Oh and one more thing...

I forgot this in my previous post - but the bub is now head down!! WOOHOOO - which means that my chances of needing a C section are lower. There still is a chance that the baby might turn back around, or a chance that we find that her condition necessitates a C section (such as if she does have, or is likely to have Osteogenesis Imperfecta) - but in most other situations, we'll be able to deliver naturally - which means a lot shorter recovery time for me. So happy for that bit of good news too!!


  1. Glad to hear of your good news! I bet your heart feels much lighter! My daughter has Osteogenesis Imperfecta and I did plan on having a C section to make it the best possible entrance into the world for her, however we were still undiagnosed at the time and we were given two lethal diagnoses. If you have to have a C, no worries... it's not as terrible as you may think! Thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers!!! :)

  2. Yay! :) Glad to hear things are going well.

  3. Also good news! If you do end up having to have a C-section, it might help to know that at least for me it wasn't near as bad as I thought it would be. My recovery was actually very quick, I felt pretty much back to normal after just two weeks! The pain was manageable, and I actually preferred that experience (recovery wise) to my vaginal birth. I also wasn't exhausted afterwards and felt like I was able to give my all my attention to Grant rather than to my own recovery. I know not everyone's experience is like that, but it did change my mind about how I viewed C-sections.
