This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Well we are going to meet our little boy tomorrow morning. I'm scheduled for a c-section due to his size and my high BP issues. My last appt went well, it was really long. We got one last look at him and even got a few more 3D pics. Based on measurements he's well over 9lbs and in the 95% and higher for weight, head/abdomen circumference, and femur length. He's going to be big and long! My BP was still too high even though I've been resting constantly for the past 2 weeks straight. When I was checked my cervix has shortened some, but other than that no more progress. If we were going to induce he said we'd probably wait a while longer and even then there's no guarantee I'd progress. He also said of course the longer we wait the bigger he's going to get. I don't want any emergency situations occuring. I honestly feel good about our decision to go forward with a c-section. Yes I'm scared, yes I'm sad that I couldn't go through with a vag delivery. But honestly, I'm happy that my vag isn't going to be in shreds after delivering this guy. I know my recovery is going to be alot more difficult, but I'm going to have lots of help, so it will all work out in the end. Will update when I can.
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
