Birth story with pictures
« on: March 18, 2011 at 06:02 PM »
I finally got around to writing the whole story out and posting it on my blog. Here's the link, http://thewonderfuljourney.wordpress.com/2011/02/20/birth-story/ password is vbac.
The pictures are at the bottom. It also says a little about how he's doing now, how big he is etc. down by the pics. He's just over 6 weeks! I can't believe how fast it's flown.
And the story is long, but hey, it's my story. And it's a wonderful one! There's no scary stuff, just very positive and good, amazing natural vbac at 38 weeks, completely fantastic!

(And I went off the BP meds 4 weeks post partum btw, for those who saw my other thread. 3 weeks after I started them.)

Wow, what a story!!  Congratulations on your new arrival :)

Oh and p.s. can I ask you about your placental abruption?  I am very paranoid about that especially about how I will know if it happens?

Thank you :)

Thank you so much, ladies!

And @Lanespoli, I wanna say first that my placenta abruption story is very scary, if you really want to know, I'll tell ya. But I feel the need to warn you first. It was a very rare and extreme case of it.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I tried to read your story using vbac but I can't get on. I was interested because you mentioned BP meds. I am here because of Pre-e and thought maybe you had been too so I was going to read wha tyou had written. Could you tell me if  am doing something wrong so I can get the whole story?

Thanks
