Awwww well done mummy!! My date is for 2 weeks Friday eeeek!! Im being sterilised as this is my final baby (no4). Plus if we do decide we want another we would need IVF again, so my tubes are redundant anyway :/

nicole: Glad everything went well! I was told my uterus was thin last time but they didn't tell me not to have anymore. I thought I couldn't until my new Dr eased my mind and he was even talking about a 5th!?!?! I'm getting my tubes tied this time though lol! Enjoy your baby and hope you heal quickly :)

I will likely be having my 3rd c-section as well as my area changed VBAC policies :( I had my first 3 vaginal and last 2 were c-sections...I am petrified as well. It literally scares me to death. I am not due til October though.
