I really want to have my baby by myself & at home! My 1st was born 19 months ago via cutting open my belly and taking her from me. I have been going to a CNM & was planning on having a VBAC in the hospital. BUT, after reading a lot of good books (esp. Open Season) it has given me the trust that my body Can birth this baby & I don't "need" the hospital to do that!

So, I know that uterine abrup. is very rare esp. if there are no interventions. Well, last night I sneazed of coughed in the middle of the night & had a pain go through where my scar is. I had gotten over any fear of abruption, but this really scared me. Has anyone else had this?

Sounds normal to me and you're right, birthing well away from people with sharp instruments is much safer! Lots of us have adhesions from our surgery and when they stretch or break they can cause pain. Perhaps if you know the signs of UR you'll be more confident that they're not happening to you? A twinge like that doesn't herald UR

I had a C/S early this year with my son because he was breech. We're talking about trying for #2 and I'm planning a UBAC. Just go with your instincts and trust that your body knows what to do, even if your mind doesn't. Good luck sweetie!

What most expectant mothers are not made aware of is that an obstetrician is a trained specialist in surgery.

When you go to a surgeon, that is what tends to happen.

"Vaccines are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get - eczema, allergies, diabetes, petit/gran mal seizures, GBS, TPI, POTS, JRA, RA, CFS, SLE, fibromyalgia, encephalitis, neurological damage, coma, or death."

~paraphrased from "Forrest Gump"~
