    I had a VBAC. My first child was a c section. My others were not. No problems at all. I did know that I should keep in mind that it could end up in c-section again, but it never did. Your doctor will moniter the babies, size, etc. Have fun and I agree, God is blessing you with this baby!

    just make sure you are at a large enough hospital to handle any problems if they do arise. The major complication would be ruptured uterus. While women do vbac everyday, why take the chance with a podunk hospital. Not being ugly. My hubby delivered in one, and he refused to do vbac because of lack of support system. Anybody who wanted vbac had to go up the road to a larger hospital. Also depends on why you had csection. If your pelvis was too small, its still too small. If the uterus failed to have efficient contractions, there's a good chance it will happen again, but not necessarily. If it was malpresentation, as long as this one presents ok, there's an excellent chance it will work. Good luck on whatever you decide.

    The key to VBAC is understanding WHY the first C-section happened. Some things are correctable, some are not. Malpositioned babies, ineffective pushing due to overmedication, fetal distress .... these are isolated events that may not repeat themselves. But a small pelvic opening is forever -- ask me how I know. [​IMG]

    I too had a Vbac. First baby was upside down with the cord wrapped around her legs and neck (the legs saved her) she went into distress and I started having heart problems so emergency exit for her! [​IMG]

    Next baby, make sure you have a high risk doc and a hospital who can handle it, no home birth for a Vbac. But, it went beautifully, no problems at all for me or her. And she was the big baby!! I did that all backwards!! [​IMG]

    Im afraid as I had 6 hours of labor and about 3 pushes on my one and only I cant give technical advice but I want to say if you feel comfetable with it and youre hospital is equipped with everything it needs and if the first surgry wasnt for something that cant be changes like the other ladies said go for it , You may end up decideing that the whole pushing a baby out is WAY over rated once youre there and have the stiches to show for it [​IMG] but it can happen just fine . Just dont set youre self in stone on how youre labor and birth HAS to happen , I made that mistake I had so many ideas an plans and I just Knew what was gonna happen and let me tell you did I get a shock .

    My sister in law just had a Vbac. She had her oldest 7 years before though. I think it is safe as long as the 2 births are not to close together. She had no problems at all and everyone was came out great. I think if you want to try there is no reason why you shouldn't. If your dr disagrees maybe get a second opinion. Good luck.
  9. I wanted to try a VBac.. So was trying to go to a hospital that was 2 hours from me.. The hospital in my town doesnt allow Vbacs.. Good thing I didnt try for a Vbac.. Money problems made it so I couldnt go to the other town.. So I ended up staying in my town. I went in for the scheduled C-section.. Right when they opened me up.. My son wasnt even in the uterus, he was part way out. My old C-section scare had opened up.. And you could see him, he was just in the bag. First C-section was in 2001, son was born 2006. So it had time to heal.. The doc told me that if I had went into labor, we or both would be dead.. And the thing was, they told me if I picked up any thing heavy we could have died.. We just moved 2 weeks before he was born. And I was packing boxs and helping move furnature.. The docs here had never seen any thing like it happen.. The docs said it was a miricale that we both survived this pregnancy.. They said it they would have known about the opening of the previous scare, they would have forced me to abort. Cause it was to dangerous for me. But they forced me to get my tubes tied. They said I could never carry another baby because my insides were way to damaged..

    Please be careful.. And make sure they do more ultrasounds. Our hospital did two on me.. And since every thing was ok then. They never did another one.. Not even closer to delivery, cause I was a scheduled c-section.. They figured every thing was ok..

    Sorry if this was to descriptive. I just was saying that this is a possibility.. Sort of a warning. ..Although I dont know how many times this has ever happened.. But it scared my whole family to death. It even made my doctor cry. There was no way to tell it happened. I showed no signs of distress.. Nothing..

    I wanted VBAC with my last child but the doctor looked at my history and advised against it. Sometimes it's just not possible but as all these other smart women have said if the doctor supports you and has the facilities and you know that at any moment you could end up an emergency C-sec I would certainly give it a try.
