About Me

It's taken my husband and I since July 15 to conceive. We had a miscarriage in Oct 15 and a chemical in Aug 16. Really hope this is a sticky bean.

We have a 2 year son together and I have a nearly 21 year son from a previous relationship. My husband has 12 year old twins from a previous marriage.

My Birth Plan

I'm hoping this time I don't have to be induced and go into labour naturally. I would like to get in the birthing pool prior to the birth.
Update ** Looks like I'll be induced between 38 and 39 weeks due to hypertension and my age.
My midwife wants to use the scalp tracer so probably won't be able to get into the birthing pool.
Looking into hypono birthing as a tool to cope the contractions as I'd like to avoid a epidural if possible.

Was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 29 weeks. Been trying to control it with diet and exercise but 2hr post BGLs are still quite high. Waiting for appt with diabetes team to see whether I have to start insulin or not
