My Dr. said I am a good candidate cause I had 2 previous vaginal births, however I read on American Pregnancy and it said a reason for not being a good candidate for VBAC is having diabetes and I have gestational diabetes...Plus I am sooo scared ot uterine rupture...So I have no idea what I will do yet....
I am a type 1 diabetic and had a vba2c. Don't let them scare you with that. Now, if it is uncontrolled and you have a 12lb baby, then maybe yeah, but diabetes by itself is not a good reason not to vbac in my opinion. Yes there is a risk of rupture, but it is a very low risk, less than one percent.

My baby was 8lb12oz and there were no problems.
