1 Year Ago- Waiting for Labour
This was me exactly 1 year ago. I was 40 weeks and 4 days pregnant with Sweet Pea, desperately hoping that I would go into labour on my own before a scheduled c-section at 41 weeks. My first was born via c-section because she was breach (Now that I know more about breach babies I wish I had tried different methods to turn her) but I was really hoping to experience childbirth naturally with this one. It was a bit of a struggle to get a doctor to agree to let me have a vaginal birth after a c-section (vbac) but I had found one who agreed to let me have a vbac if it was before 41 weeks. I agreed to the 41 week timeline only because I was sure I would go into labour early since my water had broken 4 days early with my first. At this time last year, I had all but resigned myself to having another c-section and was going in the morning to get bloodwork done for the surgery.
Luckily, I went into labour that night. Come back tomorrow to read my perfect vbac story.
I am a stay-at-home mom to two little girls. My oldest is almost 3 and is known as Princess on my blog (Not her real name I promise). She has been a Princess ever since she got her first princess costume. My youngest just turned a year old and will be referred to as Sweet Pea. I'm sure she will follow in her sister's royal footsteps which is the reason I called my blog Parenting Princesses.
I'm also a recent graduate who is trying to decide what to do with my Bachelor of Arts degree. I'm in the middle of job searching currently
