Hello! I have never posted here before but I lurked while I was pregnant. I had had a csection with my daughter and my OB had left it up to me as to how I wanted to deliver my son. I wanted to avoid another csection but was terrified of a vbac. After reading all the success stories and advice on this board and with the support of my husband and OB I decided to go for the vbac.
I was admitted to the hospital on Mother's Day (which was my due date) because my blood pressure was high and wouldn't come down during my NST. The house OB consulted with my OB and they decided to induce me the next day. When they checked me around 7 that evening I was 6cm so they decided to get the ball rolling then since my BP was still high even after a day in bed. There was a little scare with the baby's heart rate but my wonderful nurse was able to calm me down and fought with the on call doctor who wanted to do a csection. 14 minutes after midnight my son was born! The recovery was 1000x better with the vbac and I felt back to "normal" so much sooner.
So anyway that was a really long story when what I really wanted to say was thank you to everyone who had posted when I was lurking. Your stories gave me the courage to attempt a vbac and I couldn't be happier with that decision! So thank you!!
