On August 14th 2013 I typed these words at the end of a blog post about Willow’s birth story…
And I would be lying if I told you I still wasn’t devastated with how her birth turned out. I would give anything to have that natural birth that I had hoped for. I want that experience so badly and will forever yearn for it.
At that moment in time I truly thought Dustin and I had reached the end of the road in terms of building our family and I was so thankful for the three beautiful girls the Lord had blessed us with regardless of how they each made their entrance into the world.
But it turns out that wasn’t the case and on March 13th 2014 I found myself staring at a very faint, but still very real line on a pregnancy test in shock and a little disbelief.
One of the next thoughts that popped in to my head was that this could be my chance to have that birth I so desperately wanted and so I started my search for a VBAC friendly doctor. I found one about 20 minutes away and though I will have to deliver in a different hospital I am very excited about this adventure. My birth hopes are definitely for a natural unmedicated VBAC, but most importantly I want to bring a healthy baby home no matter how they decide to make their entrance.
And how about a little peak at our newest bean who is due to arrive November 22nd 2014!
We all are very excited to meet this little one and I feel so blessed to be the mommy of 4 little ones!
