Hi! My name is Katie, I am 25, 26 in November. I am from the middle of the US, the great state of Nebraska. GO BIG RED!! Its really not ALL corn and fields..LOL I am the oldest of 4 girls. My sisters are 23, 19, and 16. I have been married to Dustin my hubby for 5 years now. We met the summer after high school both working at HyVee (a grocery store) while going to school. He came from a small town in Iowa and had grown up on a farm and came to Omaha for college. At first I thought he was a CRAZY stalker! Wink He would always come bag for me at my register and would purposefully go out of his way to help me. I guess that’s how farm boys roll. HAHA That doesn’t happen in the city often! So eventually I liked it and we started dating. I still remember our first date like it was yesterday, I was pretty nervous and we went to a stupid (IMO) movie, Rush Hour 2. I am not so much for action movies. But I sat there and watched it and he didn’t know whether to put his arm around me or just look at the screen I could feel the weirdness. Afterward we went to Dairy Queen (ice cream place) and I paid. I felt so bad for him paying for the movie and everything, he thought that was weird and kept giving me a hard time for it. Anyway after that weirdness we didn’t date for a while, he would call and I would kind of “have something else to do”. That was July and in January he was having a party at his apartment and I kindly invited myself after hearing about it. He was more than thrilled because he had been interested in me for so long. Well we had a “little” too much to drink and he actually opened up and I was able to get to know him better. We officially started dating the next week. We got engaged that following October, only about 10 months after officially dating. And planned the wedding for the following August. We got married August 30, 2003. I was 20 and he was 21. His parents were less than thrilled we were getting married so young, but if you know you know right!? Why wait!?

Well November came along three months after we got married and I was turning 21. So we went out to the bar and again had a “little” too much to drinky! This time getting pregnant!! We were shocked and excited! Our joke is that was my first and last time at the bar. My parents actually had bets on when we would get pregnant! My dad won saying it would be within the first 6 months…WHAT!? While pregnant with Elijah I read a lot of your typical birth books..What to expect, The girlfriends guide to pregnancy etc. I wanted to go natural but didn’t look into it more. I didn’t realize how our hospitals were. My mother had 4 natural births with no meds etc, I thought I would just do the same. I went to 41 weeks with Elijah and they wanted to induce me, by this time I wanted to be induced or so I thought. The pain was horrible and I had about every intervention possible. I got there they hooked me up to an IV, put me on a monitor, stuck me in bed, and put me on pit, gave me a catheter and said I wasn’t able to get out of bed. All I wanted to do was move my hips and get around when I was having contractions but they wouldn’t even let me move around in bed. I had to stay to one side till they said I could move. A couple hours later the doctor came in and broke my water. That made things even worse. Then I ended up getting the epidural cause I couldn’t handle the pain not being able to move. Low and behold I wasn’t progressing because of ALL the interventions that took place. After 9 hours I was still only at a 4 and the doc said, well we are going to do a c-section cause you aren’t progressing. I just cried. I didn’t want anything to do with that. I was in shock…how could my mother and all my aunts, grandmas and everyone do just fine in birth and I HADE to have a c-section. I thought I was broken. I was soooo sad and depressed before even going in there. Elijah came out a whooping 10lbs 4oz and the doctor told me my section was due it CPD (BS in my opinion). That I would be forever stuck with sections. I was depressed but never really thought about having PPD so I just went about my way. I had a really hard time nursing and even just loving on him, I felt like this child was just given to me. After a couple months we really started bonding but now I know what they mean when they talk about the sections and not bonding right away. I wouldn’t trade him for the world now.

When Elijah turned one we thought it would be nice for him to have a playmate. And since I was on these boards and it seemed like it took a while to get pregnant from watching others and Elijah wasn’t planned I wanted to start trying right away as I didn’t know how long it would take us to get pregnant. (My mother was fertile mertile so that should have been a clue for me). We decided since we already had a boy that we would try the shettles method for another boy, (and it worked!!) so Elijah would have a brother. We ended up getting pregnant on the first try and were a bit surprised it happened so fast. During Evan’s pregnancy I really wanted a VBAC. I didn’t see why not. I went to the same doctor (stupidly) and he said I could “try”. So all along I really thought I was going to get that chance at natural birth. I went into labor on my own at 39w 1d and went into the hospital. They decided I needed an U/S to see how big the baby was measuring. Why I agreed to this I DON’T KNOW. But he was measuring over 9lbs and doc said “too big, we will prep for a section”. I just stared at him, I was in labor ON MY OWN and he wasn’t even going to let me try!! I wish I knew then what I know now. I would have told him NO! I didn’t know I could say no, so off to the operating room we went sad again. Crushed and broken. As U/S’s are a lot of the time wrong Evan came out only 8lbs 15oz. Yes almost 9 lbs but doable for a birth. Again I was sad couldn’t believe I just had had another section and thought NEXT TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT!

