Just When We THOUGHT We Were Done...

Will & I have himmed and hawwed over having more kids, currently we decided we both have too much going on, and our hands full to have anymore children at this time. We decided that once Camden was in school, and the boys were older, and Will was on a paid fire department we would give it a try for #3.

We made it a point to take precautions to prevent anymore children in our future, but apparently the Gentleman Upstairs had different plans for us, and The Elwood Family.

Enter the mass amount of pregnancy tests I took last week in disbelief that this has actually happened to us! Two people couldn't have been more careful, but apparently no matter what we did it was meant to be.

We will be expecting our third in early May some time. Right around the time Benjamin will be turning 2. It is not that bad, I mean, heck Camden and Benjamin were closer together. But it is still a huge shock and surprise for us.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for a little girl, although I am positive this will be a third son. My grandmother having so many girls really set us Grand children up for a mass amount of sons I guess.

Although, the pink would be a refreshing change in my life that is filled with footballs, and fire trucks.

We'll see come Christmas time!

Congrats! Hope you have a smooth pregnancy. This time do you have to go for a c-section? Will they even allow you to try a vbac? It's always fun to have 2 birthdays in the same month too :). Both of my girls are in April 11 days apart.

I will not be having another c-section. I am currently interviewing providers who will take on a VBA2C for a trail of labor.
Since the ACOG guidelines on VBAC changed about two months ago, now encouraging VBAC, and basically spelling out that VBA2C is a safe option, that is what I will be going with.

There is no way I would be signing up for another c-section.

I knew that was a concern of yours that after having 2 c-sections you will have to have another one. Good thing the rules changed ;). I wouldn't sign up for another c-section either if I didn't have to ;). Thankfully my doctor is all for vbacs.

Congrats again on the surprise. I just watched a show, that just ended, on a woman who had a home birth after 2 c's. I see no reason why you can't try to have the baby naturally. Who wants surgery unless they need it.
