That makes me crazy that they would want to schedule a C when you've already had 2 VBACs!  Were they with a different provider? Do you typically go "late" with your babies?

Totally agree with pp; the ultrasound at this point isn't accurate enough to risk you out of vbac.  I vbac'ed a 9.1 pound baby with no issues and only the tiniest of tears. Oh, and you have not done...
