I am pregnant with baby #3 and will be attempting an HBAC! I am super excited.

What were your feelings when you knew you'd be attempting an HBAC? Was it a surreal feeling? That's how I feel!

I just had an HBA2C myself! You can do it mama!

Can I offer one peice of advice that I learned over the course of my last pregnancy? Don't say try... don't say attempt or plan. You are DOING... Not trying or attempting. You WILL do it. And you aren't planning an HBAC, you're going to have one. It really (IMO) makes a difference in your mental standpoint when you take away the negativity of 'trying' or 'attempting'. You CAN and WILL do this!!

Congrats and good luck!

I'm pregnant with #2 and having my HBAC
Initially I had a bit of the "oh my goodness!" and now I'm just excited to be giving birth this time around.

I went in thinking "I'll have the best chance to have a safe, natural delivery for my baby and myself" and did everything to keep us healthy (diet, exercise, etc.).

GL!

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!

Okay. Haven't gotten used to replying to threads or how to do it. Sorry!

I am only 5w1d as of today and I'm super excited about GIVING birth at home. I know I can do this and I definitely should change my wording around. I CAN do this.
