    Oh wow! I'm sorry that his family is being so unsupportive, I can't imagine how how that must be for you!!! You and Emelia will be just fine - just keep believing in yourself and what your body is capable of!

    Oh, man, you do not need that kind of pressure to fend off. Sorry they're being like that. I hope you can avoid them for a little while. Nothing like trying to talk to people who refuse to listen!

    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...

    Love,

    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. The boys are calling!...
