hi, i'm new here and just wanted to do a quick intro post.

i'm currently expecting baby #2 - 17 weeks as of tomorrow. with my first pregnancy i had gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. the PE resulted in an induced labor that failed to progress, so i ultimately had an emergency c-section after 24 hours of labor. i'm really hoping to avoid those complications this time around, so my ob has already decided that we'll do a planned section.
i've been promised that a planned section will not be as brutal and exhausting as the emergency one was. i certainly hope so!!
i still have another 18 weeks or so before we'll start discussing dates. i'm due august 14, and my father's birthday is august 6. i was really hoping to schedule the birth for that day, but that will put me at 38w6d. with this being my second child i'm not sure if they'll let me go that long, but i guess i'll have to wait and see.

i have my "big ultrasound" tomorrow, so hopefully i'll have some exciting news to post then. ^_^
