Well I started having some anxiety about my upcoming c/s, but now I am more relaxed about the situation after talking with the anestesiologist at my appt the other day, it just made me feel better. I also met with the dr who will perform the surgery, both have put me at ease a bit more. Although honestly I sure would like to go into labor on my own and then have a c/s, but IDK if that will happen(the likelihood is not). I just wish that for me and the baby the time would be essentially right, that would make me feel better about the whole thing. I have been trying to do stuff to make labor happen, but nothing is.
For me I also agree with my particular situation with DD things went from fine to really bad in a short time, it was obvious by all the medical staff and my family that something was really wrong and that the safest thing for all DD and me was to get her asap. I still have a bit of a chip on my shoulder because our local midwife really insulted me by saying the only reason I had a c/s was because I was scared. Yeah feeling your uterus give out and your child being stuck beyond belief is pretty scary(she's since changed her tune after the same thing happened to her friend). Still I get these looks from other women at times when explaining my situation. The only person who has truly understood was my SIL because she has fought hard to have VBACs and one of the things is to NOT have a T-incision on your uterus(which is exactly what I have).
I guess for me the risks of a vaginal birth are really real, yes my uterus could rupture and it could really easily. I can tell it is more fragile, so for me that definitely takes over the fear. I mean yeah I'm scared, but at this point I'm so ready to meet my baby that fear is overridden.
If you want there is a support thread over in the B&B for all children by c/s-that may help you, everyone is very supportive over there.
