My cousin is still in the hospital with a postpartum infection....
But I figured I would add another installment about my journey toward a home VBAC.
At our next midwife appointment (horns and drum roll, please...) my blood pressure was FINE. Back to normal. I was relieved. My family was relieved. My midwife didn't say 'I told you so.' But she had told me so. I tried to listen. I gagged myself on protein, soaked in the tub, quit working and tried to be nice to my poor husband.
Now, with my blood pressure in the 117/70 range, there were no worries. I was just really eager and centered. When I went home and started cleaning my refrigerator, I knew I was ready for labor.
