My daugher is here!!

Last Wednesday, September 3rd, my husband and I welcomed our second child and first daughter into the world. She came about two weeks early, which I am very glad. I was so anxious to have her and meet her! :)

I went ahead and delivered via C-section, even though I preferred to have a VBAC. In the end, I went ahead with the C-section out of fear, and I was tired of the pain. I had been having painful contractions for about five days. On the fifth day they were getting closer together and hurting more, so I gave in and went to the hospital.

They checked to see how much I had dilated, and I had only dilated 3-4 cm. After days of contractions!!!! I had waited as long as I could before going to the hospital to increase my chances of having a VBAC, since my doctors really wanted me to have a C-section.

After being weary of the contractions and pain, and fear about things maybe going wrong if I continued to push for a VBAC, I went ahead with the C-section.

So far, praise God, my recovery has been a lot better with this baby than with my last. I am so thankful! My husband has been so helpful and has catered to my needs as I recover and rest. I can't pick up my son while I'm healing, but I manage to find ways to shower him with kisses and hugs and play with him as much as I can.

He hasn't shown any jealousy or anything. He loves to kiss on his baby sister and his face lights up when he sees her.

I feel so blessed right now. I have two beautiful, healthy children, and life just feels great. I thank God for his abundant blessings. He always knows what He's doing, and I have to remind myself sometimes that He knows what's best, and I have to trust in Him.

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am still tempted to say: really good!
