Yay!! I'm excited to have my own lodge, Ive been lurking on them for months!! Biggrin I'll get my intro posted tonight after Ds goes to bed.

Hello all!! Biggrin I'm Jessi (25) and I live with my Dh (James-31 and technically my Df) and our Ds (Jonas-2) in southern VA. I met my Dh when I was barely 22 and still sowing my wild oats Wink and he had just moved to our little college town to start a new life. It was the classic city boy meets country girl kind of fling. We didnt really have any plans for the future just late night parties and doing what felt good at the time, and then..... I missed my period. When we found out we were pregnant we both kind of fell apart. I knew I wanted to keep my baby but I wasnt ready to commit to James. This caused a lot of misunderstandings and hurt feelings between us and we pretty much fought our way through our whole pregnancy. In spite of all this I was so excited about my son and completly turned my life upside down to be a good mom for him. And I realize now while I was working on myself James was busy getting his own life together.
I had a really easy and uneventful pregnancy with Jonas which was great bc I took a second job to be able to save up enough money for a 3 month maternity leave. Another plus to my second job was that it was at a daycare where I would return with Jonas after my leave so I could care for him myself even at work. I used the same Drs that I am going to know and I really love them. I feel like they are about as close to seeing a midwife as you can get with a regular OB. I carried Jonas for 41 weeks and never got any pressure to induce. They told me that they would rather deliver a 10 lb baby with a moms body that was ready than induce for a six or seven lb one.
I had a really hard time preparing for birth with Jonas. I wanted to be ready and make the right choices for myself, but something allways held me back from researching what would actually go on. I read so many pregnancy books but would allways end up skipping the parts about the actual birth. When it was time and I was at the birthing center I was suprised to find that I was coping really well and then unfortunatly my audience arrived. It had never occured to me that people would come to the hospital to watch my labor! So I was really thrown off guard and rather than cause conflict I ended up attempting to labor in bed and not make a scene which led to my epi. I did put my foot down when it came time to push and had everyone leave the room. An hour and 45 minutes later Jonas was born. He weighed 9 lbs 10 oz and was absolutely perfect! He was immediatly placed on my chest and in the seconds before he cried I could feel his little heart beating like crazy through his ribs. It was the best moment of my life just to know that he was out and doing ok. Then he started crying and pooped on me. :rolleyes: My epi ended up being way to strong and took hours to wear off which is one of the main reasons I want to avoid it this time. Even though Jonas' birth was far from perfect I really feel at peace when I think about it. It is what it is, and I got this: Biggrin

After Jonas was born James and I were sort of thrown back together against our own wills. He was really commited to being in Jonas' life and came to spend time with him every day which meant we also spent alot of time together. Lets just say that one thing led to another and by the time Jonas was six months old James had moved in with us. Biggrin I hate that we had to go through what we did but at the same time I think we really needed to go full circle to appreciate what we have together. We truly love each other and work every day to give our son a secure happy life.
This past November on my birthday James asked me to marry him. I said yes of course and about a week later we were suprised to find out we were expecting baby #2! Ive had another great pregnancy and we were thrilled to find out that we are having a baby girl. Ive been able to research natural birth this time and I feel so much more confident about the whole process. It's been so great to experience the love and support of my partner and know that I'll have him there with me this time.
Thanks for reading our story and I look forward to sharing these last few special weeks with you guys!
Here's a pic of our little family from a few days before we found out about our new addition:

Welcome to your lodge! :wavehello: Great intro, I love it when people are able to work things out and stay together despite a rough start. And your docs sound awesome, so few these days would prefer a 10-pound baby over elective induction, that's just so refreshing to hear. I can't wait to share this journey with you!

I loved your intro. I think it's great that your DS brought you and your DF together. That is awesome that your OB's are so NCB-friendly--the idea of a 10 lb baby born with spontaneous labor being preferable to a 7lb baby born by induction is unfortunately rare these days. I'm glad your doctors see the benefits of spontaneous labor over induction. I thought it was interesting in your birth story how you said you were coping fine despite not really preparing until you had an audience, and then you felt like you were expected to labor in bed. Our cultural view of birth involves the woman being in a bed, even though it is not comfortable or natural-feeling most of the time, and I've seen so many women on A Baby Story (which I've quit watching because I need to get in my bubble of peace now) laboring in bed and just staying still and complaining and then getting epidurals. Just thought it was interesting to hear your explanation and your story as an example of why women need privacy during labor, and how they can benefit from learning about how good moving around during labor can be.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone :giveflower:

