I know it's a bit late in the game, but I'm hoping you'll let me join in. I just found this site, and from what I've seen so far, it's a great fit for me.
Here's my story:
I'm married and have a 2 year old daughter. She was born a month early after PROM by C-Section b/c of placenta previa. I had no complications from the previa the whole pregnancy, even though it was complete at 21 weeks. The day they were supposed to check it again, is the day that my water broke. So, when we got to the hospital, they did a u/s and found that just the tip of my placenta was touching my cervix. They decided that a c/s was the safest way for my baby to be born, so 14 hours after my water broke, I was in surgery. Conractions did start soon after my water broke, so I labored that whole time on my own. They said the contractions would help dd's lungs mature because she was so early. Luckily she had no problems and was 5 pounds 12 1/4 oz.
I'm currently 34w6d pregnant with a baby boy. I've been on modified bedrest since 21 weeks b/c my ultrasound at that time showed that I have a shortened cervix. It was 2.1-2.4 cm long at that time; repeat vaginal u/s have shown that it stayed the same and did not funnel. I'm also on progesterone injections as a precaution. I'll be off bedrest at 36 weeks and am hoping to get as close to term as possible.
We are planning a Doula-Assisted hospital VBAC for this baby. I'm pretty nervous about it, but I know it is what I want for me and my baby. Luckily I have a very supportive group of OBs and a hospital that is supportive as well. I know that many women who desire a VBAC don't have that luxury.
Anyway, that's the long and short of it. I hope you don't mind if I hang out here for awhile, even though we're all getting pretty close to term.
