<p>My history is complicated. DD (7) was delivered in an ER at 30weeks, emergent C-section, classic (vertical incision in uterus and skin) due to an ovarian cyst ruptured an artery.  I had severe internal bleeding.  DD and I were lucky to survive.  Truly, one of those moments in life that questions everything.   Fast forward many years,DD is a healthy little girl and DH and I struggle with fertility, unknown reasons, most likely due to the trauma of DD's birth.  All functions well, although we suffer 5 miscarriages.  2009 I get pregnant with triplets (through IVF).  My OB is very worried about the then-6yr vertical uterine scar.  The pregnancy is uncomplicated, I have NO issues.  Hospitalized at 31 weeks b/c of the vertical incision and increased risk of uterine rupture (we live over an hour away from a major hospital).  My OB pressures me into delivering early b/c of concern the uterus would rupture.  Trips are born at 34 weeks, usual transverse/bikini incision, all healthy and doing well now.  Now when my trips are 13mo old, I find myself SURPRISINGLY pregnant.   If this pregnancy goes well, I would love,love, love to attempt to deliver this baby the way a baby should enter this world.  I now have 4 children, have experienced very little in regards of labor.  My first I wasn't even conscious for her delivery and with the trips, you can imagine, it isn't your typical delivery (c/s or otherwise).  Do you wise mamas have any research out there that shows that I can VBAC with an vertical uterine incision (will be 7yrs old at the time of this delivery) and another transverse c/s incision that will be 20 mon old? TIA.</p>
