With eight weeks to go, I realized I’m missing the obvious — there’s a baby on the way in December.
There are many, many things in this pregnancy that I get to control. But this decision, I’m leaving up to my husband, and he’s still undecided.
Thinking about VBAC versus a repeat c-section was never a decision I took lightly. But the conclusion I reached is definitely the right choice for me.
When you think that something is wrong with your future child, the waiting can hurt more than the results.
Having a baby still after a miscarriage still feels so unreal to me that having the decision about whether to undergo a scheduled c-section or attempt a V-BAC is itself surprising.
Few people want a baby as badly as those who have struggled with infertility, especially those who have undergone fertility treatments. So can’t we trust abortion isn’t something they’d undertake lightly?
I wasn’t supposed to be writing this today. No, today I’m supposed to be doing something else. Giving birth.
I didn’t expect to say this for some time. I’m pregnant. And I’m terrified.
Infertility and loss is something we always keep quiet. No wonder it seems like such a lonely journey.
