    Ok I have a little time now that jeffy has finally decided to nap today!! Let's see where do I start..

    DH and I got engaged in July 2005. We suffered the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina together. We evacuated together (along with his daughter from his prev marriage), we both lost our homes and planned our wedding while we were evacuated. We married in January 2006, and have managed to rebuild our lives.
    We have custody of his two children from his previous marriage Alycia(3.5) and Reese (2.5) we also have one child together Jeffy (14 months). So, yes, that's right... when this baby is born we will have a newborn, 1 yo, 2yo, and 3yo! We are expecting a baby boy whom we have named Luke.

    My first pregnancy (jeffy) was a pretty normal pregnancy. I think i started educating myself on labor and birth a little too late, IMO. I went into labor at 39 weeks with him. I was laboring fine, but then I was talked into AROM while jeffy was still floating up at around -2 station. Though at the time we didn't know it, the top of jeffy's head was flat against my pelvic opening, he was facing my left hip. I believe that AROM was the cause for this, he could no longer move around freely into the position he needed to be in. Anyway, fetal distress, panic time, and minutes later i was having an emergency c-section. I'm still not 100% OK with what happened at my last birth, since I feel that I could've avoided it, but what is done is done and I am much closer to being at peace with my last birth than I was a year ago.

    This time, I am VBAC'ing! My doctor found that my EDD is a week and a half or so earlier than she had in her chart (my chart says may 12, early u/s says may 1) My OB decided not to change it in my chart so that her partners wouldn't try pressuring me (or her, i'm sure) to induce or RCS too early. So, by the time her partners see that i am "due" on may 12, i will already be 41w4d, and hopefully already have delivered this little man. I haven't really done any birthing techniques or classes for this birth, but I have prepared and I'm ready to labor at home for as long as possible then head to the hospital in time to push.

    Ok, picture time!
    Here's dh and I while we were dating He looks soooo young here but it was only 3 years ago i think


    Our wedding day


    DH, me, alycia and reese (i was 7 months pregnant with jeffy)


    Me and Jeffy on his birthday


    And Jeffy on his 1st birthday



    ETA: Starting at about 30 weeks, I started having some contractions that eventually really became cause for some alarm. I had started dialated/softening so I was put on medication to stop the contractions. The meds have worked really really well at stopping them, I would only get 1-2 a day instead of ctx every 2-3 mintues. Starting yesterday though the contractions are really getting through the medication. They aren't painful or anything, but I hope they chill out for a while longer!
