I just recently gave birth to me first child, a beautiful baby girl on February 4, 2012. My doctor insisted that I needed to be induced and after putting it off for about a week I was induced. It was not what I expected, I had planned to go all natural but when I stopped dilating after 6 hours, I got an epidural. Three hours later I had not dilated any further and the baby still had not dropped. Her heart-rate starting dropping and off to the horrible C-section room I went. I developed a fever, my milk never came in, we ended up back at the hospital because she wasn't getting enough breastmilk.. needless to say, it was extremely difficult to start using formula and not being able to breastfeed after all the stress of the C-section.
NOW, I am pregnant again, should be about 5-6 weeks along with my second baby. I'm very excited but as soon as I saw a doctor, he scared me half to death with such things as uterine rupture, death of mom/baby, losing my uterus, etc. etc. He told me that VBAC is something I really need to think about and that his hospital (where I delivered my first baby) will not do VBACS.
I'm getting ready to schedule an appointment with a different doctor I found online who seems to specialize in these type of cases because I do want a larger family, and I've read that C-sections have a limit. I want to experience a normal vaginal delivery where I get to hold my baby right then and there and not have to go through surgery...
The reason for this post is, is there anyone who has been through a similar situation where the babies are not spread out enough... that's what I'm afraid of... that I did not allow enough healing time between pregnancies.. the previous doctor never mentioned I would have to wait a certain amount of time, but he was a douchebag.
