wow! what a gorgeous girl! bet you can't wait to meet her...

i'm in the 'couldn't care less' camp when it comes to *how* you give birth

in the end, they did not think my son would have survived a natural labour (prem, very small and second from the exit!) so an elective section it was

and it was still a very special moment, even though i only got a fleeting glimpse of my babies before they were rushed off to special care

mr chick and i get very teary if we ever see footage of a section on tv

take it easy, T - not long now...

Thalia,

Just wanted to say Mazel Tov and that she will surely be beautiful. I'm sorry I haven't posted earlier (my old blogger account wasn't working), but know that I've been following your progress and will continue to until the passenger arrives. I'm so excited for you and H.

What a gorgeous little girl. I can't wait to see a color picture. My god, it seems like yesterday you showed us the two pink lines stick and now your almost at the end of your pregnancy.

What a beautiful girl! And as for the c-section, you know I wanted to go for the VBAC this time myself but it didn't work out that way. At some point I just had to let go of that idea and remember that the goal was the baby, not the birth.

I'm really glad that things are going so well for you.

I had a scheduled Caesarean birth (refuse to call it "section") with my daughter. I took a couple of months to grieve the lost chance of vaginal delivery / home birth, but I'm fine with what happened.

If there is a real chance you might end up with a C, it might be a good idea to get familiar with the procedure and to reconcile yourself with the idea. you don't want to be in a position where you feel you didn't give birth. Luckily, I'm able to both feel and say that I birthed, gave birth to my daughter, because I consented to the procedure that was necessary to deliver her safely, worked with the team to the best of my ability, and remained as present as I could during the whole procedure.

Likewise, you don't want to feel guilty if for whatever reason possible you can't breastfeed (and I'm saying that as a passionate breastfeeder).

Although vaginal births and breastfeeding are FANTASTIC, C's and formula were invented for a reason, and should you need one or both, that does not make you a bad mother - just a mother who does what's best for her baby, no matter what the police says.

I couldn't agree more with the above commenter. Put your health first, and do what you think is right. There are no right or wrong answers to suit every situation.

Your baby looks beautiful - what stunning shots!

Amazing! So great to see photos of YOUR baby!

Sunny Jenny

That must be so amazing to see your baby's face! You're so close now! Thank you so much for supporting me and always offering such great advice! I really appreciate your support! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Wow, what a beauty!! She looks like she might have a pretty keen sense of humor, too!
