PREGNANCY

I am 13 weeks exactly today. I'm a third of the way to the end of my pregnancy and the beginning of motherhood once again. I'm so excited. I went to my OB appointment on Wednesday and everything went good. I got to hear the baby's heartbeat with the doppler and it sounded strong as ever. I talked to the Doc a little bit and had some questions, in particular about the C-section. I mentioned to her that the nurse-practitioner told me it would be automatic for them to schedule me to do another C-section a week before my due date since I have already had one. I asked my doc if they didn't do VBAC's and she said that it wasn't that she was against them but it currently wasn't possible because they don't have 24 hour anestesia at the hospital where I will be delivering, and that is one of the requirements for them to have. She did however say that the anestesia department was making some changes and who knows, they may have that available before I deliver. If that were to happen she would let me know and we would discuss it more in depth. That is a little reassuring to one day have the option maybe. Anyways I will post some belly pics soon as I have been making my hubby take pictures just about everyweek of my pregnancy to see how I'm progressing, at least when we remember. Today is the day to take week 13 photo.
