I am wrestling around with the idea of a VBAC. I spoke with my doctor at the beginning of this pregnancy to get his opinions. He said I'm a good candidate for a VBAC but wanted to wait and do another u/s later in my pregnancy to get an estimate of N's weight to see which route he thought we should go. He did say then that if she was looking like another 9+ lb baby that I should probably go ahead and schedule a c/s but if she was measuring much smaller (7ish lbs) that it was worth trying the VBAC. Just for clarity, C was 9lbs 6.5oz and would never descend which is why I ended up with a c/s with him.
I had my 31 week appt today and saw another doctor in the practice that I had never seen before (SB, do you have any opinions/thoughts on Dr. Y?). She came in and right away wanted to know what my plan for delivery was. Apparently my other doctor hadn't noted anything in my file yet and she was rather frazzled about that. She went ahead and scheduled the u/s for 36 weeks and we agreed to discuss it further then. She did go over all the pros and cons of a VBAC with me (which I already knew) and she didn't say at all but I got the vibe that she was leaning towards a repeat c/s. She also gave us a sheet to read that had all the risks on it and DH started freaking out and telling me that he wanted me to go ahead and schedule a c/s and not take those risks.
With all that said, what are your thoughts on VBAC? Do you think they are worth the risks involved. My big desire to have one comes with having C at home to care for too. I think I can care for both of them better if I don't have to endure all the healing like I did before. Other than that, I'm not really 100% swayed one way or another.
