Well ladies, you have all been so great to me all these months answering my questions, helping me out and encouraging me that I wanted to let you all know that I had my baby last week on May 16. Unfortunately my birth didn't go as planed and was not at all natural. Instead I ended up with another section when at 9.5cm I started getting a sharp shooting pain that worried both my MW and OB that my uterus might be weaking and getting ready to rupture. But I have a beautiful healthy baby girl and I am actually very OK with the way my birth went.

My birth story is up on the May DDC board.

The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

Thanks everyone. We named her Bethanie Jean.

Having a healthy baby is all that really matters to me right now and although I didn't get the birth I wanted my family and friends are really surprised at how well I'm taking it. I cried for weeks after my last section and I was so determined that I wouldn't need another one, but after 20 hours of one thing going wrong after another, I'm just happy my baby is here and healthy. This time I also feel like the section was really needed, whereas last time I felt like I was pushed into having the section, so that makes a differece too.

I hope you ladies don't mind if I still hang out here, I've gotten to know you all so well that I want to continue to read your stories, and I still feel more conected to you than I do to most in my own DDC.

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! I'm sorry things didn't go as you had hoped but it sounds like you are both doing well and that's the most important part!
