After a necessary c-section with ds, I have spent the majority of this pregnancy preparing (mentally, physically, etc.) for a VBAC. Have a wonderful OB/Midwife team who is supportive of what ever I want.<br>
During the 2nd trimester, I started having a "gut feeling" that something was going to go wrong. After that, I totally increased the research I was doing (including my own medical records) and spent a lot of time praying and listening to my heart and body.<br><br>
All that blah, blah to say I've chosen to have a repeat c-section. And I have had such a peace since I came to that conclusion. I know that it is what's right for me and my baby. So, I'm happy to take one for team April 08 DDC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Maybe I'll help fill the percentage of c-section births so there can be more successful VBACs and other natural births in our DDC.<br><br>
My baby girl will be born March 31 at 7:30am (unless she decides to come sooner.)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

The most important thing is that you feel in your heart that you're doing the right thing and have made your decision with all possible information taken into account, which is sounds like you have. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Good luck to you; if something had happened and you had ignored your gut feeling it would have been hard to live with. Just think you will be holding your beautiful baby here really soon!

Cool for you that you're feeling good about this decision. And if we succeed at our VBAC, I'll remember that karmic debt! ;-)
