Hi ladies - I also posted this under the c-section board. - I'm looking for any insight from anyone who's been through a similar situation. In short - my first labor went like this: Normal pregnancy with no plans for any intervention @ birth at all. Water broke, fully dilated 12 hours later, pushed for over 2 hours with no progress. The surgeon said that the baby was stuck in my pelvic bone and that I have a very narrow birth canal. At that time time they decided to do a c-section. Gave me a spinal which helped with the contractions but I could still feel them "down there" And baby's heartbeat was weakening so they put me under general anesthetic and did the c-section with me asleep. Mission accomplished, I'm healthy and baby is healthy. Fast forward 16 months and I'm pregnant again and EXTREMELY nervous this time. I have had a LOT of pain at times in my abdomen when my little guy hits me there, running etc. I feel like there is a chance that I haven't healed properly. I would like to attempt a VBAC but am terrified of both the same situation happening again, and even worse - something going wrong during it. They said the spinal didn't work as I have light scoliosis in my spine and I'm not sure that a spinal or epidural would work either. I'm scared. I'm looking for suggestions, thoughts, experiences.... I'm just bummed out. I went into my first labor calm, and just ready..... Now, I'm still months and months away and terrified of what will happen and what the right decision is.
