really wanting a uc but unsure
I'm so sorry you have to go through this. VBAC has been considered safer than Pitocin and Epidural use yet it is continuously denied by health care providers. While I do not know enough about UC (I am also researching and studying this because when I have another child in 5 years I want to be fully prepared and have considered this) to give you any answers, hopefully bumping this up will get this post some attention and some answers you can use.
I'd personally want hospital interventions around if my babe was born between viability and almost 36 weeks. False + ffn tests are really common and often come from vaginal exams, recent intercourse, or blood. What signs of preterm labor were you having? Contractions? Are you effacing/dilating? What did the doc's recommend and why? For sure don't overdo things, drink extra water and take cal/mag supplements. My research says bedrest isn't often very useful, and weakens you too. Still, if your intuition says it'll help it your case, then listen to that.
I am 3 cm and 50% effaced since i put myself on bed rest the contractions have stopped....the more I'm on my feet the more i have them....I'm just trying hard to keep him in there just a little longer
Well do all you can to convince that baby to stay put until term, sounds like you're making good choices in that case. Let's assume you make it past 35-37 weeks wherever you end up feeling comfortable without a NICU. Do you want a UC or do you feel stuck with no options? If it's the latter, check with ICAN and local doulas for recommendations you might be able to get a home birth or VBAC friendly care provider. If you want a UC though, get prepared and keep in touch with what makes you most comfortable and safe. You'd do a beautiful job of birthing with your family I am sure. Their dad sounds great to step up and support you and listen to your needs in all this I love to hear about wonderful men like that.
