Hi there! My name is Erika, and I have 3 children. Twins, 19 months, Elizabeth and Elijah, and a son who is almost 7 months, Joshua. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> (Almost, Joshua is 16 days after their first birthday!)<br><br>
I found this website looking into info for Vba2c. I had a csection with the twins, because I was only 19, and was duped into it by my doctor. I was going to be induced the night of my due date (never went into labor on my own, not effaced or anything, with twins!). At noon that day he called and said he would feel more comfortable doing a csection because twin b was breech... although he had previously agreed to flip him. So, out of convience I am sure, I got cut...<br><br>
Next time around, I was all set on a Vbac... This time I started to efface on my own. 50 percent, and was 1 centimeter dialated all by myself, which excited me since this never happened with the twins. At 39 weeks 5 days I didnt feel Joshua move. I tried everything, but nothing. So I went down and picked my sister up from her house to go with me to the ER (my husband stayed with the twins). They did all sorts of things to get the baby to move, and nothing, although we had a heartbeat, it wasnt responding right. During a biophysical profile ultrasound, he met almost none of the 8 criteria... They tried to induce (carefully of course, since this was a VBAC) but with a little braxton hick contraction his heart rate was dropping, and not coming up for a long time. SO, off to the OR I went! He ended up having the cord around his neck twice, and a true knot in it. He wouldnt have made it much longer in there, this csection was necessity, and I dont regret it.<br><br>
But now here I am, 2 under my belt, and I want alot of chilren. I am only 21, and dont want to be told how many children I can have, just because of this. The more times you get cut, more risks are involved. I really need a Vba2c. I know the hopsitals around here will not allow it, so before I get pregnant again, which wont be for a little while, since I am nursing (my natural birth control), I want to have my homework done before hand. I need a midwife in Michigan who can help me out!<br><br>
I have been married for 2 1/2 years to Daniel, I met him online when I was 17 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> hehehe! He is 25. We are christians first in our lives. Everything else falls into place. Daniel is studying now to be a missionary, and preaches at my church in my Pastors absense, and is the sunday school teacher. We will probably be leaving Michigan in 4-5 years, unless of course God calls him near home <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We do not vaccinate our children. They will be homeschooled, obviously when they get to that age.<br><br>
Nice to meet you all!<br><br>
Erika