I cant believe how different this pregnancy has been from my last. It's not different in a bad way really bc I feel like Ive had it pretty easy both times but everything has just seemed to follow a new pattern this time. From m/s to energy it's all been on another level. Now in the last month something else is new-fake ctrx!! I get them all the time! With Ds I never had a single BH that I know of at all, never a twinge or tightening till the day I had him. This time they started weeks ago and theyve been especially strong this week. I pretty much have them off and on all day and they get borderline painful at night and spread around to my back as well as my tummy. I feel like its ok just second time around stuff but it makes me wonder if things will happen earlier this time. And I know since I'm thinking this way she'll probably hang out longer than her brother Wink I'm ok with that though and I wont really be impressed until I dialate past a 3. I stayed at 3 for 5 weeks with Jonas, which my Dr said was normal but it drove everyone else crazy bc they thought it must mean labor was coming anytime :rolleyes: I know cervical checks arent really necessary but I dont turn them down cause I'm nozy and just "need" to know.

Ok, rambling/rant over Biggrin We had a great week here it's gone by really fast and seemed busy but now I cant really remember why... Dh has been really attentive to me and Jonas lately, not that he usually isnt, he's just really been doing a little extra here and there and it adds up nicely. I really like the special attention he's been giving Jonas. Theyve done some nice bonding over the past week. Jonas has been really attached to me lately. No one else can do anything for him without him throwing a fit. I dont mind, but for the first little bit after the baby it might be a problem... But since James has been trying to do more little things with him Jonas is finally acting ok with and even choosing daddy over me sometimes.

That's all for now, time to go to sleep so I can wake up every 2 hours all night :rolleyes:

I enjoyed your intro very much! It's going to be fun to see how this birth goes for you:) To make your lodge clickable you take this:

[url=http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/showthread.php?t=533348] My Birth Lodge [/url ]

and cut and paste it into your siggy, and remove the space just before the last bracket and that should work for you. You can pm me if I lied, but I tried it and it worked for me.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks!! I was hoping some more August mommies would hang out down here Biggrin

We had a nice couple of days here. Ive been trying to fit in as much extra little stuff with Jonas as I can. I'm excited about having our little girl here soon but I cant help but feel guilty about having less time and energy for him. Then I go full circle and worry that I dont think about baby girls needs enough :rolleyes: I know we'll work it out though, I'm not the first mom to go from 1 to 2.

My BH still seem to be getting stronger every day. I dont feel like baby girl is dropping at all though so I dont take them too seriously. I just think of it as my uterus flexing itself so when it's really time it'll be ready to go to work Wink I noticed today when I was having them how large the separation of my abs has gotten :eek: I hope belling binding and exercizing helps at least a little or I'm gonna look rough!!

Happy 37 weeks! I know what it's like to feel mixed emotions about an upcomeing birth. I can remember crying after DS left the hospital the day DD was born, it makes me tear up typeing about it:(. They grow up before your eyes, but it's all very worth it!!

I'm so excited to finally be 37 weeks!! I have no logical reason to believe that baby girl would have been born preterm(especially since Jonas came at 41 weeks) but Ive just had this feeling that she's not "in there" as good as he was :confused: So she is now welcome to come out anytime in the next 1 to 30ish days Wink I'm a little freaked out now by the amount of stuff I still need/want to do before she gets here. Ive been putting it off a bit bc it involves some slightly physical stuff that I was concerned might bring labor on. Here's my little list:

Scrub the inside of my car and install the carseat
Move my cedar chest and bookshelf out of my room and the bassinet and rocking chair in
Rearange the living room to fit in the packnplay and swing
Clean EVERTHING!
Organize Ds' closet so part of his huge mountain of toys can fit in it
DTD with Dh a few times since were gonna hit a bit of a dry spell Wink
Pack bags for hospital

Ok so it doesnt really look like that much now that it's out there instead of in my head. :rolleyes: I just tire out really easily these days. I drug our weeks worth of laundry to my moms house to wash it yesterday(no washer here due to drainage issues :() and you would have thought I'd ran a marathon or something... Oh well all she really needs is to nurse and sleep at first so it's all good Biggrin

That's not such a bad list, and once you delete that silly "clean everything" entry it's really quite manageable. Lol We don't have a washer or dryer so my doing laundry involves taking everything out to the corner coin-op. I'm dreading to discover what adding Ginger Baby is going to do to our laundry pile. Everyone warned me about the lack of sleep & the exhaustion with a new baby which I never seemed to have, but no one said anything about how such a tiny person could make three times the amount of laundry DH & I ever made together. :roll:

Don't be surprised if the baby doesn't "really" drop until you're in labor. My #2 wasn't engaged down there until labor...whereas my 1st was engaged for FOREVER! Smile She's just gonna drop and fall out one day! Smile

