Also due in August. Mid-month, but expecting to go a bit over.

Are you hoping for a vaginal delivery? The thought of a csec actually scares me more than labour! I've never had one, but people that I know that have had them never had many issues, so I don't know why I'm so terrified of them.
I'm not really hoping for vbac, but didn't really like the c section either so who knows really. Some things can't be planned. All I know is I can't be induced and it's coming out one way or the other.... haha
I'm hoping for a second VBAC. First was induced at 33 weeks for severe pre-e, ended in EMCS. I was induced (yes, for a VBAC, there is no reason you can't be) at term for PIH.

I was induced for a VBAC, there are many methods they can use that are not statistically more dangerous for VBACs than for normal births. You can use "gentler" techniques like sweeps/stretches, a foley bulb instead of the gel/pessary, and you can use pitocin but it is suggested to keep it low and slow. I was induced via foley bulb then pit.

If it helps, my mom has had all her births via csection. Some scheduled and some emergency. The only thing complained about was the first poo because she would get cobstipated then that first poo was so real lol

I just don't want pitocin. My cousins all had it and it didn't work for them and labor was excruciating with pain meds. I know that's not always the case, but I'd like to avoid it if I can.

I want a July baby because SO and I are both July plus school starts back up 8/30 and I put in for leave until 10/13. And that's regardless of his birthday so the closer to EDD the older he is when I go back. So you get in a few weeks I'll be upping my raspberry tea and walking and sexing lol

I'm due August 31 with a girl, but I'll have a scheduled c section sometime during the 39th week, so the 24th at the earliest.

My daughter's birthday is August 30, so I'm hoping it's closer to the 24th so i can be out of the hospital for her birthday.

Eeh it feels so close lately! I can only speak for myself, but it seems this pregnancy has gone so mich faster than my eldest!! I think it's because I'm still working.. but it really has crept up fast!

Nice to hear from you all!

Hello, I am due August 22nd with our rainbow little girl, I'm still working and going up until my due date (if I don't go into labour before that) I think I'm the only one that feels like pregnancy is going by so slowly!! I swear that I've been pregnant for like 3 years

My baby is my rainbow girl too Wow, you're game working up until then!! What do you do for work?

Hehe, yes, it seems like I've been pregnant for so long, but then I freak out when I realise I have under ten weeks left!
