So I am hoping for a vbac, ds was an emergency cs at 36w4d.<br>
A little nervous about the vbac. Anyone else?<br>
I'm POSITIVE this is the right choice for me, just a bit scared.

This hopefully will be my 4vbac. There are quite a few vbac'ers here and a thread that was started a while back.<br><br>
I understand you being nervous, but it really is the best thing for you and your baby. I say give it your best shot. Stay positive. Keep supportive people around you.

I am having my second vbac. I had my first vba2c in 2006.<br><br>
Since I have had a successful one, I feel much more confident. I know my body knows what it is doing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Yours does too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I found the biggest difference was the recovery time. I had pretty straightfoward recoveries with my c-sections, and I tore a little with my vbac and the recovery from the vbac was still leaps and bounds easier. I could hold my 2 year old and could sit up on my own to nurse the baby.

I really really am hoping for a vbac too. I was going to try for a HBAC but my very own midwife told me I wasn't a good candidate so if I can have a VBAC I will be excited.<br>
VBAC's for all who desire them!<br>
cheers

I'm a VBAC Mom. I had my first two by cesarean and my next three were homebirths. We are planning a homebirth for this one, too. When I went to the doctor early on for some bloodwork, I casually asked if they did VBAC and he said "sorry, no". I told him I had already had three VBACs since my c-sections and he said it didn't matter! How scary is that?? So, consider yourself lucky to have a care provider who will even let you try! : ) We live in a very rural with one hospital and one operating room. They line those c-sections up like you wouldn't believe. That hospital has a 40% plus section rate! Kind of scary. Good luck with your VBAC!

That is seriously so ridiculous. I never understand this. Honestly, if I could vbac, I am not sure I would have told I had a c-section. I would just stay hairy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> (I know, BAD, but I don't even have to worry about it at this point).

yeah, but if you go through an OB at a hospital, you won't get too far before they discover the scar. During exam it is right there. And I don't know about anyone else, but mine is definately more noticable while preggo!

I have 4 scars and you can't see them at all. Maybe I lucked out, but you really can't see them unless I am completely shaven and you look hard.

I'm planning a HBAC. I had my c-sec in dec06. I just read the notes from my c-sec, and the dr said I had cephalopelvic disproportion!!! There is no way, I have a very wide pelvis, I guess he really didn't look at me lol
