The first is me at 37 weeks with my first son. He was an emergency c-sec. After 2 hours of pushing at home, we discovered he was breech and that I’d crowned a hip, not a head. The next are of me, 9 months after my second boy, who was a sucessful vbac. I didn’t get a really good pic of my c-sec scar which is completely crooked :) Though, the way it curves, if you look at my torso, I’ve got a smilely face :) nipples for eyes, belly button for a nose, and the scar makes a nice smile! *laughs*

    That must have been such a shock! Your belly looks great, both before and after, and it sounds like your attitude is too — LOL re: the smiley face thing!! Congratulations on your boys.
