That's one of the stats I find reassuring. What I don't find reassuring is references to breech as a "non-recurring" problem. My babies were both breech, which makes me wonder if this one will be, too.
I'm becoming more pessimistic about VBA2C. I keep feeling that I'm going to end up with a section, anyway, so why fool myself. Last night, I woke up to pee at about 4 o'clock, and couldn't get back to sleep because I was worrying about this again. I've had a couple of months with a lot less stress about it, but it's coming back. I think my second section is the source of a lot of my stress. I let myself be talked into something I didn't think was okay, and I've been kicking myself ever since. I feel as though I wimped out and cost myself any chance of ever having a vaginal birth.
Sometimes I wonder if I should try a homebirth...although the only local midwife I found is already booked solid for July. It would feel weird switching care providers this late, anyway. But, I don't want an IV, I don't want an epidural, and I don't want a scalpel anywhere near me...whether for an episiotomy or another section.
I hope I hit another "up" soon...5-6 weeks of this mental state would be grim.
