Once for about five seconds but then I realized how completely irrational that thought was given the cirucmstances and I never thought about it again.

I worried about it a lot during the last month of my pregnancy, but once labor started, I completely forgot about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was utterly and totally convinced that i wasn't concerned about UR when i was pregnant<br><br>
But when i got into active labor and the contractions were most concentrated over my scar area, it scared me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

It didn't even enter my mind either time (two VBACs).

I had a really long labor (35 hours), so I had a lot of time to think about it and have to say that yes I did worry about it. My entire labor that ended in c-section was under epidural, so I had no idea what real contractions actually felt like. Then when I was in labor, they seemed to all be right in the region of my scar and I felt burning sensations, so it scared me, but I just had to reaffirm myself by saying that if I was *really* having a UR, I would *know* it, I wouldn't just think it might be possible.

Once I read about it and all I kept seeing was stats that showed vbac is just birth, the less it bothered me. I don't remember thinking about it in labour and with 3 days of strong labour I'd have had time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yes, I did worry about u/r, and it's why I went to the hospital on the early side, which led to fetal monitoring which led to me being tied down which led to an epidural. But I did successfully VBAC so I can't complain too much.<br><br>
I don't think anyone's crazy to worry about it. It's great if you don't, but you're not nuts if you do- it's not like we're not browbeaten about the "scary risks" by OBs and such, you know?
