<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> Just thought I'd introduce myself since I seem to be lurking and posting here more. I have two DC's: DS is 2 1/2 and DD is 10 1/2 mo. DS was supposed to be born at a freestanding birth center but when I went in to birth him the midwives found I was 8cm dialated and DS was feet first, actually one foot first. So they called an ambulance and DS was born by emergency cesarean, as I was starting to push.<br><br>
I got pg with DD when DS was one. Saw midwives at a hospital for a vbac. I went to 42 weeks and they threatened to drop me. Waited two days, had a NST and an AFI and they found very low fluid. I was 4cm dialated with off and on contrax, and they wanted to break my waters to induce. Stupid me, I agreed, and 24 hours of hard natural labor later, 2 hours of pushing, and another cesarean.<br><br>
I was and am horribly upset by my Dc's births. Just the other day DH and I decided that we do want another baby, and that we will probably UC, partly because the state we are moving to does not allow homebirth vbacs and I want to stay far away from a hospital.<br><br>
So, we aren't going to TTC until winter of next year but meanwhile I'm reading up here and loving to support UC mamas! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
