Basically, I wasn't progressing, the OB resident checked me, said she'd check back in an hour or so, and if I hadn't progressed, we'd talk about augmentation. When she checked back, I hadn't progressed, but the OB completely overrode the resident, and informed me that they won't augment a VBAC for failure to progress period (which I know isn't true, because the resident was offering it, and my own doc, not on call, had also mentioned it as a possibility). The midwife and I were totally blindsided, because the resident had been talking augmentation only an hour earlier, and augmentation was what I needed. At that point, there wasn't anything we could do, she was offering c-section or nothing, and even the midwife was worried about the failure to progress. Baby was posterior still, that could have had something to do with it, but we were doing everything we could to reposition her during labour. I just needed time and maybe a little help via augmentation to get the contractions a little harder and closer together. So basically I was robbed of a vaginal birth because I'd had a previous section, no other reason, and the previous section would never have happened if I'd been more informed 5 years ago when it happened. Then we were stuck in the hospital for almost 6 days with the baby under lights for jaundice, waaaay overcautious, and seriously I was ready to kill someone by the time I got out--preferably the OB who decided that because I'd had one section, my only option was another. I so wish things had happened differently, and I'm second guessing every decision I made during this labour. I've got this lovely baby girl, but all I can do is grieve and question, and it sucks. And this was my last baby, so it's not like I'll ever have another chance to do this. I'm just so sad.
