I don't have time for the amazing birth story right now and I don't even know if I remember everything right now! But, Baby Jack was born by vba2c at 39 weeks exactly weighing 7lbs 7oz. He is perfect and nursing like a pro! I know I never posted here but I kept up with the group since day 1, it's funny I was too scared to post because I felt like if too many people knew how badly I wanted to vba2c, I would have jinxed it or something. Crazy pregnancy hormones I guess! Anyone going for a vba2c, just know you can refuse ANY medical treatment you don't want! I spent almost 24 hours in labor and fought till the end for my vba2c, and boy did they try everything to scare me into a section! Good luck to anyone attempting to vbac! You can do it!

AWESOME! You must feel so great! I have a friend who had a VBA2C in a hospital...though luckily her DH is an MD so they weren't as hard on her!

Rest up momma and enjoy your babymoon!:
