My Successful VBAC Induction Birth Story

Warning: this is a birth story, and I kept it very real, including all the rather gritty aspects of birth. Proceed at your own risk! It is also very long. So you might want to warm up your coffee before you begin. 😉 We walked into the hospital: my eyes red from crying, my husband on crutches, and my Mom…

40 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

I have put off writing this post all week, because I had no idea if I would actually be making it to my due date or not! But I am writing this at 3:00 pm the day before, and I would say it is a pretty good bet that I’ll still be pregnant tomorrow (update: I am posting this on…

39 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Another week down! It is so insane to me that I have so few bumpdates left to share with you. This could be my last bumpdate–or I might have a 40 Week, or even a 41 Week Bumpdate as well. Who knows! I’ve felt really good this week, and very energetic. When I was lying awake one night at the…

38 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

So this is 38 Weeks! I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that we will have a newborn (plus a toddler) within the next few weeks! So crazy! I’ve been feeling a lot better than last week, for which I am grateful. I felt so miserable last week that I just couldn’t help but wonder if this was just…

37 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Disbelief. I can’t believe that I am 37 weeks pregnant already. I can’t believe that I’ve reached the point where I can actually start watching for signs of labor. I can’t believe I’ll be holding a newborn in a few weeks, and that my VBAC journey will have drawn to a close. It feels so surreal! With my first baby,…

36 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

We’ve preregistered at the hospital, the carseat has been purchased, we’ve moved, and we’ve bought a minivan. We are about as ready as we’ll ever be for baby #2. Of course, I still have things I want to get done. I still have dates to eat every day (they say if you eat 6 dates a day it will make…

35 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

I am 35 Weeks pregnant (by the time I’ve posted this, I’ll be closer to 36!!). We are getting SO close, and I’m so excited! What is baby up to? Baby is around 5.25 lbs, and 18 inches long! Baby is working on developing his brain right now, and I am trying to aid that process by getting in my…

33 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Next month is baby month! That can’t be right, can it? Seven weeks left. The countdown is on. I’ve been a lot more tired and achy this week than in previous weeks, but I think that is due to the fact that we just moved! This past week has been packed (pun intended) with boxing up all our belongings, scrubbing…

32 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

32 weeks down. 8-10 to go! It is CRAZY to me that we are mere days away from July, and I’ll be able to say that next month is baby month! I feel like the further along in pregnancy you get, the more surreal everything becomes. The first trimester lasts a million years (because you feel so gross), the second…
