Becks announced on his Facebook wall yesterday that wife Posh is expecting baby #4.  Fingers crossed it's a girl!

They are such a good looking family, a little girl would be a great addition. Who do you think she would take after though? Victoria or David?

I cannot believe Posh is able to give birth AGAIN with her petite frame. But Congrats to her and David :) I hope they have a little fashionista (would be a nice addition) !

safety is certainly a good question on Jan 10, 2011 @ 10:44 am

I'm less concerned about her small frame but the fact that she's had 3 Caesarians already. In many cases, doctors warn against more than 3 because the uterine scar can rupture while pregnant or when you go into labour. That happened to a friend of mine and it wasn't pretty! Thankfully she and the baby survived!

I'm sure the Beckhams will have top medical care, but even so - what they are doing is risky.

Today, I heard on the radio that the Beckham's have confirmed the pregnancy rumours and that indeed it will be a Girl they shall be expecting! Pretty exciting after having had 3 boys already, no?

Very a exciting for Victoria!
@mumaluv - is it better to have another C-section then?

She's due in July on Mar 14, 2011 @ 02:38 pm

If you look at recent pictures of her you'd never be able to tell she is expecting!

C-section vs. regular on Mar 14, 2011 @ 03:23 pm

@Lauren - as I'm not a doctor, I don't know for sure. But what I've always been told from friends who've had multiple Caesarians is that the scar tissue is a point of weakness and attempts to push the baby out (as during a normal delivery) can cause the scar to break open. All of my friends who have been in similar situations have had a Caesarian and were told that a vaginal birth was not an option.

This is different when a woman has had only 1 Caesarian - a "VBAC" (Vag Birth After Caesarian) is common, though certain hospitals and doctors may refuse to do it for safety and insurance reasons because it is more dangerous to the mother.

In the case of multiple C-sections, I have personally never heard of a woman who went on to have a vaginal delivery. And in my humble and unschooled opinion, I don't see why any woman should take that risk.

Makes me queasy to think about on Mar 14, 2011 @ 03:55 pm

I can't imagine wanting to try and push the baby out and in the back of your mind thinking "what if the scar breaks". I wouldn't want to risk it, but I also wouldn't want that amount of scar tissue in one area. Now I'm curious what her tummy skin looks like.
