I'm 34 weeks.<br>
I don't know why I'm just feeling so worn down about having a VBAC. Nothing specific but now baby is still transverse/breech. I have chiro and acupuncture appointments coming up to try to help. I just wonder to myself "why can't it all go smoothly?" Why do I have to spend a fortune which I don't have to turn the baby. I know the OB is going to want to do another ultrasound (it would be my 5th due to early placenta issues) to check for position if baby doesn't turn in the next week or 2. I don't want another scan and I don't want a big fight about it.<br><br>
Maybe it's just pregnancy in general but it makes you think how convenient it would be to just pick a date and schedule a C. I know that's not what I want and would regret it forever and a day, but I just am - worn out, or worn down!<br><br>
Are all these doubts normal and will it pass....?<br><br>
Thanks.

aWWWWW! i FEEL YA.<br><br>
I'm 33 weeks and i'm going for my vba2c. I have big doubts about u/r and safety ect. But I'm gonna do it! One thing that helps me is affirmations and meditations. I really get into that and boy does it boost my confidence! Have you tried crawling? I saw this you tube video and the mexican midwives made the moms crawl and the babies always turned (angelina the mexican midwife). Try meditaion and visualize your baby turning. Take a bath, realx and talk to your baby. Tell him/her he needs to turn so you can have him safe and healthy! Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I would check out <a href="http://www.spinningbabies.com" target="_blank">www.spinningbabies.com</a> for ideas on how to get baby to turn. I would probaby forgo the U/S too. No reason to do one. If baby is breech when you go into labor, you all can decide to do a c-section at that time. Some babies even wait to turn until you are in labor. There is still plenty of time for all of you.<br><br>
Good Luck!

I'm planning a VBAC homebirth in Sept in a very friendly (comparatively) VBAC climate and even I feel a bit worn down with trying to make sure things don't go to h*ll in a handbasket the way they did last time. Strangely enough, I actually entertained the idea of scheduling a repeat c/s the other day while I was driving around. I hated and continue to hate my first c/s, so for me to entertain this thought, you know I was feeling the pressure.<br><br>
Anyway, I owned that decision for about 2 minutes before my brain came back and I KNEW it wasn't right for me and that my HBAC will happen. The point is that sometimes it helps to step across the fence and check out the view from the other side. The clarity might be worth it OR you might even change your mind and that's ok, too.<br><br>
Good luck, mama, all of us out here totally *get* what you're going through <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Thanks, mamas. It just helps to know someone else understands and I'm not totally nuts (or at least not for this reason!)
