With the latest studies showing that the risks of problems after multiple cesareans around the same as one, I am planning a UC..not sure whether I am having a UP yet though.

I attempted a UC last pregnancy, and had unassisted labor, but transferred due to a partial placental abuption, and ended up with another c-section where they seriously nicked my bladder!

Wish me luck for this one!

*UPDATE*

I guess this was not meant to be. I started bleeding and cramping last night.
Thank you so much for all of your kind words and well wishes. I pray that my time will come again.

Yay! You inspire me. Best of luck to you!

When I was TTC, I was interested in the possibility of a UC (but not overly optimistic that I was a good candidate because of my age) but was absolutely sure UP wasn't for me. It's been a process of gradual growth to find out that it IS.

Whichever was you decide to go, I'm sure you'll get a lot of support here.

Thanks,sisters! My last pregnancy was largely unassisted, but I went for the mid point ultrasound. I am considering the same thing, because of placental concern, but I really feel like I want a UP other than that.

I'm so happy that there is a place for me to go where people understand me! I know that ANY dr. right now would consider me "broken".

Thank you all so much for your kind words and thoughts.
I'm feeling pretty sad right now, but I know that everything happens for a reason.

The time is even more bittersweet, because my oldest (20) is due to have a baby in five weeks. I'm going to concentrate all of my energy on helping her and her husband to have the birth they want.

My time will come. And meanwhile I'll spoil my grandbaby no end!
