Elizabeth Congrats on making it to the 2nd T if does feel great doesn't it. I wish I could say I have stopped or slowed down TP inspecting but I can't. Way too many inbreed in my now I think I may still be doing it when this one goes to collage. I am so sorry to hear that you had such a hard time finding a provide and that you will not be able to get the birth experience you wish. I can only relate in the fact that I have never gone completely natural and had always wished too. But they would push patocin on me each time which would cause the contractions to be more then I could bear. Thus I end up with the epi.
Congrats on making to 2T :) Welcome down here ;)
I had a c-section with my twins and it was heartbreaking that I couldn't even hold them until they were 13 hours old!! Liam had breathing difficulties coming out and so they were both wisked away to the special care nursery. Then I was in recovery and I got a glimpse of them through the special care nursery on my way to the room I was going to be in for 4 days. By the next morning, I requested to see them at 6:30am but the nurses were switching over at 7am and so I couldn't get in a wheel chair to go visit them until 8:30am!! That was literally 13 hours after they were born. It was the first time I got to hold them. The wait was excruciating! I'm hoping to avoid that this time with a VBAC too.
Congrats Elizabeth on entering the 2nd trimester, itsn't a amazing feeling to know that you can cross of another milestone on this journey.