ROFL I'm kind of afraid of this!! I was getting ready for bed a few nights ago and my BH got pretty painful and were coming every few minutes. I was thinking maybe I should get the bags packed just in case but Dh was at work my mom who's suposed to keep Jonas is out of town and I was super tired. So I was like screw it I'm going to bed if the baby comes tonight I'll have her in the freaking tub by myself! I dont have any secret desire for a waterbirth (looks too cold) but if I randomly think of having her at home I picture doing it in the tub :shrug:

As far as my list goes it's really not that bad. I was hyper and got on it today and finished allmost everything! Except the car bc I didnt leave the house. And Dh had to work tonight so that was a no go Wink

The water in a waterbirth is supposed to be kept very warm--close to body temperature, so I don't think it would be cold.

You are getting close!

I had my 37 week appt today, it went really well. My GBS came back negative Yahoo I didnt have a cervical check bc they did that last week so it seemed pointless. Baby girl is still measuring a week ahead but I really just think my due date may be a week off. Or she's gonna be a little beefcake, Jonas never measured ahead and he was a big boy! I dont know if this being my second pregnancy would make difference with that? The Dr did a quick us to check her position and fluid levels. She's still head down and her fluid looks great Biggrin And she is probably gonna have a head full of hair! He pointed out to me where the us showed little floaty lines above her head Biggrin I hope she doesnt lose it all before she's born, but little baldies are cute too Wink That's all for now time to straighten up the house and go to bed.

Glad you had a good appointment. At my last OB appointment we took a quick peek to confirm position, and I was trying to figure out if Ginger Baby had hair or not. Tiven was pretty much bald for almost two years and I really wanted to kiss some soft downy baby hair, so I'd like him to have a bit of hair.

Aww, Stacy! I'll keep my fingers crossed that ginger baby comes out nice and furry Wink

I'm so excited, my list is done!! Yesterday I scrubbed my car inside and out and got the new carseat in so that's done. And I got the bassinet out of storage and set up so I think we are really ready. I was a little bummed when I realized my new bed is taller than the one I had with Ds so the bassinet wont be level with me it'll be a little low. But that's ok she'll still be right there for the first few months. Dh wants the baby to come on Monday bc his work schedule is a little lighter next week than usual. I told him starting Sunday he'll have to do his part to get things moving along Wink He's out tonight for his last night out with the boys until after baby girl gets here and settled in. Totally not fair, I cant remember my last girls night and even if I wanted one now I would be too tired :rolleyes: He deserves it though he really has been great about everything.

I had my 38 week appt today. I was really looking forward to it bc Ive been having alot more aches and pains the past few days and baby girl felt like she had changed positions a bit so I was thinking we'd made some progress. Well she changed positions allright, now she's breech Sad They had just confirmed a head down position by us last Weds :confused: My Dr was even a little suprised. He said it's pretty unusual for a baby to turn this late especially after a previous uncomplicated birth. We scheduled an external version for this weds. He wanted to give her a day to try and turn back on her own but he doesnt want to wait too long bc her butt hasnt engaged yet and she's not getting any smaller. I'm really nervous about the version. He said it has a good chance of working but he also said that there could be complications that could lead to an emergency c-s. And if it doesnt work that we will need to talk about scheduling one Sad I was not expecting this at all. I'm so disapointed and nervous. I know my body is capable of pushing a baby out and now I may not have the chance bc of something that seems so random. Im feeling pretty down about he whole thing. It just doesnt seem like there are any good options. There are risks if we do the version but if we dont we'll have to deal the the risks of a c-s or a breech birth. I really dont feel comfortable with the idea of a breech birth but I dont know alot about it either. I guess I just need to try not to worry and wait and see how the version goes. Does anyone on here have any experience with them?

oh, Jessi, I'm so sorry to hear your little girl flipped breech! That does complicate things. I don't know much about external version, but hopefully someone else will.

Since you have already had one vaginal birth, if you baby is in a good breech position (bum first, not feet first) you are a good candidate for vaginal breech--there are risks with both the c-section and the vaginal breech option, and only you can decide what is best for you. Whether or not you can find a care provider who feels comfortable with vaginal breech is also a factor, unfortunately.

There is a lot of information about breech birth on the Coalition for Breech Birth (co-founded by Robin/Robinna) website: http://www.breechbirth.ca

ETA: you can try lots of things to try to encourage the baby turn that have less risk than an external version--here are some links:

So sorry your baby flipped. Oh, I understand exactly how you feel...I was in the exact same position a few weeks ago. My LO never even turned down. The good part is that you seem like a good candidate for the external version. As a second time mom, your uterus is more likely flexible, relaxed, and has room for the Dr to work. I didn't have that option and was at more of a disadvantage at even trying it. The external versions are mostly done in hospitals, so your baby would receive good and fast care in case of any complications.

