And Then There Were Four, Part 3 of 3 – 3rd Trimester

This is the third and final installment of “And Then There Were Four – 3rd Trimester.” We checked back in at 39 weeks. We talk about our trip to the emergency room when we thought we were going to meet our little Guy. Flick and I talked about our anxieties and anticipations that go along with having a baby, even though it was our second.

We question the common practice of Midwives and Obstetricians only being available to deliver when they are on call. We LOVE our midwife and if we are blessed with another pregnancy, she will be our midwife again. However, we had a scheduled induction with Bell so we didn’t have the experience of having to call our doctor and rushing to the hospital. Please don’t misinterpret our questioning and frustrations for disrespect in any way. Our midwife is a very hard working, dedicated medical professional who helped us make a wonderful birth story that we will forever cherish.

After the hospital visit and being sent home to progress more, I became very impatient. In this episode I talked about my struggle with whether or not I should walk to progress or rest to progress. We talk about bursts of energy and waves of emotion.

You’ll notice lots of yawning when you listen to this episode. I was a very tired 39 week pregnant momma. So I apologize in advance.

And Then There Were Four, Part 2 of 3 – 2nd Trimester

Between chasing a toddler and fatigue, we took a long time to record another episode.

Flick and I were able to record this podcast and talk about what I was feeling and what was different for the second trimester of the second pregnancy. Transitioning from a family of three to a family of four was a big topic for us and we expressed our anxieties of how we expected to feel when that change happens.

A big announcement was made when we told the gender of baby #2 and how we’ll refer to he or she on the podcast. We also talk about transitioning Bell into a toddler bed and how she’s responding to the idea of becoming a big sister.

Anyone have a second baby shower? Were you hesitant? Well, so were we. We express our concern and appreciation of a “second baby” shower.

We had high hopes for a dramatic rush to the hospital. In this episode you can listen to our hopes and desires for our labor and delivery.

While this is the second in a series of old episodes that were never aired, we are excited to share with you the experiences of our pregnancy with baby #2. We hope you enjoy listening and find some helpful tidbits in the podcast episode.
