Well, I had a successful VBAC. What people don't tell you is that childbirth hurts, it really, really hurts!

Contractions started Aug 26 around 300 am. They were 5 min apart and not too strong, but steady. They continued throughout the day, on and off. they were always there but not too regular or long. I even saw my Dr that afternoon and was 3 cm dilated but not in labour. She said I should be going into labour in the next day or so.

Well, that evening they got a bit worse, not too bad but I was really getting sick of them because I'd had them all day. Either be in labour or not! So I called the hospital and they said wait till they're so bad I can't talk through them and are about 4 min apart.

Hubby and I finally shipped the tot to Grandma's house just in case that evening around 6 and sat around. About 9, I was in pain but still hadn't reached 1 min milestone, but they were 2.75 min apart. I called the hospital and they said I could come in and be checked because I live in town. So I did.

I was only 3-4 cm dilated but my water was leaking. I was so happy to hear that, I was on my way and not going home. I laboured on my own using gas till I couldn't take it anymore. I got an epidural- just in time too, any longer and it would have been too late. I pushed for a couple of hours but Anna was stuck, so I got the forceps treatment and she was born at 3 am Tuesday the 27th.

she was 1 week late and perfect! 7 lbs 14 oz.
