heatherliz2002 in L&D!!! ***UPDATE***

Received a text from Heather 2 hours ago (4:20 am) and she said,

"In L&D. 7-8 cm, baby at station 1+. Totally caved and just got the epidural. Baby gave us a little scare and needed to be prepared for possible c-section. He is looking good now and VBAC is back on track. Going to try to sleep."

Shouldn't be long now before I get news of his arrival. Thinking of you Heather!

**UPDATE**
"He's here! Successful VBAC, although just barely-we had a scare with a pretty serious cord situation. Ended up with forceps and episiotomy in order to get him out fast enough. But we are both fine. Born at 9:44 am, 7lbs 6 oz, exactly the same as big sister."

Congratulations Heather!!!

Yahoo So excited for you Heather! I am praying you get your VBAC and a healthy baby boy!
BTW- if my labor would have been longer I totally would have caved and got the epidural

Yahoo I'm so glad you got your vbac! even if it came with a few surprises :confused:

And glad that he was not "huge" like you were worried about after last week's midwife comment. Lol

Congrats. Can't wait to hear all about it and to hear his name! Smile

Thanks everyone! And thanks to Libby for updating! I am so, so excited that I was able to get my VBAC! I will write up the full story later (have only slept about 20 minutes since Sunday night, so I'm pretty sure it would come out as gibberish if I tried right now). But overall it went amazingly well with the one snag... baby had the cord around his neck FOUR times. This obviously caused some major problems when I started pushing, which is why we ended up with the forceps and the episiotomy (had to get him out ASAP... that part was scary), but it was so fantastic to be AWAKE for the birth!!! And I'm thrilled that I was able to do it! Baby is SO sweet. Has barely cried at all and is nursing well. I'm obviously sore, but doing fine. I'll post more tomorrow :-).

Wow! I've heard of the cord wrapped around 1 or 2 times, but never 4 times! So glad he is okay. Can't wait to hear the juicy details. Smile
