Way to go, Sara268, on insisting on that VBAC! It's the best feeling in the world...it really is. I had a medicated vbac with dd #2, nine days late, and didn't realize that I had actually had a vbac until the epidural wore off. Then the nurse came in and said I could get up and go to the bathroom. I was shocked! I stood up, walked, peed by myself, and got back in bed! Unbelievable!!!!! The epidural and long labor had made me kinda loopy, so that's why I say it didn't sink in that I had a vbac until I stood up. Best feeling ever!
I had an uc vbac at home with ds; planning on doing the same with this baby, whenever that date might be. Currently eight days over; feel just a bit crazed, but I want to protect her like I protected my dd #2 and ds. I feel like I didn't protect my first dd, since I allowed myself to be induced two days late and ended up with a section for ftp. What a bunch of bull, but I am damn sure gonna protect this baby. You're doing a good job protecting yourself and your baby.
And all of us overdue mamas deserve some sort of award, like a cruise, or at least a massage, for doing what's best for our babies and us! I know there are plenty of medical reasons to induce early and I'm not knocking those mamas, but those of us who are rejecting the medical community's notions of due date need to get some acknowledgement, so here it is:
Now, if I can just prevent myself from going insane until I go into labor, all will be well.
