After some confusion and discussion, my due date has been moved back to the original - March 30. This also happens to be my birthday - I've always thought that it's a great time of year to have a birthday. I had a great appointment this afternoon with my obstetrician, whom I love, and everything is looking great.
I know that babies aren't usually born on their dates, and that really, due dates are not usually that important. But having had a previous c-section, dates take on a new importance. Especially when the 'deadline' of a week after the due date is when another surgery will take place, if this little guy doesn't make his appearance 'on time'.
So. With a few weeks left to go, this little guy is in the perfect position, my blood pressure has been steadfast (110/60 at my appointment this afternoon!) and everything looks good for a VBAC. Which is all I want for my birthday (other than a DQ ice cream cake). It is also what I'm hoping for with every fibre of my being, and even as I'm typing this, I'm realizing how disappointed I will be if another c-section takes place. (Especially since I've been reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth as of late - that's a topic for another post.) So please send some positive thoughts to this little guy encouraging a timely appearance (there's still plenty of time), and over the next few weeks I'll do whatever sensible things I can to help encourage things to get started on their own. I have a few *ahem* ideas... do you have any suggestions to share?
