I have not posted here in a while but I wanted to get some opinions on my situation. I am 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant and I am having a dilema. My mother is coming into town this Sunday to help me with my newest arrival (#3). I just attended my latest appointment today and I am only dilated 1 cm and 40% effaced ( I've been this way for the last three weeks). My mother is only going to be staying for 2 weeks to help and I feel pressured to have this baby soon. I already have 5 year twins and we just moved to this area so we don't have a large support system. We really have no one to take care of them in the immediate area.
The problem is my doctor has ok'd we being induced next Thursday. She said she can do it with a low dose of pitocin (no Cytotex, etc.). I am really nervous about this and I am wondering if I should just go with the c-section? I had an emergency c-section with my twins because my daughter's water broke at 34 weeks and I was induced. I also had a spinal (to remove a cerclage) and an epidural for the labor. I only progressed to 4 or 5 cm. It was not a good experience.
If I do go with the VBAC, I am worried that I will end up with another c-section again. I heard planned c-sections are easier on your body. I am also worried about vaginal tearing or other problems related to vaginal births.
Does anyone have an opinion or suggestion on this matter?
