Hi ladies! My name's Bridget. I'm a STM with an 8 year old DS and am currently 13w+2d. I had a C-section with my DS due to being induced with 3 types of meds over the course of 3 days (it was horrible) until a different nurse (my guardian angel) came on duty after they started pumping me full of petocin. She discovered that my DS was breech.
According to my research, there really is no good reason why I shouldn't be able to have a vaginal birth this time considering breech was the only reasoning behind the C-section. When I first met with my OB/GYN at my 8 week appointment, she asked if my plan was to VBAC or have a C-section again. I said C-section just because I was uneducated about VBAC and was convinced a C-section was what I wanted/had to have (you know...once a c-section, always a c-section). My doctor's response was, "Good! I'm glad we're on the same page." Now that I'm interested in having a VBAC, I'm worried my doctor will not be willing to deliver our baby. She also warned me that I would have to meet strictly set guidelines for having a VBAC....what they are, I'm not quite sure but will be asking at my next appointment.
ANYWAYS! That's my introduction and why I'm here! Excited to learn more and join a community of women considering the same journey
