A mixture of things!

I have been spring cleaning my craft room over the last couple of days and I haven't finished yet! I have a few more boxes to sort out and some scrapbooking albums need sorting too. It seems to be a trend at the moment, I have noticed a few fellow bloggers doing the same thing.

I went to hospital yesterday for my consultant checkup, I am now 34 weeks pregnant (I can't believe how quick it has gone!) They did the usual checks - blood pressure etc and also told me they think the baby is breech at the moment, which would explain the pain I have been in lately. It feels like the baby is trying to escape, It definitely wasn't that painful with Adam!

It turns out I have to have another C-section with this baby, not just because the baby is breech but due to other issues with my body! I haven't blogged about this before or even made a scrapbook page about it but it somehow feels ok writing it now.

I had quite a horrific car accident when I was 8 weeks pregnant with Adam, I broke my leg and fractured my pelvis quite badly. My leg is now full of metal work and is pinned etc, I'm ok and obviously Adam is absolutely fine but it has had a knock on effect. My leg is hurting at the moment where I have gotten a lot bigger and the extra weight is putting pressure on my pelvis.

So that is the main reason for c-section number 2!

Phew...... Depressing moment over!

Onto my 365:
On the 28th March I completed a page for my celebrate life album!

On the 27th March Adam took his first trip to A&E.....You can read about it here.

Well that's it for today, Sorry I rambled!

You'll be fine with two c-sections, mine both were. It is more tiring second time around but you know what you are in for :-) Hopefully your knee and pelvis will be ok again after all of the stretchy pregnancy hormones settle down - good luck!

Yup, I'm a twice over C section mum too! First one was an emergency one under general anaesthetic after 14 hours labour with a breech baby, 2nd was planned months in advance and done by epidural. 2nd one was definitely better.
The problem with the 2nd one is that you now have a toddler to look after whilst getting over the birth so make sure you rest and accept whatever help is offered!
Not long to go now, you must be very excited about meeting your new baby!

Gosh, I hope this spring-cleaning isn't catching.... ;-)

I'm sorry to hear about your accident, that must have been a scary and difficult time. The Boy was born 'naturally' - with the help of ventouse, on an operating table, because they were on the verge of an emergency C-section! I was so traumatised by the whole thing that The Girl was born by elective C-section. One of the best things about it was knowing exactly when it was going to be, so I could arrange childcare for The Boy!!

Enjoy these last few weeks, and rest as much as you can :-)

I don't think you "rambled" at all... It's a big thing, having a baby and there's a lot to think about, sort out, worry about. You need to be able to talk about it a bit and get everything straight in your mind, so you feel prepared.
At least you know for sure that you are having a c-section, so you can plan for it. Mel's right to point out it means you can organise your child care more easily - there has to be a plus to everything!
Hope your sore leg etc doesn't give you a lot of trouble in the next few weeks.
Does it mean that your baby will be delivered a bit early - 36/38 weeks?
Rest as much as possible for the next few weeks and do accept any offers of help - especially in the month or two after the birth, so you can heal properly. After all, you'll need to get back on your feet, so you will be a healthy mummy!
We'll all be thinking of you... you can "ramble" at us as much as you like!
