and through readings it seems c-sections are what most hospitals try and push for... Especially if you have already had one.... Plus, the recovery time is weeks upon weeks shorter! I am looking forward to finding out our birthing options and what location it will be taking place at.
