So the lower body is getting a lil' thicker!  I am going to blame it on all the extra fluid:)  Not the carmel creams at 10 pm.

Some inquiring minds want to know why I have had c-sections.  So here it is!  Taylor was lying sideways when my water broke, she was transverse the whoel pregnancy.  Rylan's fluid was dangerously low so we had an emergency c-section.  And well, #3, we're just figuring we will have to do a c-section for some reason!  Last wek checked Harper was breech.



  1. Well, I had my last baby a couple years ago, but it's been a lot harder to get rid of every last bit of weight. I've constantly hovered around 3-7 pounds to go, partly due to injuries and sickness. Anyway, my new goal is to beat you in losing the rest of my baby weight plus an extra 5 pounds.... Maybe if I make it competitive for myself it'll work! I'm going to take some before and after pics so I can send them in, maybe that will motivate also (:

  2. Wonder if you have a bi-cornette {sp?} uterus -- some just don't position the baby right. Could be why you had a hard time getting pregnant before....
    But, I wouldn't do a vaginal delivery after 2 fairly close c-sections. :) Good luck!

  3. My babies sideways! Was planning a c-section regardless, the first vaginal was tough enough as the baby was stuck forever that I would rather the soreness after the c-section!! Do you take anything for pain post c-section while breastfeeding?
    Also, another question which may be stupid but saw about barefoot exercising on FB, but do you burn the same number of calories working out barefoot as with sneakers on?

  4. I just found out that the position of the baby in the womb is often affected by whether or not the mom's pelvis and spine are correctly aligned; I ended up having an emergency c-section after 56 hours of labor (drug free) with my first. Ouch :). But I have a friend who is a chiropractor who has had lots of success helping women have VBACS just by gently realigning their spine and pelvis during pregnancy. So I've started chiropractic care, and I'm going to try for a natural vaginal birth with number #2. My first baby favored transverse positions in my womb all pregnancy, and in labor she turned to posterior and got stuck...and her heartrate became techacardic for too long and we had to do the c-section. Babies lying transverse or turning posterior is a red flag for chiropractors because it signals that something about the pelvis and/or spine is out of alignment, etc.

    If what I'm hearing about chiropractic care is correct, my next labor should be much faster and hopefully vaginal because my body should be in better alignment after all the chiro care. My friend specializes in pregnancy care as a chiro...wish I'd known her before I had my first!

    That said: If I were having a second so close after my first, I wouldn't think it wise to attempt a vaginal birth. Besides Lindsay: you know your body and your baby better than anyone at this point; do what's best for the both of you!!! I am in Canada, and the ban on breech vaginal birth has been lifted, so women can deliver breech vaginally...but I was pretty sure I'd heard that most places in the USA a breech position is automatic c-section...

    We all have to work within the system and resources we have :). We can only ever do our best; past this, just gotta pray for God's protection as we deliver our little ones, no matter how they come :)