If your heart is really at a vaginal delivery and it feels right I say go with it. Expect any of the outcomes, be prepared in case you do end up with a c-sec. As a worry ward about my own c-sec, I tell you...It isn't so bad at all. I think that at the end, the body producing chemicals that give you a high from having your child all healthy (regardless of how it got here) helps you get through any negative feelings, thoughts, and even as a pain blocker. I wish I could have had Anthony as a vaginal delivery, but I know that that was not an option that would have brought him safe or even alive.

If you have any questions on what to expect or concerns about a c-sec you can always PM me. I'll try to answer you with the best of my knowledge and experience I had. :bighug:

:bighug: I'm so sorry your little girl flipped! I would suggest contacting a chiropractor who has experience (or at least familiarity with) the Webster Technique. It's a very simple, painless adjustment that helps make sure the pelvic joints are properly aligned, and helps release tension in the pelvis, giving baby more room to flip back on her own.

If the external version is done in the hospital, then it's quite safe. They'll do an ultrasound during the procedure to make sure that baby's cord isn't in the way, and they will monitor baby the entire time. They'll also probably give you an epidural, both to help your body relax for the procedure, and for the rare chance that something happens and you need an immediate c-section. If your doctor is suggesting doing it in the office, no way would I do that.

And if all else fails and baby stays breech, I would absolutely insist on a trial of labor rather than scheduling a c-section. Babies can & do flip right up to the end, and vaginal breech birth is statistically as safe for baby as a c-section breech birth. In fact, a c-section breech birth is more dangerous for baby than a standard c-section birth, it's just always a tricky delivery no matter what. And a c-section is always harder on mama. I would give my baby and my body every chance to work together the way they're supposed to, and only agree to a c-section if labor wasn't progressing or if baby was getting distressed. Try talking to your baby, ask her to flip, ask her to work with you for a safe birth. But above all, trust your gut! If your mama instinct is saying baby needs a c-section, baby might just need one.

What she said!! I've been seeing a chiropractor this pregnancy and had HORRIBLE hip issues before....it took her WEEKS to clear out the websters in my hips but she did and it's GREAT now!!! HIGHLY suggest a good pre-natal chiropractor!!

Thanks for the advice! Baby girl is still breech this morning, no suprise cooperation in our sleep last night :rolleyes: If it wasnt so negative otherwise it would actually be kind of cute Shes facing forward with her little arms and legs all bunched up in the front of my belly so I'm getting lots of new punches and kicks from her. Ive decided not to try any do it yourself methods to turn her until after they try the version. I'm worried it may drive her butt deeper into my pelvis. She is sitting kind of in between full breech and tranverse right now. The version is going to be at the hospital based birth center that I'll be delivering at anyways so I know it will be a safe enviroment. And my Dr is very proud of having the lowest c-s rate in our area so I dont feel like he will push one unnecessarily. I dont know how he feels about breech birth but he does encourage v-bacs. I honestly dont think I would be comfortable with trying a vaginal birth if she doesnt turn anyways. I had actually researched breech births a bit early in my pregnancy when I was bored and was impressed with how safe it seemed compared to what I'd allways heard. But now that it applies to my baby it just seems so risky (not that a c-s isnt). I cant say if it's a gut feeling or a response to the stigma that goes along with breech births but I dont feel like my heart would be in it and that isnt the way you should go into something like that. KWIM? So the plan is to try the version and if that doesnt work schedule a c-s and throw everything the spinning babies site has at baby girl till then. I'll also insist on a last minute us just to make sure. Dh and I worked out a c-s birth plan just in case last night so I know were on the same page with all of that. I feel kind of cocky for not having done that anyways. I really just took it for granted that everything would go smoothly. You really dont appreciate something that seems so natural until you feel like it's being taken away from you. I know it sounds like Ive given up allready but I really havnt. I just want to take things one step at a time. Hopefully we'll show up at the birthing center tomm and find out the little stinker allready flipped back on her own Wink

So yesterday morning we went to the hospital to try and get baby girl to turn head down again. She had shifted around a bit on Tuesday night and felt like she was in a different position but I didnt want to get my hopes up. We go to the hospital and get all set up and they monitered baby girl for 20 minutes while I lay there getting all nervous. Then the Dr came in and felt first thing down by my pubic bone and says "Well here's her head" Biggrin He did a quick us to confirm and everthing looks great! The only problem is now every time she gets really fiesty moving around in there I freak out a little thinking she's trying to go breech again :rolleyes:

I'm so relieved!! Now we get to go back to waiting for things to happen on there own Yahoo
