Wow FT, 90 per cent chance of success is much higher than I've been told, but I have had 2 sections.

Think I may have to go to my gp to sort my horrendously flaking, itchy, sore nipples. I am literallypeeling my bra off and leaving bits behind. Daily coconut oil is not working. Lansinoh might I guess. Ugh this is before the horror of bf even starts!

Love my doctors. Phoned up 8.45, appointment 45 mins later. Quick chat and look and I have 2 creams to get it sorted :)

yay for good GP's Spanner Claus!

Usually there is a 50-90% chance of a successful VBAC after section for women in my weight bracket, but the consultant says that the success rate increases the more you are towards the lower end of the scale (which I am). Maybe her numbers are a bit different because she specialises in bigger expectant mums and the goal posts change slightly with the other factors involved. She did say though that if I did have a section this time round and went on to conceive a third then there would be no choice for VBAC, it would be a straight section (though she didn't say why and I didn't want to ask!)

Maybe it depends on the individual but i am going for a vbac although i have had 2 sections. Nice guidelines state that if the pregnancy etc is otherwise low risk then a vba2c is not significantly more risky than a first attempt. My midwife was surprised I was 'allowed' and I had to discuss it with my consultant but nobody tried to dissuade me. Mind you I can change my mind later if I want!

I had the whooping cough jab a few weeks ago and although it didn't hurt when she jabbed me my arm was bloody sore for over a week afterwards!!

I had a mw appointment this week and baby is head down and just at the edge of the cervix - very glad as I was sure it was diagonally positioned! It seems to be a bit twisted though. Not quite back to back but turned a bit sideways if that makes sense. Have had a proper think about hospital bag and ordered a pile of stuff online last night so it actually feels a bit more imminent now that Christmas and New Year are out of the way.

E is being super cute. She keeps saying she wants to see baby then lifts up my top and lavished kisses and cuddles on the bump. She sometimes gives it a drink of her water (well, presses the straw against my tummy) and, her favourite thing, presses down with her hand then pulls back quickly shouting, "It kicked me"! :D Even when it hasn't.

I think the last time I saw TC, Eva was a sleepy little bundle in a sling....it's only in the last year or so that she's turned into a Ball of Terror

Thanks for reminding me QBM, I have to pack a bag for meerkat to take with her for when I'm in labour and throw a few things ins bag for me in case I transfer.

I had a great appointment with my midwife. She's not my primary but I love her so much more. If we go this route next time, she'll definitely be my primary. I got all my anxieties and fears off my chest and she told me what I needed to hear. I'm so afraid that I'm not prepared enough but she reassured me that I'm definitely prepared enough to follow my instincts. I seriously love her.
