I just had to share this with you ladies! These are pictures of what I looked like while we were staying in a motel waiting to deliver. I have to deliver 2 hours away in order to have a VBAC. Last time, I was 5cm. dialated but not in labor, and they won't induce for a VBAC so we stayed in a motel for over a week waiting to have her. Anyways, I can't believe I'll be doing this all again Hopefully, the summer isn't going to increase swelling! Thanks for letting me share!

Sorry they're so big! I don't know how to change that!

OMG! You are alllll belly! You're so tiny everywhere else! (I mean that as a compliment! I always feel like my butt gets *huge*! lol)

Way to go for being willing to go so far for a natural birth!

You are all belly!! And I'm super stoked to hear about your delivery this time around too! Will you be doing the same sort of thing? Staying at a motel until labor?

Thanks. Yes, as long as all goes well, we'll be doing the same thing again. The only worry is if we go into labor and we're home. I have quick labor's and we're nervous we wouldn't make the drive. Last time we put a safety bag in the vehicle, just in case. Luckily, the motel made it so we didn't have to worry about that so hopefully this time we'll do the same thing. The only problem is how much money it costs and my husband's busiest time of the year for work will be around our due date. I may have to stay in the motel and have him come to visit or something. I don't know. Glad I have a few months to plan it!

So cute. I can see why you are nervous not just your body changing but all the circumstances too.

I know this isn't for everyone, but have you considered home-birth? Are there any midwives in your area who would attend a vbac? I'm just thinking a planned home-birth is safer, cleaner, less stressful (and cheaper) than delivering in the car

Thanks everyone! I get big like this with everyone of them and people ask if there's only one everytime. So I expect this one will be the same.

We have considered home birth. The problem is, I live in Wyoming and up until 2 years ago, midwifes were unable to independently practice here. They could only work in OB offices and follow the same guidelines. I was told, since they legalized midwifery that we were getting a midwife here but haven't heard of her being here yet. There are a couple midwifes in surrounding states that offer services here now. The problem being, they live further than the two hours and I'm not sure how that would work. I don't know. We'll see if there's any news or updates this time about the midwife coming and discuss it then. Otherwise, we'll probably plan the same as last time. Of course, I have said that if it came down to me being in labor and knowing we won't make the two hour drive, we'll just go to the hospital here and I'll refuse a c-section and really make them mad. Both my mom and mother-in-law have said, "Well, they can't make you have a c-section." Funny, how they didn't trust my vbac the first time and now they're completely on board. Or maybe the hospital will change it's outdated policies finally. Ok, end of rant.

Holy Cow! That's a lot of baby belly. Looks like you have a giant basketball under your shirt! You're lucky. I usually look fat until the last month or two, and then look preggo!
