I have decided I am GOING to push this baby out of my vagina and that is THAT!! I have decided I will NOT schedule a repeat c-section, afterall. I'll let my doc plan the 41 weeks section, but NOT a day prior! I CAN do this! I TRUST my body and I WANT to give this baby life... NOT my doctor. I feel really good about this.<br>
Something just clicked today... I have GOT to at least ATTEMPT to deliver this baby on my OWN! This has all been so emotional for me and I have been round and round on trying to figure out how the HECK to get this baby here safely and *I* am going to do it!<br>
*BIG sigh* wish me luck, girls...<br>
PLEASE let everything go ok... *tears* (darn hormones)<br>
I'm going to smile now, have faith in MYSELF and my BODY and get this baby here when HE is ready...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Congrats and good luck!!!<br>
But...why the 41 week deadline? Are you absolutely positive when you ovulated? Isn't the average gestation 41 weeks and one day? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
If you don't trust your doctor, it's time to find one you do trust.

I am absolutely positive of my LMP...<br><br>
My doc says he would not like for me to go past 41 weeks. After that he'd like to section. The problem with finding a doc here is that i live in Italy and I have 2 OB's and a "floating OB" to choose from. They all deliver at the military hospital which is SMALL and doesnt LIKE to VBAC's anyway because they dont really have enough blood on hand in case of emergencies. I COULD go to an Italian hospital for an OB, but Italians do not do ANY VBAC's at ALL! So, i'm kinda stuck with what I get. I'm actually lucky I get to go this far anyway. I had to fight him for 4 months to even agree to the VBAC. My friend was told "sure, you can VBAC... but you have to go to GERMANY!!!"<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
