33 weeks, I sure feel a lot more uncomfortable...ALL the time! I'm having a lot of Braxton Hicks and he's very active at night, making sleep difficult. As I said last week, my blood pressure has gone up a bit and my medication was increased. I'm a little disappointed that it hasn't come down as much as I'd like. It's now slightly below borderline instead of slightly above, so hopefully it will at least maintain itself.
Somehow, even though I am fitting in short periods of activity and watching what I eat, I still managed to gain two more pounds. All this extra weight and the baby's growth is really making it hard for me to move about and just breathing is sometimes a challenge. I feel like I'm panting all the time! I'll be glad when he's born, but still trying to enjoy these last few weeks as a family of three. I know we'll never have this time with ER back again.
Have any of you had to decide between a VBAC and a C-section? How did you come to your decision?
