I need to start working on getting this baby to turn around -she really likes to be posterior. But part of me is in no rush either.
I agree, regardless of the outcome I want all of us VBAC-attempters to feel welcome. I do think some part of each of us is going to want to replay the "what if" game if we end up with a CBAC, and that's normal. talk and discussion about that can be good and healthy to help you process the birth, blame and all that, not so much.
the prodromal labor is starting to kick in . . . glad and not at the same time - because part of me gets the urge to get up and walk or rock to help move things along, and part of me is like whoa! it's not time yet! With DS, I'm pretty sure I didn't have any until around 38 weeks or so, and I am only 36 weeks (as of today! yay!) so maybe, just maybe, this baby will come close to her due date without going over too much.
Also have been trying to visual the birth a bit more. It's hard because since labor didn't really begin on its own (active labor anyway) with DS, I am feeling almost like a FTM as far as what to expect. I just don't know. OTOH, when making a birth plan, I have so many scenarios going through my head, it's hard to pin down things like monitoring, etc. Ideally, I'd like intermittent (and know that the practice and hospital will permit) but if for some reason I need continuous monitoring, and my water has broken on its own, I'm really not opposed to internal monitoring, it allows more mobility than EFM. and mobility is very important to me. At least I know that being a VBAC I won't be given pitocin! one bonus, I guess. I was alot more absolute on my wishlist/birthplan for my first baby and saw all those things go down the toilet with an induction, so I am pretty flexible on most things. How are all of you on your birthplans?
