I am hoping/preparing for a VBAC and in some of my research I see that ACOG recommends continous fetal monitoring for VBACs. I have a fantastic doctor and I haven't broached this with her yet as I want to do some of my own research, but for those who have attempted or succeeded were you required to do continous fetal monitoring?
Also, this may be naive, but when doing continous fetal monitoring are you able to still move around? My understanding was that it was better to intermitent monitoring because of the limits on mobility and therefore less opportunity for gravity to do its work.
I would love this insight and any pep talks or insights from those who successfully had a VBAC with a baby over 10.5 lbs!! My son was 10.5 lbs and my 36 week ultrasound was only 2 ounces off. I actually "feel" like this kiddo is already A LOT bigger. I am trying not to be discouraged, but would love to hear any stories for those with really large kiddos.