This time around my husband had been out of town a lot for work and since I got pregnant with one try we thought we would wait till Evan would be two before this baby was due. So whenever he was home we would try to get pregnant using the shettles method again this time trying for a girl since we already have two boys. He ended up going on a 7 month trip out of town and often times when he was home I wasn’t fertile or it just wasn’t right timing. So this time around it took us about 3-4 tries to get pregnant. After he came home from the long trip he had his work party in February. These are awesome work parties let me tell you! We stayed at the hotel overnight and didn’t have the stress of children. With him being gone for so long, we were a bit happy to have the hotel room to ourselves. Biggrin After the work party he had to go back out of town for two weeks to finish his job and while he was out of town I got my BFP!!! I was thrilled. We waited and waited it seemed to see if our shettles method worked for a girl this time. When we went into the U/S at about 18 weeks I laid there waiting…when she rolled over the legs, I screamed “There’s no penis!!!!!” She was like “Wow you are good!” I had seen two penis’s before so I knew what they looked like Haha. I was soooooo sooooo happy to be having a girl, I still can’t even believe it! I thought for sure we were bound to four boys since my parents have four girls. This pregnancy has been hard in the sense of finding a provider willing to take on a VBA2C. I have read and researched more on VBAC and natural birth than I could ever imagine. I switched doctors/midwives/OB’s and just couldn’t find one willing to work with me the way ‘I’ wanted to work, NO INTERVENTIONS. My husband and I watched the BOBB when I was about 25 weeks pregnant and after that we knew we were going to homebirth. I just needed to find a midwife and if we didn’t we were prepared to UC. When I was 30 weeks we had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t going to find one and we were going to UC, since in Nebraska it’s illegal to have a CNM attend a homebirth and lay midwives are far and few between, its all underground and hush hush so they don’t get in trouble. I was 33 weeks pregnant had been going to seminars on “The mother friendly childbirth initiative” and talked to a friend that said she was having a homebirth also and had found a midwife, I was like “WHO, WHERE!?” She gave me her name/doula website even though she knew she probably shouldn’t because they don’t want their names out there to everyone. So at 33 weeks I emailed her through her website asking about a homebirth and she emailed me back asking “Where did you hear that?“ LOL And wanted to know where I got her info from since the website is for “doulaing”. I told her how I found her and had had a few friends use her but just couldn’t ever get a hold of her. I had been talking with ‘The Nebraska friends of midwives’ group which is trying to get homebirth legal with a CNM. After she contacted my friend and figured out I was legit and not someone trying to get her in trouble she agreed to meet with me at my house. She came over that Saturday and she agreed to do a homebirth with me even with having 2 sections. She said she has had great success with ladies going for VBAC-VBA3C and I was more than thrilled!!! Perseverance and prayer paid off! It was all falling together, Dustin and I just couldn’t believe it!!! Now I am 36 weeks and have met with her twice and will meet with her every week now till I go into labor. Its so awesome having her come to me, I don’t have to worry about appointments and DH can be there too cause we do it on the weekends. So now we wait, I want a vaginal birth so bad I can feel it. I have been doing hypnobirthing and doing my visualizations often. We have our birth supplies and birth pool ready and she said as long as I go after 36 weeks I can stay home. I made it there so I am READY! I can’t wait. I pray all the time that this will work with no complications and we will have a successful HBA2C.

So that is our story! I hope I didn’t bore you too much! Here are some pictures of our family!

And I really admire you for being so adamant about getting what you want this time around. I don't think that I would have stuck to my guns for so long, as you have. I cannot wait to read about your HB!

Oh wow, I just got on to check my email and this was popped up in my MSN messenger from Dustins Grandma. His mom found out by accident that we are having a homebirth and is VERY unsupportive, in fact told Dustin if we do this we (baby and I) will die. This came from his Grandma tonight....

