Thoughts on Pregnancy Today

I can rarely come up with stuff to write on my blog so figured today I would just jumble a bunch of stuff together. First off lets talk about pregnancy and childbirth. As many of you know I had to have an emergency c section with my son because he didn't like potacin and his heart rate skyrocketed. My first mistake was being induced in the first place oh my gosh labor was awful I had no breaks from my contractions I had had no classes on how to work thru contractions because we had no $ at the time so basically I was stuck in a bed with a horrible nurse who was not supportive and felt like I had no control over the entire situation. Fast forward now to 2 years later and guess what I again feel like I have no control over my body and how to birth a baby. For some reason in the Houston area no dr within any radius will take on a patient who is trying for a VBAC and I also have gestational diabetes so double whammy. So my only option is to try for a homebirth with a midwife. I wasn't against having a c section in fact I had gone back to my dr that I really liked had a c section scheduled for Jan 7th and then hubby got a new job and my dr no longer took my insurance. I know bummer. So I was so frustrated and felt the need to look up VBAC's in Houston again. Well the only thing I could find was a midwife who does homebirths for VBAC's and we have an appt to talk with her on Tuesday to find out what its all about. So we shall see what she has to say. And one more thing during this pregnancy especially lately the one thing I crave is Burger King double cheeseburgers with no pickels and this digusting craving hits around 9 or 10 pm and let me tell you they taste so good. Did anybody else have a digusting craving that was not good for you. Okay thats all my thoughts for today.

I didn't have any disgusting cravings, but for some reason I couldn't eat chicken. Go figure...

Did you find out if you are having a boy or girl?
