That is very, very common in my area. so common, in fact, that i completely believed it myself until i stumbled on this website. When people asked why i wanted to vbac, my response was always "i want more than three kids" and no one questions it. Know i have TONS of responses
anyhoo, when they do a c/s, they can take a look at how thin your uterus is and give you a heads up. But it's all in how much you trust your doc to not fib a bit to cover his rumpus. A friend of mine thinks her doc is great and is saving her and her baby by informing her that when he did her last c/s he could look in and tell that her pelvis wouldn't spread
: so she's having a repeat c/s for this baby.
She won't listen to reason, i've tried. And then she tells me that he recomended that she get her tubes tied! When she said no he said "well, we only do three then you'll have to" It's a sick, sick thing. It makes me want to cry
