One more final and I'm done with my degree!
That's awesome! Congrats
What did you major in?
Thank you! Really looking forward to have a bit more time to spend on both myself and IE.
I'm about to go through the opposite, lol. When my boy is born in January I probably won't be on as much
Completely understandable though. Wish you much luck with your child!
Is this your first?
Oh wow- how're you feeling?
Amused. He always starts wiggling right after I eat and I just had some breakfast so now I'm watching my stomach move like in the Alien movies
I was in Paris when I was like 12 and it was already Africa tier
@Isabella Locke-MT when are you due if you don't mind sharing?
But I have a feeling he might be a little early
You had breakfast at 3:50 AM?
My husband wakes up at 3 to get ready for work. Usually I'll eat a little something while he gets ready and then go back to sleep for 3-4 hours
I hope everything goes smoothly for you and the baby. I recall when my son was born. My wife was in labor for 23 hours 😫
First labors are usually pretty long
But then your body gets the hang of it
My mom's first (me) was a c-section, and her second was only 4 hours
she got off easy
When you have a wife and kids, you want to avoid c-section as much as possible
iirc scheduling c-sections was very en vouge in the 90s
because it let doctors schedule when their patients would give birth
C-sections will put you out longer. I was under the assumption that once you had one you could not have another baby delivered naturally.
Since you're cutting the uterus or wte
No, it's very possible to do a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section)
But most doctors don't want to do it
and will fight you on it tooth and nail
I guess that's why they decided to discourage us from even getting a c-section in the first place
Yes, if at all possible, vaginal is better
c-sections dramatically increase the risk of placenta previa and placental abruption in later pregnancies
Placental abruption is where the placenta detaches from the uterus and your baby loses the ability to receive oxygen/nutrients
We lost our 3rd baby because the placenta partially separated from the uteran wall.
Aww, I'm sorry 😦
It's okay. It was 2014. It hit my wife much harder than me.
Yeah, we carry these little ones inside us for 9 months
