Had my scan today. In theory, it should have been done at 37 weeks,

no such thing as too late. So she worked me in 'asap' and thank
heavens, my scar measures 8-9mm thick consistently across its entire
width. Since the risk of rupture is considered minimal with any
thickness greater than 4.5mm, I'd say I have very little to worry
about. Whew!

That's certainly good news! Very reassuring. Now, I'm just crossing my
fingers that baby gets uncomfortable in there sooner rather than later and
makes his/her appearance.

What does it all mean? I have *no* idea. But it's my life and I like it.

Just for a bit of background info, my original scar was found to be 'paper
thin' at the c/s delivery of my twins. I would have stood a greater chance
of rupture if I had attempted to labor with that. And because of that, my
doctor and I wanted to rule out that risk as I approach my attempt to VBA2C.

Good news about the scar thickness.

I did not realise you were attempting a VBA2C. I really hope everything
goes smoothly from here on. I will be attempting a VBA2C in early dec.

So glad to hear this good news. It looks like you haven't been in
here for a day or two, so maybe you are busy doing something else
(like having a baby) G!

Naw, I should be so lucky. This kid seems determined to stick in there until
it's actually due. Or later. I've tried repeatedly to get my girls to
understand that I do have to go back to the hospital, but it will only be
for a couple of days at most, and it will be to have the baby. But they just
see it as mommy going away again, and they get very upset. Sigh.

Today they went with their daddy to the company picnic, and to ride ponies.
I went out to run errands, because I might as well keep myself busy, but it
was too hot, and too much walking for me to go to the picnic. Ah well, maybe
next year.

I know it will be hard for the girls, but with any luck you won't be
gone very long. Will your MIL be there to stay with them when baby is
born?

No, she and FIL have another responsibility at present. My parents, however,
have agreed to come up morning or night - though our neighbor 2 doors down
will come sleep at the house with the girls, if we leave at night, and my
parents will take over from her in the morning. But so far, no baby. I'm not
discouraged yet, but a little bit, yes.

Awww. That's too bad that you're having to play yet another waiting game, and
in the heat too. I've had three summer babies, so I know how that goes! But it
will happen.
