So I saw my doctor a while ago....July 27th and I asked him why he didn't want me to have a VBA2C....and I wanted a VALID reason and he couldn't really give me one. So I said, "Since you can't give me a straight answer to why you don't want me to have a vaginal birth....is there a reason why I can't at least try for one?" And he said there wasn't any reason I couldn't try, so he said the option was back on the table.

BUT he said that if the baby doesn't drop under the site of the incision and the pressure of the baby's head during labor can cause uterine rupture. I have NOT read this in all of my VBAC research, but I know a lot of other ladies here have more knowledge than I do, so I'm asking if any of you ladies have heard that the pressure of the head can cause rupture?? I would think that the scar tissue is stronger than that!!!

I've never heard that before... Maybe this is a way of him trying to scare you into having a section instead of going for a VBAC?

There is a condition that can cause the baby's head to push more to the front of the uterus (over the pubic bone) rather than down into the pelvis. I think someone here even discussed it?

I'm not sure what it is but I would like to hear others' thoughts on this!

Ditto. If it's the condition Jaci is referring to, then all women who have that are at risk for UR.... not just VBAC mamas. He can't assume anything until something actually happens. You really should think about finding a new OB... he def sounds like the type that will pull all kind of crap when you're in labor.

During my VBAC with my son he was called a "floating" baby. I was induced at 38w and he was head down but not yet engaged. Highly doubt he was below my c/s scar!!!

DS had a hardtime getting passed my pubic bone b/c his head did not cone since he was not engaged so the OB did a vacuum assisted birth.

Point of the story...My uterus held up like a champ!

Now everyone is different...blah...blah...blah...but ask your doctor for more info on this condition he told you about and really educate yourself on both sides.

YAY for the option on a VBA2C being on the table

Sounds like the lead up to a bait and switch in the delivery room.

That's what I was afraid of!!! I had a feeling this was a "let's wait and see" and then a "well, this is what's happening and it's just not going to work" type of situation! I told him FLAT OUT that I didn't want an epidural, that I wanted a 100% natural birth this go-round and he said that he will push the epidural because he "hate to see any woman in pain! Especially in labor!" <-----Um, hey Buddy, I've been there twice! I'm certainly NO stranger to labor pain!

I'll be on the phone tomorrow with the hospital I wanted to deliver at in the first place and see what I can get with them! Thanks for your opinions ladies!! I just wanted to make sure I wasn't reading something more into this than what really was there to begin with!

Ditto to the other ladies. I can't imagine what he's really talking about, except to pull a fast one on you in labor. At least he admitted that there is no valid reason to not VBA2C. That's a step (although small) in the right direction.

Do you have other doctor options?

You are the prime example of hy this discussions need to happen with the OB early in the pregnancy! That way you know where they stand and you can run for the hills if you need to!

He would rather trample your wishes and disrespect your independent ability to make decisions than see you in pain? Time to say "take a hike buddy!"
