My husband and I had wanted a second child for some time. When we were finally financially secure and healthy in our relationship we began trying. It took two years but finally a positive pregnancy test! We were thrilled, and our five year old son was too. We began planning right away, I did all the “right” things – ate healthy, exercised, and tried to relax. I had terrible morning sickness for about 18 weeks but otherwise had a perfectly healthy pregnancy. Everything looked normal, baby was growing just fine. I wanted to have a vbac and so they did a few extra ultrasounds to be sure our baby was head down, we discovered our baby was going to be big! I didn’t care. There was one slight question about me possibly having gestational diabetes, but I began testing at home and being very careful about my diet and exercise.
