great idea for a thread!
So uh moving on from that huge fight back there...
I had 2 c-sections. My babies just don't seem to want to come out. dd was a footling breech, 44 weeks(accurate dates) tried EVERYTHING, and I mean everything to get that girl out. Ds was 2 1/2 weeks late , water broke, contractions that stopped and started with no regular rythm. No dropping, dialating, anything-just like dd.Went as long as we could without interfering. I chose another section so that he could avoid the drugs of an epidural. becuase my 2 options were cesarean or picticin. I had a wonderful OB, very well respected itn the natural birthing community.
I am trying for a third currently. I just had an early miscarriage. I have had about 3 now altogether. (one before each baby)
I would love to experience a natural birth this time. but I have to admit I am tempted to just go with what I know. As in, scheduled c-section. plus who knows what will happen this time? I probably have alot of scar tissue as well, and I must admit the idea of a tummy tuck for all my loose tummy skin is tempting. I got fat deposits on my upper abdomen from breech 44 weeker dd. And gaining and losing 60 pounds each time did a number on my fair skin.
Now that is not to say I will definitely have a section. ( I may be preggered now) But how safe for my current situation regarding birthing is it to vbac?
I definitely do not feel led to go it on my own. And no midwife would even take me for a homebirth with ds. I had a midwife as my doula in the hospital last time.
So, I dunno what will happen. I guess I just need to overcome my fears regarding birth either way. And take to it with alot of prayer
