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.


  1. What a beautiful tummy. There is nothing more lovely than a pregnant belly.

  2. If I looked that cute when I was pregnant, I would be planning to have a #3 too!

  3. How is it possible that you can look skinny and pregnant at the same time?

  4. perfect round belly, that's exactly what I looked like almost a year ago too!


Let me know what you think.
