Sniff, it's over

I had my final pregnancy related OB appointment yesterday, my 6-week follow up since it had to be rescheduled the other day. And now the pregnancy has official ended.

I decided to go on the mini-pill for birth control. My doc seemed happy with my choice since I prefer the pill and this one is safe while breast-feeding. I am going to keep an eye on my supply though.

Naturally I asked about my next pregnancy/delivery if there is a chance for a vaginal birth for me. My doc is very pro-VBAC so he'll do whatever he can to make it happen although he wouldn't risk me ruptering my uterus just so I can have my vaginal birth. I asked if I could be induced a couple weeks early to increase the chance the baby will fit and he's all for it if the cervix is ripening, otherwise the induction probably won't even work. Of course we'd make sure the baby was at a good stage too.

He does think my chances of a VBAC are good not that he can really tell now. But I said "don't you think there is a good chance I'd have another big baby?"
He said "Yes."
Me: What if I don't gain as much weight, won't the baby be smaller
Him: Even if you gained 15lbs instead of 60, that is your weight, not the baby's. The baby is going to be what he'll be.
Me: Are you just saying that so I don't feel guilty?
Him: No, you did not do this. But maybe for next time you can take up smoking.

He, of course, was kidding.
