please help me ignore an ignorant comment
please forgive me for venting here. i was going to post this in vbac, but i honestly feel more comfortable talking here, where i know there are people that understand/support me.
my mom and i were walking yesterday and she said something that really made me mad. i usually talk to her about the c/b and she's understanding, but this time she said something really insensitive. i mentioned having another baby and she said, " i just don't want you to get your hopes up. you are small, sarah." CAN I JUST SAY UGH, ARG, AHHHHHH!
this is exactly the kind of comment i do not need to hear when i am thinking in terms of a vbac. yes, i know it is also a possibility that i could have another c/b, but i would want to try for a vbac and would need utmost support. yes, i am small-framed, 5/2 and 115lbs, but can't i deliver a 9-pounder? (my dd was 8 lbs, 14 oz and 22 1/2 in long, and i still truly believe i could've delivered her vaginally)
why is it that i always feel like i have to defend my womanhood to people? i mean, i FEEL capable of v/b, doesn't that mean anything? i know i still need more facts from my med. records, but gosh...
