Happy Friday friends!
I thought I would pop by on the blog before I (assumedly) take some time off from blogging to enjoy our fourth member of our family who WILL be arriving sometime today! Even though this is my second go-around of becoming a mom and welcoming a child into this world, it’s hard for me to fathom that by tonight, Tommy and I will be parents to a daughter AND a son!
Today is Luke’s due date. The arrangement that Tommy, my OB, and I agreed upon after many discussions, questions, what-if-scenarios, and everything else in between is that if Luke hasn’t come on his own by this evening (5pm), then I will have a planned C-section. (I had an unplanned C-section with Ava).
I will share more of my thoughts on Luke’s actual birth story once it happens that includes more of my feelings and thoughts on VBAC (Vaginal Birth After C-Section) vs. another C-section with Luke, but I will say this: the reason for this particular “birth plan” if you will, is to give my body a chance to do a VBAC if that is what my body wants and can handle. However, if that isn’t the case, Tommy and I will be both thrilled and proud to welcome Luke into the world via C-section, as we did with Ava.
Stay tuned as we begin this crazy journey again with a precious newborn!