Shirley sent 10/3/2008 7:41 PM:

Dear Katie..

Shirley sent 10/3/2008 7:44 PM:
Just a quick msg..I can't believe you would put yourself and little girl thats coming at risk by having a midwife and natural delivery when you say you are so big..what if the birth canel is not big enough...there would not be time to get to a dr for c section. There are so many what ifs be safe and have a C section with a baby Dr...you won't be sorry...

I knew this was going to happen if they found out so we weren't telling them but the other day when Dustins mom called he said something about a midwife and his mom started asking questions and that was that. I suppose I won't be talking to them now till after the birth. I just don't need/want the negativity for my choices, I need to stay positive.

Welcome to your lodge!!! Good luck with your homebirth VBAC! Sorry you have gotten some unwelcome input from family. I am sure that is so tough. We did not tell anyone we were doing NCB for that reason either.

Your sons are SO cute! It'll be so cute for them to have a little sister. I enjoyed all your pictures.

Hope you are well and have a great weekend!

Thank you! I had a good cry, lol, got to love the emotions of pregnancy. But I talked to DH about it and I feel so much better. Its normal for them to be like this, they have always been against everything we have chosen so I really shouldn't be surprised. But I feel better now! WHEW, I can go back to being confident. I was freaking out there for a couple of hours.

I loved your pictures! Your boys are so cute!

I don't think you have CPD either. Your first c/s was because of interventions and being forced to stay in bed against what was natural for you (and for every woman in labor I've ever heard of) and your second one was probably more because of your first than even the ultrasound measurement. I just feel like its so wrong that sometimes drs and hospitals just don't give women any options! I'm glad you were able to find a midwife so your only options aren't 3rd c-section or UC.

Good luck with your HBA2C. I really believe that your body can do this!

Oh wow! Firstly welcome to your lodge! I can't wait to follow your story!

And secondly I completely agree that you should probably try and avoid your DHs family for the remainder of your pregnancy. You do not need the negativity at all, it will only cause doubts in your own mind...

I met with the midwife today and thats always exciting. We went over our birth kit and made sure we had everything and what I need to do like blow up the pool etc. So we are pretty much ready!!

My blood pressure was a little high but after Dustins Grandma's email and him being out of town all week and I had a horrible migraine all night long (not sure why, maybe cause of BP?) she said any of those reasons could be why. I didn't have any protein in my urine though, so thats good. I was having contractions all night about 8 minutes apart last night, they stopped this morning for the most part, but she said that is normal to do that all night for a while before baby is born and stop during the day, so hopefully not too much longer!! She said she guesses a week or two weeks, but not to take her word for it since you know I could go over! LOL Baby was engaged! YAY, all those contractions got her into place and ready to go! We didn't check cervix since it really doesn't matter. But if I want her to check she will whenever. Baby dropped so my belly was measuring smaller than last week. Last week I was measuring 38 weeks at 35 weeks and this week I was measuring 37 weeks at 36 weeks. So all in all a good appt.

And I had a baby shower today too, that was fun! My mom went over board since this is her first grandbaby girl. She got 6 outfits/dresses each with socks, shoes and bows and some with tights. OMGosh they are sooo cute, but dang, she is crazy! LOL It wasn't a huge shower mostly just family and a couple friends but it was nice and cozy!

And yay for DH go him!!, he is making a list of why we love our midwife and have total faith in her and letting his mom know we aren't changing our minds and that they don't have to agree with us but if they could stop saying things to me, that would be nice.

We are off to take a family walk, we try to every night, but it doesn't always happen. Biggrin The boys are calling!...

I'm sure the blood pressure was probably just because you've been stressed.

Good on your DH for making a list to tell his family. They really need to butt out as it's really none of their business how you get a baby out your body!

I am so jealous of you ladies who get baby showers! It's not the done thing here really... You need to post pics of your girlie stuff so we can all girl it up with you! LOL

Katie!!! Welcome to your lodge, mama! And sorry I'm a little late! I loved reading your story and your family is just picture perfect! Who cares how young you got married, if I had my way I would have been 20 too, I feel like DH and I lost time making a family by waiting this long haha. Your family is beautiful and i hope you get the birth that you want! Biggrin

BTW, I was married at 20 also and I think that's the way to do it!

