Date on the Calendar

My c-section is scheduled for March 25 - 2 days before my estimated due date.  Just having a date on the calendar quells some of my anxiety about going through labor and delivery again.  The only way I would have a VBAC is if my water breaks and everything happens spontaneously and beautifully which is not a very likely scenario.  Last week, baby girl was breech and I don't think she has turned down yet.

I am recovering from a 24 hour stomach bug.  It was so brutal!  My husband and I both came down with it at 3 am yesterday morning and could not do anything yesterday.  Thank goodness Winn didn't have it too and I hope he doesn't get it.  I spent most of the day in bed trying to get comfortable and not throw up.  I had Braxton Hicks every five minutes most of the day due to dehydration.  Feeling so much better this morning.

In other news, my husband and I went to the movie theatre for the first time in a year to see August: Osage County.  The cast and acting were great, but I felt like I had been in a bar fight by the time I walked out.  Not a feel good movie at all.  Last night we laid on the couch and watched Steven Soderberg's film Side Effects with Jude Law and Rooney Mara - also depressing.   I need some comic relief!  And the weather is killing me - so cold and wet this winter and I think we are in for some more this weekend.  

Not much longer to go!  I'll keep you posted . . .


  1. Not long to go! That stomach bug sounds awful!

  2. TurtleMama, it's been ages since I've written! Have just gotten sucked into the whole motherhood thing. I can't believe you are about to have baby #2 already, and without having to do IVF! Amazing...
    I'm so happy for you and can't wait to see pics of the little girl!

  3. Yay!!!!!! I feel like I missed a bunch so I backtracked through some posts....sorry about that! March will be here before you know it! Excited for you. Hope you are all healthy over there now. Our adoption blog is back open...I changed it to private but stop by sometime and check it out. oxo
