The Countdown Is On!

I have 29 more days until Matteo is supposed to be here. I'm hoping its a few shy of 29 because I can't be induced (VBAC rules) and I need to go into labor by or before my due date. So, let the countdown begin!

I had my 36 week exam yesterday and everything looks good. Weight and BP are good. Matteo is head down - hurrah! - and my OB thiks he will engage within the next week and hopefully be stuck in that position. She also told me that we'll probably do an ultrasound at 38 weeks to "make sure" that he is head down and check his weight. This came as a surprise because earlier she told me my only ultrasound would be the 18 week one. And while I was very fed up with all the ultrasounds for S & C, I am very excited to get one last sneak peak at Tater Tot before he makes his debut.


  1. Nicole, I'm SO glad that you have a provider who's willing to do a VBAC. Hurray for maternal rights!

    I'll be willing everything to go exactly as you want it to.

  2. I hope you get to do a VBAC. That was my plans for the twins, but Thomas did not want to cooperate. Head down Wed breech Fri. The on call OB was all set to break my water til the ultrasound. Oh Well. It was all up to the babies!

  3. Yay, I was thinking about you and hoping to hear that Matteo was head down! I'm sure he'll stay that way, and I think you'll go into labor on your own in your 38th week... that's just my feeling ;) So exciting, hope the next few weeks fly by for you!!

  4. Yeah! I definitely could have done a VBAC with Josie if I had wanted to but the recovery from my elective C-Section was not bad at all - actually better this time than last. I hope it works out for you!
