And I feel great! Yesterday was my pre-op appointment (c/s scheduled for 5/22) and I walked right in and told the OB it was off. She was really supportive, we discussed my reasons, she listened to the heartbeat and sent me off to schedule my regular appt with the MW's next week!
Yay!! And I met with a doula on Wednesday and am hiring her this morning.

The part I was dreading so much was telling friends and family that the plans had changed, especially since I have people flying in for memorial day weekend, but that's done now too with only positive support so far!

So bring on the labor, and the VBA2C!!
Thanks for all the support so far!

That's great! I had VBAC almost two years ago and it was incredible.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

Yay! You must be so excited. I am impressed with your Ob's reaction. Some of them can get snippy and judgemental (SOME)

Thanks ladies! The support is wonderful, and I'm feeling better and better about the decision. I'm officially due 5/26, and will keep you all posted with updates. I'm going to sleep so well tonight, knowing I'm not walking in to an unnecessary surgery tomorrow morning!
