YAY! I am so excited for you!

Nothing like a shot in the butt, eh? Hehe. And might as well make the scar good for future babies -- ya never know! I surprised myself very much when almost immediately after my 3rd baby was born, I thought maybe I'd do it again. While pregnant with her, I swore up and down she was the last. Hormones can make me screwy and I'm not doing anything permanent at this point. I'm quite likely done, but I'm not ready to make that call I guess.

ANYWAY back to you. Very excited and it sounds like your doctor is fantastic. Come on, Friday! :D
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.

Last doc appointment/non stress test/ultrasound today and first steroid shot. Steroid shot did not hurt as bad as I thought it would. Stress test and u/s went well. I asked the doc about the c-section and he said scar should be able to be across on the outside, and then he said, well I can do the inside scar across to if you are done having babies... I said, well I actually might want to do this one more time. He said Really??? Can you wait until I retire? I think this pregnancy was just as stressful on them as it was on me, I mean the pregnancy went well, thank God, but my history is so scary. So, he said if we do decide to try again, to wait at least a year. Hopefully everything goes super well Friday. So nervous!
