I have been thinking about what the OB practice I have been seeing has said to me, WRT my having a VBAC, and while they claim(ed) to be friendly to VBAC, there's a lot of things that make me think they might not be as friendly as I thought.
At first appointment, were talking about pregnancy/birth history, and it came up that DS was 10 lbs 7 oz. The OB said that they do do VBAC, but that if New Baby is too big, we might have to reconsider, "Because there is a big difference between a 10 lb baby and an 11 lb baby."
At second appointment (different OB, it's practice of 4), she commented "VBACs are extremely high risk, but it's good that I have had a successful one already." and then, separately, "10 lbs isn't a baby, that's a toddler! Let's see if we can't have you a "normal" sized baby this time." and wanted me to do an early GTT because even though I had the GTT with DS, and (If I remember correctly, and DF thinks the same) the 3 hour one, and it came back negative, "You must have had undetected GD, and that's why he was so big." I'm no doctor, I have no medical training, but it seems like if I *had* had GD with DS, the 3 hour test would have come back positive. Plus, DF's family has history of large(r) babies, one of his cousins had a 13 lb baby right around the same time we had DD.
I have an appointment on the 28th, and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea just to ask them, point blank, if they are going to let me do a VBAC. Tell them that what they've told me thus far indicates that they *aren't* as VBAC friendly as they first implied/we first thought. I don't want to continue with their care if they aren't going to be supportive. Or would that burn bridges in case I don't have (m)any other options, or any viable ones?
