Yay that sounds like a great appointment I bet it was really nice to hear the little ones hb. Its always reassuring to me. I am curious what they are going to decide for me with regards to delivery. I know I am not a candidate for VBAC because of the complications with labor and delivery with carson (including a severe tear that they had to repair when they were delivering carson because he was so stuck). But I went into labor at 37w2d (based on lmp not on when I actually O'd-I would have been about 36w2d). And delivered 2:10am at 37w4d. Since they usually do repeat c-sections at 39 weeks I am curious what the plan will be. We know I have issues dialating as well as other issues. So we shall see. Was your DD born premature? On the plus side we are another almost week closer to meeting our littles

I think there is time to discuss with your Dr. what she would like to do relating delivery.Your other appt is coming up so maybe you'll discuss it then.
DD was born premature that's why the shots.I have a short cervix so I am the perfect candidate. The bad part is I will have to give myself the shots and I am so scared of needles. I tried to test my blood sugar at home one time and I kept the needle over my finger forever and I couldn't do it.
I am hoping that DH will give me the shots,I think it will be easier.

Oh got ya. That makes sense. Did they determine you weren't a candidate for a cerclage? Your hubby could do it. If neither of you can do it, you can ask to have the nurse do it there. You can bring the med in and they can draw it up and poke you (they would only charge the admin of the med and thats it).There is plenty of time before talking about labor and delivery lol but still crosses my mind now and then. My main goal is not to deliver on DS birthday lol. I want them to have their own day.

It doesn't seem like my Dr. wants to go that route. My old Dr told me about the short cervix but when I discussed it with my new Dr.,she said that ,it is highly unlikely b/c I made it pretty far in the pregnancy(3rd trimester) without dilating and at the end the Dr had to break my water. She just wants me to do the shots to be on safer side.
My sisters in law have the same birthday 3 years apart and my fil said that they had to order 2 different cakes b/c the girls didn't want to share. I totally understand not wanting to deliver in the same day.

That makes sense on the just to be on the safe side. I would feel bad if they had the same birthdays. one because that means I would be in the hospital for my sons 2nd birthday and two they would always get stuck with having their birthdays together. At least if its a week or two apart, they don't always have to have the same birthday party. I could do one a couple weeks early and one a little late especially for the big birthdays (like 1,5,10, 13,16,18) type thing. My cousins kids birthdays are one week apart (but almost 4 years different).And they always have to have their birthdays together. Ones a girl and ones a boy so it makes it very tricky. They always get a separate cake but its still kind of a bummer. I dont' mind if some of them are together (i shared mine a time or two because my younger cousins was a week before mine and he was a few years younger). But your day is your day you know lol. Its hard planning carsons 2nd birthday (yes im already thinking of it lol). Because if i fall under the same issue with him, I will deliver early. So not sure if I want to do a meet and greet baby/birthday bash. Or do baby shower (friend is throwing one for me because she said she is going to do it whether I want to or not lol) in the beginning of march. And then do his birthday party a week or so after I get out of the hospital. I will be in there for 2-3 days depending on how I do. Could be up to 4 days if I have problems. I will still be in a lot of pain but will have lots of people to help me at least.
