Just curious if anyone is planning a vbac and if so, how are you feeling about it? Kinda early I know but it's on my mind a lot.
I had an unecessary cesarean with my son (chalk it up to not advocating for myself!) and a failed homebirth (hate that term!) turned hospital transfer/repeat cesarean with my daughter. Planning an HBA2C this time but I feel kind of...I don't know, lackluster about the whole thing. I just have zero confidence in my body and part of me just wants to sign up for another c-section and just give in.
The only thing stopping me is that I REALLY want to go into labor naturally (a chance I doubt I would have if going to a traditional OB in my area of very limited options and with my history of going over dates) because I believe it made a significant difference in my ability to immediately bond with my baby and in my ability to nurse easily. All those hormones seem to be really good for me :) I also don't want routine ultrasound or doppler use and don't do many of the "normal" prenatal testing such as the AFP test/GD screening etc....I just don't think I have the fortitude to deal with a traditional OB lol.
Anyway that's whats going on with me, how about you guys?
