Quoting Ivana, expecting #3!:" I have no idea how much this little girl weighs by now, she was about 11oz at the 20 week scan, but that ... [snip!] ... one goes to 40 weeks + she will probably get to 8lbs max. So not really that big. But I am only 5'2" so I feel huge, already."


both of my kids were nomore than 6lb 5oz at birth but they are girls. idk if this baby will weigh more b/c hes a boy but regardless im not pushing him out so it makes no difference to me if hes bigger or not :]

Quoting Ivana, expecting #3!:" all my apps say the baby weighs around 1.5 lbs in week 25, and your baby weighed 3oz more than mine at 20 weeks, not much of a difference, IMO"

lol I am hoping to push this one out, it will be my first time ever having a vaginal birth, and I know how much that part can stretch so i am not worried about her being 8lbs or so.

so your last two were through c-section? They told me if i go into labor my uterus could rupture and the baby will die from drowning in my blood [graphic](i have had 2 precious c-sec)..they felt im at a even higher risk of uterine rupture because this will be my third delivery in 3years so they feel my pregnancy's are to close and my insides have not had much time to heal. i didnt want risk anything so i went on and agreed to have a scheduled c-sec.

oh wow those are horrible scare tactics! The risk of uterine rupture is less than 1% and of those only 7% are catastrophic. I think the actual number is 0.6% risk of uterine rupture for moms with prior c-sections and for the first 2-3 sections there are no greater risks of rupture versus ONE prior c-section. I hated my c-sections, I have no medical reason for a third one, so why go through it, you know? To me, it is worth the risk of trying vaginally.

my oldest was 2yrs 9 months when my second was born, my second will be 2yrs 7 months when this next one is born, so there were good gaps between them, but it is safe to vbac even with 18months between births.

ohh okay. my youngest and this baby will be 16months apart. Its not to many doctors that will let me try a vbac around here. i called around and they are all telling me the same thing so i pretty much gave up looking for a doctor to let me try a vaginal birth. i hope you have a successful vbac :] keep me posted

Wow 9 days until I leave the triple digits on days until my due date!



Anyhow though, not much going on right now. It's hot and kinda like on/off rainy today so I'm really bored and it's kind of a downer day because of the weather.
