First, thanks to all of you who have provided me with wisdom, knowledge and encouragement! I credit much of my confidence to the stories I've read here.
I started having contractions around 1am, but they were maybe 30-60 minutes apart and no biggie. At around 9 they were still really mild but coming every couple minutes and lasting 30 seconds or so. I called the MW, she said to call her with an update around 2pm. My DD took 30 hours so I was in no hurry, even though the hospital was 1.5 hours away (we live in a really small town). around 11:30 things started getting really real, and fast. All of a sudden I felt like we should leave and so I made some calls and we packed up and left home at 12:00. I hit what I now recognize was transition pretty much as soon as we started driving... 30 minutes later my water broke and I felt I needed to push. Called the MW and she agreed, suggesting we try to drive the 15 or so miles to a town with a little clinic. We got to the clinic and here's the only doctor, running across the parking lot! They take me inside and I pushed for about 30 minutes at which point the ambulance arrived. They loaded me up and the Dr and the RN who had been there came along. Our son was born 15 minutes later, all 9lbs 10oz of him, barreling 90 miles an hour down the highway! We arrived at the hospital around 2:00, got cleaned up and stitched up (i had what was probably an unnecessary episiotomy, but i wasnt about to argue with a nervous Dr who hadn't delivered since the 90s!) and were home by 8 that night!
It was the craziest day of my life, I am still in disbelief, but feel great! It was totally worth it to VBAC.
Thank you all again for sharing your stories, and I am rooting for all of you who are waiting to meet your babies....can't wait to hear your stories too!
