I just re-read the guidelines, and it would exclude people without a "clinically adequate pelvis" and includes *only* people with one single low transverse incision. Those exclusions apply to lots of moms who probably could successfully VBAC, I think! My sis had a VBA2C in 1992, and when she recently switched to a new gyn, he said "How did THAT happen?!" as if it weren't possible.

Ds was malpositioned, went into fetal distress...etc, etc but he really was FINE! Ughh. I just found out yesterday that I am pregnant and now feel a little overwhelmed as to how to start planning this and making sure I do everything in my power to make it happen.
