Guess who is 6 months preggos? I know! Ok well technically I don't start my 6th month until tomorrow but if you are going to be that anal than go away. Just kidding. :)
So far everything has been well. For those that missed it, it is a boy. NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. Except for my one incident everything has been great.
Everyone I see swears I am little and carrying so well. That's just code for "girl your ass gonna blow up from here". Thanks for that.
So I have decided to schedule a C-Section. I know it's not what I said earlier but I am 100% sure.
The first thing that led to this decicison was that the doctor reviewed my records from Lael's birth and decided that while my previous C-Section was difficult that I had a 60-80% chance of having a vaginal birth without my uterus errupting.
While to some that sounds all warm and fuzzy. I was concered about whether I fell in the 60th percentile or the 80th.
But what really sealed the deal is the last weekend D was with us she asked who was going to take care of her and Lael when I had Bubby (no he still doesn't have a name but feel free to give suggestions. Preferably names that start with L or K).
It then hit me that most likely D wouldn't be with us when I went into labor and I don't want her to meet her brother a week after he is born.
I know it may sound stupid to some but she is my daughter as well. This is her brother. I want her there as much as I want Lael and Hubby there and so I have decided to let the doctors slice me once more the ensure that both of my girls are the first to meet the last member of this family.
So, I spoke to D's mom and she totally supports this and will let her miss school if needed to be there. It certainly kicks ass to have a baby momma that has some sense.
My next appt is on Feb 12th, so I will let me doctor know my decision. I don't know if she will schedule it then or how that works but when I find out my date I will totally let my bloggy buddies know.
Well, I'm past the half-way point. I have started working on his room and Lael is enjoying it. He has clothes, a bassinett and stroller/carseat combo (thanks to my little brother in Iraq), and thanks to Buckeroomama a bouncy seat.
I'm sure my babyshower (April 17th) will turn out great and I will get lots more stuff for him.
I am scared, excited, and giddy.
I'm having a baby.
He'll be here before I know it.
I don't even know how to take care of a boy.
I guess I'll find out soon enough.
