I am more of a lurker than a poster here, but I have found your stories and knowledge tremendously helpful to me on my vbac journey. Thank you all so much!!<br><br>
My beautiful baby girl was born vaginally on April 30, 2010 at 7 lb 14 oz, 21 inches long (just a hair bigger than her sister, born by c-section). It was a long labor with 3 hours of pushing and a small tear, but I did it!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
FWIW, my c-section was due to 'CPD' - got to 10 cm and pushed for 3+ hours with minimal progress. I think the difference this time around was my mobility in early labor, insistence on trying alternative pushing positions (even though I had an epidural), and a SUPER supportive OB nurse (thank you Deb!).<br><br>
I'll try to post the whole story later, don't have time now.