I'm sure the BP thing is just stress. My BP rose late in my pregnancy, also, and everything was fine. Just take some time to relax every day and maybe try to increase your protein intake, because that's supposed to help. Have you read Tina Cassidy's blog? She also had some issues with BP while planning a home VBAC. The story starts here: http://tinacassidy.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2008-01-06T06%3A37%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=20

The contrax at night sounds like prodromal labor. I think what I was having when I went to the hospital with DD was actually prodromal labor, but I didn't know because my childbirth class didn't explain it very well. It sounds like you are getting close, how exciting!

Yay for baby showers! Girl clothes are so fun, aren't they?

Totally sweet about your DH writing the list about your midwife, what awesome support to have!

Welcome to your lodge, I enjoyed your story. You guys are so cute! I'm also from the midwest (KS), I got married a week after I turned 20 and have 2 boys. DH and I met while working at Wal-Mart--I guess that is a typical Midwestern love story! Biggrin

I'm so sorry that your IL's are so unsupportive but YAY! to your DH for standing up for your beliefs. You really don't need the stress or negativity right now.

GL and I can't wait to join you on your journey!

We are doing good today! I believe those contractions were prodromal labor. Elijah is so excited to have his sister, he woke up in the middle of the night and came in and started talking to me about when his sister was coming out so he could feed her and change her diaper...aww so sweet! I don't think he quite understands I will be feeding her for a while, because I do daycare and all the babies have bottles so I have been trying to explain to him "Mama's booboo's feed the baby" LOL, he laughs. Four year olds are FUNNY!

I havent had any contractions since Friday overnight I think they were from DTD. TMI? It had been a while so I am sure. :confused: Isnt sperm a natural cervix thinner? Having a brain fart, can't think of the word. So I am sure I will be pregnant for a while. But I am ok with that, she needs to bake longer. I was getting so antsy and now I am thinking I need to enjoy these last naps Biggrin during the boys' nap time and the "easyness" I have. Evan is 2 1/2 now so things are getting a lot easier and running smoothly, adding a newborn who is totally dependent is going to be a BIG change again!!! So instead of whinning, I am going to enjoy this time! Plus I always miss my belly and the kicks. I have been talking to her in utero a lot and trying to soak it in cause I know I will miss it! I am pretty sure we will have another but in case we don't I need to savor these moments.

I am nesting today. I have been for a couple days, but I am really trying to get things ready! I have two whole chickens in the oven cooking. Then I will pull them apart and seperate them into a good amount of meals. I have 4 to go cassorole dishes that I am going to make and freeze. Don't know what yet?? But something with chicken! Lol Then I won't have to worry about cooking for a while after she comes which will be nice! I already have 3 meals in the freezer so 7 should be good enough for now, our church does one week of meals and my MOPS group does two weeks of meals, and with my 7 meals my goal is no cooking for a month!!!! I will be in heaven!

And I have the remainder of the newborn and 3-6 months clothes in the dryer and hope to get those put away, and am going to make my labor-ade and freeze that, so I should be about ready to go!

Its getting exciting! :D:D:D

Cooking something for the freezer and then eating it is something I would do:) Sould great to have so much help, how nice! I'm going to let anyone who offers bring me food this time, last time I didn't and this time I'll just freeze it if we can't eat it right away!

I havent had any contractions since Friday overnight I think they were from DTD. TMI? It had been a while so I am sure. :confused: Isnt sperm a natural cervix thinner? Having a brain fart, can't think of the word.

Prostoglandin, and yes, it is.

So I am sure I will be pregnant for a while. But I am ok with that, she needs to bake longer. I was getting so antsy and now I am thinking I need to enjoy these last naps Biggrin during the boys' nap time and the "easyness" I have. Evan is 2 1/2 now so things are getting a lot easier and running smoothly, adding a newborn who is totally dependent is going to be a BIG change again!!! So instead of whinning, I am going to enjoy this time! Plus I always miss my belly and the kicks. I have been talking to her in utero a lot and trying to soak it in cause I know I will miss it! I am pretty sure we will have another but in case we don't I need to savor these moments.

Yeah, enjoy these last moments with her tucked up inside your womb. Pregnancy is a very special time, when you are connected to your child in a way no one else is.
