My OB retired this week due to a heart condition, forcing me to change OB's at 30 weeks. I met the new OB today, and was presented with options that I did not have with my first OB, and I'm a bit overwhelmed by the choices now.I had a c-section because they estimated my DS at 11 pounds. I wasn't fine with it at the time, but I have since come to terms with having had the section, and I was planning to have a RCS this time as well. My old OB was older, and didn't do VBAC, and I was ok with that. Being diagnosed with GD, I fully expected to have another, and today was told otherwise.I was told that I am a candidate for a VBAC, which I should have asked what makes someone not a candidate, but I didn't. He said that you can not be induced for a VBAC, you can not have pitocin, and because of GD, I can not go past my due date. I need to let them know at my next appointment if I want to schedule or attempt for a VBAC. I truly have no idea what I want to do. Part of me wants to do it, part of me doesn't. It would be so much easier to come home from the hospital to a toddler after a vaginal birth, this I'm sure of, but the rest, I'm not sure of. If you are having a VBAC or a RCS what made you decide one way or the other?Thanks!
