About Me

I'm 43 and DH is 41. I have one living son who is 21, and I have 4 stepchildren, ages 18, 17, 15, 9 and my newest at 3 months old. They keep me on my toes and I love a big family..

I've been married for 4 yrs, and we've been trying to conceive for nearly 3 years after the stillbirth of our son, Oscar at 40wks. We are so thankful for our Rainbow baby, Phoebe Elizabeth who ended up coming on her sister's birthday! Now I have two daughters born on Dec 13th!

My Birth Plan

Initial plan with the specialist is induction a day or two after Christmas if all is well, or if baby is slow to grow or placenta looks iffy, a week or so before Christmas. Now that I have gestational diabetes, pretty much all of December is a possibility - which will make it a hectic month. She might be induced early. I also have a daughter turning 17 on Dec 13th who might have to share her birthday week with her new sister, and my anniversary on the 5th, so wow -it's coming up so fast.
UPDATE: Her movement was slowing and her fluids dropping at the 37 wk mark, so we induced early and after 2 days, she arrived at 6am on Dec 13th - just in time for Christmas. Totally screwed up her big sister's birthday plans, but she didn't mind and we made it up to her after Christmas when things settled down.
