I am new to this sight and I am not even sure I am posting in the correct area...a litle confusing to me:)
I am 23 weeks along in my third pregancy and I am having a tough time finding a VBAC supporting dr./ hosptial.
My first csection I believe was completly not necessary!! I had labored for about 15 hours and finally was talked into a epidural well not more than 45 minutes later I was being rushed into csection for a baby in distress!! well I now have gotten my records and It makes me so angry bc the reason for my csection is FTP not fetal distess!!! it was a Sunday afternoon and I think the Dr. just wanted to go home and so they scared me into having a csection by saying my baby was in distress!
Baby number two I wanted to Vbac but no local hosptials allow it and my practice really used a alot of scare tactis to get me to consent to a RCS...I wish I had done my own research but for some reason I did not?
My water broke and I went into labor before my scheduled Section so I was pushed to the top of the list and had my section about 3 hours after my water broke...my contrations had gotten really intense but they never checked me so I do not know how far along I got... During the cestion the dr. said I had a small window on my uterus and then went on to say I was about to rupture and it was a good thing I had not labored longer etc etc... I think she was just trying to make me feel like I had done the right thing and distract me from the fact that she had cut my son across the forward when making the incision(he was sunny side up)!!!
Well with this pregancy I did not even go back to my old practice... I have been traveling over and hour to see a Dr/ midwife grou. that are supportive of Vbac's well I just found out that the practice/hospital that I was hoping to give birth at is changing their policy and will not be allowing VBA2C now!! so annoying!! so now I have to find a new Dr. and drive even further to a bigger hospital that does alllow it but just has terrible sucess rates!!
My questions is I have been reading over my post op notes and it lookes like I have a double layer closure which is good. But the first part that talks about my incision says "A low Transverse uterine incision was made in the uterus and extended laterally with bandage scissors...." does that mean I havea bikini cut? THe laterally confuses me? It almost sounds like they went up? which would not be good bc aren't classical incisions risker? and if that is the case it might be even harder to find a Dr. to take me on...
If anyone has any answers please let me know!!! Thanks!!!
