6 Month Postpartum Checkup

My checkup with the OB was a success (if you can ever really say that about anything involving stirrups).  I’m actually two pounds lighter than I was when I got pregnant (only proving the adage “muscle weighs more than fat,” as I still don’t fit in a lot of my clothing and I no longer have abs, I have a tummy), and my uterus is “back to normal size” which I’m assuming is good news.

I asked the doc about my chances for attempting a VBAC with No. 2, and he sounded optimistic.  He said that I was a good candidate and that it would really come down to how the next pregnancy goes and how the baby appears to be fitting in my pelvis when we’re closing in on go time.  He’s performed 4 VBACs in the last two months, so I’m confident he’s not just giving me lip service about this only to ask me when we’d like to schedule surgery once we hit the 9th month marker.

Not that No. 2 is anywhere near happening.  I just like to know my options.
