Wishing you lots of luck and that you go sooner rather than later! I so wish I could have experienced vaginal delivery. Did you see on the World News that the OB/GYNs are now reversing their policy on "once a c-section always a c-section". Nice! Wish they had reversed that policy about 6-months ago!

Oh well! Looking forward to being done this week! Thursday is our big day!

Take care,
Val

Wow, you're so close! I wish I had the stamina you have -- there's no way I was able to decline a proposed induction date -- I couldn't stand being pregnant anymore! Please keep us posted on any exciting developments between now and any scheduled induction date.

Well, I have the added incentive of desperately wanting to avoid another epidural, since I've had 2 of 4 epidurals end up with a reaction headache, and the last time the treatment for it didn't work and I had excruciating "I want to die NOW" headaches for 5 weeks after baby was born, trying to take care of a new born a 4 other kids...it was horrid.

I hope this baby comes soon and naturally for you! Looking forward to hearing all about it and can't wait to see pictures and see how all the big siblings react! (I have 6 of my own eagerly anticipating this little guy's birth). Hope everything goes smoothly for you!

Oh, Robynne!

That is my biggest fear...the spinal headache!

Unfortuantely, I don't get to avoid the spinal or epidural due to the c-section delivery. That's one procedure I don't want to go natural!

I'll be checking in to see how soon you go...

Waiting impatiently!!! LOL
