The One Year Anniversary of My VBAC

Today, May 16th 2009, is the one year anniversary of my successful VBAC.  For those of you who went on that journey with me, you’re probably just as surprised as I am that it has been an entire year since those events.  It seems like just yesterday.  Many of you have had your own successful VBAC stories in that time, and for that I am so proud and thankful.

Last year, on this day, I was hooked to machines, screaming at doctors, and begging not to be gutted like a fish for the second time.  Though that day started out being the worst day of my life, at 10:01 pm, it became one of the 3 best and most important days of my life -- because at that moment, I pushed my son out of my body.  Nothing in the world can describe how important that moment is, and most people will never understand why that moment meant so much to me.  I birthed a baby.  Finally.  And no matter what I do for the rest of my life, that will forever be the moment I am most proud of.  That will go down in my history as the All-Time Most Mind-Blowing Moment of all.

So my VBAC baby is One today.  Happy Birthday Jules.  Thank you for everything that you have been to me.  Your Father, Brother, and Mommy love you more than words can ever say.
