The BIG Appointment

It's with great joy and excitement that I inform you that our baby is doing great!!! He or she has a strong and healthy heartbeat and it was music to my ears to hear it! According to my ultrasound I'm 8 weeks, 6 days, but we're going to go by my LMP date, which makes me 8 weeks, 1 day and gives me a due date of June 4th! That will be such a nice time of year to have a baby. I can't wait:-)

I have the strongest sense (like I did with Brooke) that we're having another little girl. In fact, I just know we are. Every time I pray for the baby I always seem to naturally refer to it as a her. I seriously will fall off the table at my 20-week ultrasound if they tell me we're having a boy because I'm so prepared for another little girl. Don't get me wrong... I would love to have a little boy, I just don't think that I am. If my suspicions are right, our baby's name will be Adrian Reese and I've been mentioning that name an awful lot lately because I am so positive. I'll look pretty silly if it's a boy! Lol!

The doctor talk to me at length about my desire for a VBAC. I told him that I knew we had time to talk about it because I still have 32 weeks to go, but it's something that I think about a lot. He told me that he will support me in a VBAC if it's something I want to do, but he thinks that my best option will be for an elective C-Section. He said that I am not an ideal VBAC candidate and that he's afraid that I'll end up laboring and pushing to have a C-Section anyways. It's hard for me to accept that an educated doctor doesn't think that I can physically do it, but it's something I have to work through. If we do end up electing to have a C-Section, he said that we'll end up delivering the baby at the end of May. That's a lot to think about...

Okay, I'm going to go relax with John before he goes to work. I just wanted to share our happy news with everyone:-)
