    I'm going to be cheering you on from the sidelines!
    I loved reading your stories so far...you certainly have been through a lot with your DH and his deployments, the birth of your daughter, and your journey towards your HBAC.

    I just KNOW that you will have a fantastic birth this time around... and as your birth buddy I can't wait to come and announce it on here! Not too much longer girl!

    Oh, good - I'm glad that was helpful for someone else! I know it helped me tremendously when I got married, so let's hope it helps at birth time, too.

    I enjoyed reading all of your intros, Ariel. I, too, and confident that you are going to have a great birth experience this time around!

    I am feeling forgotten today...

    Some things bothering me...

    My last appointment was on Monday. It was supposed to be Tuesday, but my MW needed to reschedule unless I was ok with her assistant doing the appointment. I was totally ok with that, so I agreed to the Monday appointment. It went great and my MW followed up later that day. She said that we would need to schedule another appointment next week but she would have her other assistant (who is now handling the schedule) to call and set the time and day with me. No call yet... though I did just send her a text to see if she still wanted me to come. It's about an hour and a half drive for me, so I like to make sure that Sylvia has care and that sort of thing if I can.

    Next is, the assistant who saw me on Monday is wonderful... love her to death. She was the one who promised that they would be here for me when I met her at the appointment with my mom and her saying that meant so much. Well, she also said at that appointment (over 3 weeks ago) that she would come out on a weekend so we could work on some emotional clearing/cleansing before the birth. I was SUPER excited by that as I think I need all the help I can get there. Still haven't set a time for that...

    On my appointment on Monday, my MW's assistant asked my EDD. I said September 2nd. That is based on my LMP of November 27, 2009. I was charting, so I am certain that was the first day of my last period. Well, then she says that she remembered it being September 10th in my records. The military did dating u/s (2 of them) b/c my cycles are extremely irregular. Between the u/s and my LMP, I have gotten EDDs of September 2-10. I asked my OB in AK if we could stick with the later date in case we got stuck in a dating game with hospital policy and induction. He agreed. But now that I am with providers that I most likely won't have to face induction with, and planning to birth at home, I would like to go with my LMP EDD. Then when my MW called, I said something to her about it and she said, "oh, I think we have you at September 7th based on your last medical records". I don't know why this is bothering me so bad, but it IS. I feel like nobody will listen to me and that I am being brushed off about it.

    And on top of that I have been really snappy with DD. I don't know why, but she is being so fussy today and I can't deal with it. And I feel so BAD for getting frustrated so easily with her.... she's JUST a baby, and I know she hasn't set out to make me miserable today, but it is driving me nutty.

    Plus, I haven't heard from DH in several days, and I worry, worry, worry about him. All I know is he is out on the roads of Afghanistan right now, and it makes me so nervous.

    I don't know if there is anything I want to do about any of this, but I was just hoping that if I got it all out that it would make this "pit" feeling in my stomach go away

    I'm sorry you are having such a hard time today. I wish I knew how to help you. I would maybe try calling your MW and her assistant that said she would do a fear clearing session and talk to them about it. Let them know how you are feeling and talk to them about the date and try to "make" them listen to you. Maybe her assistant is waiting for you to set up a date with her rather than her call you to set up a date. IDK.

    The last two weeks I was pregnant with William DS1 was horrible. He refused to listen to me and was really really whiny. I was tired and down and my temper was very short. I had no patience for any crap at that point. I think that is just one of those miserable pregnant times. I know the last 4 weeks of pregnancy for me are horrible with my body trying to get ready for baby so my hormones are once again out of control.

    HUGS!!!! I hope you can get feeling better! Maybe see if someone will watch DD while you take a nice warm, relaxing bath, and listen to some relaxing music or something. Just tune the world out. That always helped me a ton!
