Well, I went to the doctor this past Monday. He asked me if I still wanted to have a "trial of labor", I said yes unless she was head up. I then asked if he could tell me and he said for sure. He then checked my cervix and looked a little confused. He then put his hands on my belly and said that he thought she was head up. They then brought the sonogram machine in and lubed me up. Before I knew it I was staring at her little face looking right at me. He then said that he would have to wait for the hospital to send out their schedule before he could schedule my c-section. My doctor was really sympathetic and sweet about it because he knew that I wanted to try. But, at this point I am fine with it. I have heard from several different people that the second c-section is so much easier then the first, and i didn't have a hard time at all with the first. I am just glad that I know where she is at and the lump that I feel is actually her head. The doctor said that he would try to schedule my c-section closer to my due date which is April 23 but that history could repeat it self with her coming early like Riley (who was 2 1/2 weeks early).

Since that day I was starting to get congested and have gotten progressively worse as the week has wore on. I even have an ear ache from my sinus drainage which I haven't had one in forever. Being sick is no fun especially when you are preggers and all you can do is take Sudafed and hope and pray that it ends soon. By now I am doing better but my stomach hurts from coughing so much but Reese is a trooper and is moving about to let me know that she is ok. The one good think about being sick is that I haven't been going to the gym. I have taken three whole days off which is huge for me., since I am there usually every day. At least for now I don't have Johnny telling me that I need to take it easy because I am!!!!!

Well, hopefully baby Reese will make her appearance soon and I will keep everyone posted as when she does!

Hey Traci! Sorry that Reese isn't in the right position for you to try naturally. But like you said, your first c-section wasn't too bad so this one should be fine too. It's awful that you're not feeling good, especially this far along in your pregnancy. Glad you're taking it easy!!! Love you :)
