Hey girls, sorry I haven't been back to update. Well... it didn't end as I had hoped. I had a c/s. Happy to report though that I had a gorgeous, almost 10-pound blue-eyed baby boy! :)

 

I went to get another BBP/NST as usual. I asked if they could check to see if my water broke, just out of curiousity. I had been feeling drips going down my legs for a few days but brushed it off as discharge (I know, gross!). Anyway, my water had ruptured a few days before; the test came back positive. I was GBS+ this PG and I know that it's rare for complications but once your water breaks risks go up. I was told to go to L&D to be put on antibiotics, which I did. The OB on call was did not want to give me a TOL... again, worry was SD (eye roll). They were estimating my son to be 11.12 lbs via u/s (he was 9.13 lbs). Anyway, I felt I had no choice at that moment but to do the c/s, b/c of the GBS risk. If it weren't for that and my ROM, I would've walked out.

 

Recovery has been a little tough but better than my 1st c/s. I was on Motrin by the 2nd day this time around. I also asked them to give me anti-nausea meds during the surgery and told them to NOT give me any sedatives (I was dopey w/my 1st c/s and it was awful). Overall everything went very well, as well as a surgical birth can go. Do I wish it had been different? Of course, but I am not dwelling on it right now. For #4 I'll go for a VBA2C or HBA2C. ;)

 

I am taking this c/s way better than I took my first... maybe b/c I have already experienced a VBAC, I don't know. Doesn't mean I'm thrilled with the c/s but dealing with it as positively as I can.

 

Thank you so much to all of you who have been soooooooo supportive!!! I wish all of you your best VBAC/HBAC ever!!!

Congratulations!!!  I had 3 c-sections, un-planned, and finally a VBAC for #4.  I, too, found that with each c/s, the recovery was easier - both mentally and physically.  Conrats, again!

Congrats on the big guy!!!  

 

Isn't it crazy how they over estimate?  Mine with DD2 was off a full pound--but yours beat that.

 

I wish you a quick recovery and a happy babymoon!

 Congratulations on your baby boy! I am sorry that it wasn't the birth you wanted, but glad that you seem pretty at peace with it. I admire the strength and courage you have to try another VBAC in the future.

I'm totally at the same place. At peace, but still would have loved to VBAC. In my case, I've never VBACed. I think I'm just taking it better because I knew what to expect and things were less scary/traumatizing because of it.

 

Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery! Congratulations on your new baby!
