Hi ladies! And how is everyone doing??
Sooo, I am looking for opinions here, shoot em at me!
I am 31w1d, and hoping for a vbac, BUT, the hospitals that my insurance cover don't "do" vbac births. Realistically I can go to ANY hospital in an "emergency" and have it 100% covered, but I live in a small town and the nearest hospital that will "allow" vbac births would have me transported if I was in labor before 38weeks bacause they are only a level 1 hospital. I am worried that, with the case of irritable uterus, and the fact that I had DS at 36w4d, I will go into labor before 38weeks.
So, what I am considering doing, is laboring at home, checking myself, or having DP check when I am uh, not up to it, and go in as close to the end as possible to the hospital I want. But I had a placental abruption with DS, and again this stupid case of irritable uterus, so I worry, what if something goes wrong? I know I can handle laboring at home with just DP, and IF NEED BE, delivering at home, but is it too iffy? The placental abruption and emergency c/s was 8 1/2 years ago, and my first ob with this pregnancy said I am a great candidate for vbac, but I can't help worrying.
I don't know what to do, but I really can't handle another c/s. Well, unless something is medically wrong of course.
What are your thoughts? I am objective and realistic, so come on, lay em on me. please.
