I am grateful for the decision my doctor made for an e-csection with Claire because she had stopped moving and was born barely alive because of a blood vessel that had ruptured. But I will never have a c-section again unless I feel it's absolutely necessary like it was with her. The recovery was 10 times worse than with my vaginal delivery. And my doctor does not do VBACs last I heard, so if I get pregnant again I will most likely have to travel out of town because I am not agreeing to another csection just because I already had one.
*Also wanted to mention, not wanting to start controversy over vaginal birth vs csection because I have experienced both, just wanted to share information.*
My first c-section was due to Emmie being a breech baby (9lb 7.8oz as well)
I was diagnose with marginal placenta previa with jackson and subsecquently hospitalized for 6 weeks due to bleeding episodes... He was taken via c-section at 37w 1d... the only comfort I have in reading this article is that while I was in the hospital I did have weekly ultrasounds so we knew where the placenta was the whole time...
