I had a repeat with my second kiddo due to his health issues. I am now pregnant with #3 and will have another repeat.

I am in this boat right now...I had 2 vaginal births( pushed for 3 hours and they were delivered by forceps and vaccum, one at 6lbs 13 oz and the other at 8lbs 6 oz) My 3rd was a c-section because of placenta previa and I am not pregnant with my 4th, due July 10th. All the Dr.s here encourage VBACS, but say it is my choice what I want to do...I have nooooo idea what I am going to do...I am sooo confused....

Desperately hoping for a VBAC. My recovery with my CSection was horrific and I will avoid going through that again if at all possible.

My ODD was vaginal, my YDD c/s- I think I am having a repeat C/S as that was a far better experience. I am just worried about scar tissue, I plan to have one more after this and that will make 3 C/S altogether.

In 1999 I had a C-section with my first and only child if I'm lucky enough to get pregnant again I will have another I also won't go the entire 40 weeks I will more than likely be high risk. I've had long tme to think about this and I'm just more comfortable that way.

With this baby now I am having a repeat c/s. No more kids after this for me, but if I did have more children I would certainly have a repeat.

I'm done having babies, but should the unexpected happen, repeat c-section all the way! I've had 1 planned c-section and 2 VBACs. I first VBAC was long, hard back labor, but the recovery was really easy. My second VBAC was a horrific experience; it was so physically and emotionally traumatic that I would never put myself through that again.

Because of my PIH and risk of pre e, they force me to C section. I was unable to do a VBAC with my son and will be unable to do one with this baby. They won't allow me to go naturally unless I go into labor at or before 37 weeks. High risk *sigh*
