Ladies!! I need your help! Okay. So with my first, I had to have an E-C Section. Now, with my first being 18 months old...I am 8 months pregnant and terrified!
A VBAC is ideal, however, I'm terrified of a uterine rupture and harming the baby. I know the chances of that happening are very slim, it scares me bc I got pregnant so close in age between this child and my son; I feel maybe the scar hasn't had enough time to heal! Please give me some good VBAC stories, I need them!!
Now for the C Section option; I'm thinking of doing this bc this way, the chance of a uterine rupture is much smaller and my baby would not be harmed! However, I am terrified of dying on the table or after from some rare complication! I wasn't scared with my first c section bc it was an emergency and I just wanted my baby out and safe! This time, I've had 8 months to think and think and think about this decision. And the thought of me dying and leaving my beautiful baby boy and soon to be baby girl without a mother just breaks my heart. I don't know what to do. And I'm running out of time.
Are these c section fears rational? Am I crazy? Were any of you repeat c section mamas scared? How did things work out?
