hi all! I have not been on the thread for a while since i left [just personal reasons, didnt have time wanted to focus more off internet] But i did have Scarlett on June 30th at 8:32 am! Went into Labor and Delivery a few days prior to contractions found out i wouldnt progress because of her head being lodged at an angle [just like with my son] so we scheduled for sunday and it was a GREAT experience. I got my feeling back within 30 mins after surgery, she latched right away and after they took her out they cleaned her and laid her on my chest and she never left my side. Shes perfect and has brown hair like me. I thought she would have blond/red like daddy which i would have been ok with but im kinda glad she got something from me ;)
Anyways here are a few photos!

Quoting susanesque:" Oh, no. No baby yet. lol. I'm still having horribly sporadic contractions this morning, but they still ... [snip!] ... consent/show up. That way if I can't have the birth I want I can at least have it happen at the most convenient time possible."

I wish we could schedule ours on a Friday! That would have made life so much easier, but no, our hospital doesn't allow that. The only way we could have it on a Friday is if it's an emergency. We had to settle for a Wednesday. Good luck! I hope you don't have to be scheduled/induced and if you are I hope that you get what you want!

Phucket: Yeah I don't have many maternity shirts and the ones I have don't fit right anymore. Oh well, so long as I'm covered who cares.



Mama: She's gorgeous!



Last night I was having some intense cramping and pain... but it turned out to be gas. LOL And then Hubby and I had an arguement... which some how ended up with me giving him a h**d j*b and then he was messing with my breasts and making me contract hard so I gave him a BJ... Gaw this man, I swear, even when I try, I can't stay mad at him.

So damn irritated. Put in a call to my OB. I woke up swollen everywhere with a low grade fever and a migraine. She said its allergies....sure. Then they told me they wouldn't be able to keep my induction scheduled for next Wednesday, and they had to move it to Friday. Just sucks knowing Im 2 days further away from the light at the end of the tunnel.



So I could use some advise... WWYD? DH is currently training for the promotion they promised back in Jan (long over due) and they don't want to work with him much seeing as they scheduled it smack dab in the middle of my EDD. If I DO go naturally he'll only be able to take a partial day off plus his regularly scheduled sat & Sunday off. But next week they have him rotating shifts (sun & mon from 10p-6:30a, tues& wed 2-10:30, and thurs& fri 6-2:30). Now they just set up my induction for Friday at 5:30a... That means DH wouldn't get there till about 3p that day. Do I ask him to just call in that day, or try and labor by myself with no one for support? I mean, my DS bd wasn't there for me (jackass was playing video games) so it's not like I can't do it, but I don't wanna resent DH for not being there. WWYD?

I am glad that everything went okay with the c -section.



She is beautiful. I hope everything else is going well for you and your family.

I would talk to him and have him talk to his bosses. It's not like he's asking for a week, he's asking for 1 day. Hopefully they can and will be understanding and let him have the day. If not, see if he can get someone to cover his shift for him so he can be there. I hope that it'll work out for you guys!!!

Good morning ladies!!! Had a great day yesterday, took like a 3hr nap then went to a friends for a BBQ and fireworks. I hope you all had a great day too!! Also, we got Brandon's bassinet which I am in LOVE with haha So excited! I can't believe that he'll be here in a little over 2 weeks, I do wish it was sooner though only because I want to hold him now haha But if this swelling and stuff keeps up then he might be here. I only want my Dr to be the one to do the C-Section so I don't want to go to the hospital unless I truly have to and she's on call...kinda selfish but oh well I don't care! She's been there the whole time and has assured me the c-section will be great and I'm scared that if someone else is there they'll want to induce me to see if that'll work first and the last time they did that my recovery was HORRIBLE!!!!

That is a hard one. I don't think I could labor alone or would even want to try. I know my DH would do his best to be there, but since he is in the Navy there are always circumstances that are out of his control.




I think I would ask him to see if there is anyway he could get the day off. While he is off trying to change his schedule, I would try and come up with a back up plan. Is there anyone else that you wouldn't mind being in the room with you until he could make it there?

LOL Way to be blunt about it. haha but it's not just about sex. We don't always argue and then have sex haha. My DH is just so laid back and sweet it's hard to stay mad at him.
