Jumping in here so that I can stalk your lodge. Thanks for the great intro, looking forward to your journey.
Taryl, I was inspired by reading through your intro. I didn't get to know you through Callie's birth but I am so thankful you shared your experience. Praying for a VBAC for you!!!

Well, Taryl, you know I'm one of your biggest fans! Loved loved your intro - you write every post so eloquently. I'm so looking forward to sharing this last leg of the journey with you.
Hey Taryl! Here from march 07 wishing you the best of luck and a speedy, beautiful VBAC!!!!
The depression over everyone being induced and already having thier babies in thier arms is the primary reason I am straddling two boards right now. And pretty sure that even with a Jan 29 due date I will end up on Feb. It was far to depressing and frustrating and I think what lead to me giving up and getting induced (although I was overdue...I really think Noah would have come out on his own if I had just waited a couple more days).
Our postpartum was VERY VERY similiar in sooooo many respects. I mean I could have written the post partum half of your post. So I'm definitly going to watch you and learn from you this time around.
Best of luck!

I remember that feeling with my BB even though it wasn't nearly as bad on mine four years ago as some of them are now. I've already decided that when I get pregnant again, I am NOT joining another BB.
Join the revolution & take back our holidays!
Change Black Friday into Buy Nothing Day, and don't take your credit cards to work on Cyber Monday.
Shift Your Shopping from mass marketers & big box stores to your local independent retailers & small artisans.
Practice a Buy Nothing Christmas. Instead of buying more things, give gifts of your time, your energy, and maybe even some unwanted things around your home; organize a used items gift swap among your family and/or friends.
wow, taryl, what an experience with callie's birth. I do agree about the incudctions on the boards. Good luck with the VBAC. I truely hope you get it and it goes the way you want.

Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.
Taryl you are such a strong woman! You have been through so much and I hope everything with this pregnancy turns out as it should.
I'm right there with you on our BB, I just hate the negativity and am so happy that I can come here to be around other women that aren't in hurries to get these LO's out. With each induction (and there's been lots of them scheduled even just today) my heart just drops and I think I'm going to have to just avoid it completely.
YAY YAY!!! I can't wait to stalk this lodge.
