VBAC Check-in/October

What's the latest? How are you feeling?


(@meltonjl -Hope I didn't step on your toes by starting the discussion. I didn't see a post for Oct yet and was curious as to how the VBAC hopefuls were doing.)

Re: VBAC Check-in/October

  • I’ll find out on Wednesday if I am officially cleared for a VBAC :). Excited and nervous, but so far so good on my end.

  • Great! Everything was still good at my appointment on Fri. Next appointment is Mon after next and doctor will check my progress. I’ll be 39+1 then.

  • @CB0425 you didn’t! I’ve been preoccupied with a newborn anyway! 🙂 I wish all of you the best of luck with your VBACs! As most of you know, it didn’t work out for me but I am still grateful for a healthy baby boy!

  • I was going to do vbac, but LO is breech and "sunny side up". I'll be 38 weeks this week. I've made peace with it.

  • RosieMommy2016 Understand. I think I've reached that point where I'm no longer stressing over it.  I'm just getting antsy to meet him.

  • @arome2311 - did you get cleared??  39 weeks today, and just had a membrane sweep to try to get things moving.  Otherwise i have an appt next thursday with an OB to discuss a RCS  :'(     Lets hope it doesn't come to that....

  • @jengibre_zorro Hope it works out for you!

  • @jengibre_zorro yup! Baby is measuring small, so my OB is really advocating for a VBAC. She didn’t even want to schedule a “just Incase” c-section at 41 weeks because she doesn’t think it will come to that :)

    @RosieMommy2016 I’m sorry that your baby isn’t in the right position. I hope it works out well either way.

  • 39+1 and not dilated at all as of today. Doctor wants to see me back next week and if no progress I will probably have to schedule a RCS. If I'm dilated at all he will possibly attempt to break my water. Sigh..

  • @CB0425- hugs.  I’m in the same boat.  No advice, just wanted you to know you’re not alone  <3

  • Good luck to both of you!

  • Well, after weeks of telling me the baby was head down (based on feel), we had an ultrasound done today and found out it is breech. So it’ll be a RCS next Thursday or Friday. Pretty bummed that I can’t even try for my VBAC but I’m trying to make my peace with it.

  • @shortstack930 I’m sorry to hear that baby is breech and you don’t have the option for a vbac anymore :(. I’m hoping you have a great birth experience and speedy recovery despite the setback.

  • @shortstack930 Hope all goes well

    At 40+4 today my doctor doesn’t want me to continue to wait. He has scheduled me for a RCS tomorrow. I’m pretty disappointed but working on accepting it. If I was dilated at all he would have attempted to break my water but as of today still no change.
