I just got home from seeing my doctor, and everything is still looking good with the pregnancy. My blood pressure is great. No extreme swelling yet. No protein my urine. Yee-haw! The baby actually feels enormous inside me, and every night after dinner she has taken to shifting or rolling, which makes my abdomen look alive. (I imagine this kind of thing doesn’t interest most second-time mothers, but this is all a first for me. Crazy.)
I kind of hoped that my doctor would come down hard on one side of the VBAC/C-section question, but she didn’t, and told me, instead, that she felt comfortable with whatever decision I decided to make. She really is a great doctor, and of course, this is all reassuring, but it means that I still have to make the decision and be able to live with the decision I make. My doc thinks I’ll wake up one morning knowing what’s right for me. I’m not so sure it’s going to happen that way, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
