veronicalynne & CaliMommie: I'm glad that you enjoyed my slideshow. Thanks for the cheers and cute smilies.
mamamia713: Sure, I'll share some advice.
First of all keep on praying for guidance and for God do do His will. Keep up the Faith, remember things happen in His time not ours.
I suggest that you try sharing my slideshow with your husband. A woman on ican wrote to me and told me that her husband was moved with the slideshow and finally acknowledged(sp?) that he hadn't been too supportive of her after the csec and that he too had bitter feelings about the whole thing. He opened up to her and she was happy about that.
I did the same with my husband. I shared other peoples vbac birth stories with him. I showed him my favorite vbac slideshows and he accompanied me to a vbac support group (very important). This was all very helpful and encouraging.
I found my midwife by making many phone calls to different midwives and someone refered me to her. Then I came here on MDC and asked around for other womens' experience with her.
I ate a healthy diet whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Only non processed, fresh foods. NO junk foods or sugary things. Non spicy and very low in sodium. I drank lots of water. I took vitC with betacarotene, vitE, and Omegas 3,6,9. Plus I drank a lot of red raspberry leaf tea.
I read and read and read a lot on the ICAN-online yahoogroup elist.
I was not in a rush. I trusted my body to do it's thing when it was ready. I got up to 41wks & 4 days without getting stressed about it. I made sure to stay physically and mentally relaxed, well sort of-- I DID have 3 other little ones causing kaos all over, but I tried my best to keep my cool.
But, the most important thing was, keeping our Faith.
