Oh my Lizard! Yes, I have some of the same thoughts...I too had not really "enjoyed" this pregnancy; had been anxious silently. Mine is a boy and yours is a girl - that seems to be the only difference. I too have weekly NSTs going forward, mostly to reassure us I think. Keep up your fluid intake and take care of yourself.
I don't want to hijack this thread into our conversations alone but I have really enjoyed connecting with you. Wish your little ones my best...

cettvm, congrats! that is wonderful! i am thrilled for you. i know how happy you must be feeling right now. i am FINALLY really enjoying my pregnancy and now i am big and uncomfortable, but loving every moment i can. i still have to do NSTs weekly but i am ok with that. i am really just now wondering what my birth is going to be like. i have not thought about that at all. i just want her and i to be healthy so if that means csection again, so be it. i would LOVE if my water broke and i got to have her the "normal" way...we'll see! looks like you and I are going the long haul! here's to hoping!

Lizard, I feel much the same way as you do. I have my next growth ultrasound this week but I am 35 weeks today and somehow feel confident. I had pre-e at 35weeks last time but something tells me I will go upto 40 weeks this time. Kudos to your good spirit.. and Good Luck!

This is such great news! And I hope she decides to come on her own before a c-section is necessary!

Just wanted to share my joy, since i love hearing other people's good news, i thought i could inspire some others too! I had an ultrasound yesterday that I was told would be my last as long as all looked good. I am 35weeks and all looks great so no more ultrasounds! she is 5lbs 7oz!! of course that could be give or take a pound but regardless i am so thrilled. my first son came at 33wks and he was barely 3lbs so this is monumental for me. i have a feeling i will go the 40weeks and hopefully can do a VBAC but we'll see since they don't induce past 41weeks if you've had a csection. as much as i would love to have a vbac i really don't care how she comes as long as we are both healthy. hopefully i can share some more good news in another month or so and my baby actually has some fat on her and gets to come home with me ;)
