Okay, heres my intro: (copied from another site)
My Dh John and I have been married for almost 4years. We met working together about 7 years ago and were engaged about 2 years later, then married the year after that. It took us 23 months and lots of medical intervention to have Jacob. My pregnancy with Jacob was high risk because of a past surgery on my cervix. I was told I'd be lucky if I carried him to 20 weeks, but he was born on his due date and was perfect in every way!! I was induced because of his size. The labor itself was not too bad, but I did end up pushing for almost 3 hrs, and he had to be vacuum extracted at the end. After the delivery however, I was hemorrhaging very badly, and things got a bit ugly. The worst part was not seeing my baby for several long hours. I got to hold him for a few minutes, then things got nutso.
This pregnancy has been interesting to say the least. Aside from the TIA around 24weeks, everything has gone pretty well. I am looking forward to a birth with no or little medical intervention. I am praying that I go into labor on my own and dont have to be induced. As of last week, I was 2cm, 30% effaced and very soft, so I am hoping that is a good sign.
At my appt this week, I was still only 2cms, but I was 70% effaced, which is progress. No rush though because there are several more weeks to go!!
