o im soooo glad to finally see this here! i had just said something to patty and t about it and wasn't sure it would be happening SO soon! but patty said she has been really wanting it to happen for a while now. so YAY!!! that was quick!

im valarie, 24, reasearching-planning-attempting a VBA2C. where i live it is very unsupportive of VBA2C, and im having a stressful time but that isn't stopping me from staying educated about my choices!

i had ricky 2-9-03, by emergency cesarean after being doped up on so much demoral my mom says she thought i was going to overdose! somehow in a foggy series of events, i ended up with a cesarean and didn't see my baby ricky until 4 hours later because i was passed out. ricky was 8.5, 21 inches long

i then got prego in 2004, due in july 2005, i had been conditioned to think once a cesarean always a cesarean and fell into that trap. i thought my body couldn't do a vaginal birth, i tought it would just be a ton more stress on everyone and was never told that a VBAC was an option. the doctor of coruse never even said anything to me about it. christian was born at 38 weeks at only 6.9, 17 inches!!
i started researching VBAC and homebirth. it's been a long 2 years!

on june 4th i got a BFP, a blood test said we were 2 months prego already! long awesome story there but irrelevant at this time, so i will skip that. so we decided against a homebirth, but are defintiely going for the VBA2C. despite that no doctor here will support it. and NO hospital is VBAC friendly - the odds are really against us!

we are however - staying very informed, educated, and hiring a doula. im also lookiing into having the ICAN leader of my area, that i have been keeping in touch with, might have anyone that could also come with us to the hospital to make sure in my weakest hours that i am still being supported and my rights are being respected.

so that is my situation in a nutshell - i am pretty much obsessed with researching VBACS, especially VBA2C. and again im so glad this board is here!!!

Hi Valerie! I am going to be your number one cheerleader! You can do this girl! I know you can!!!

I have thought about doing a home birth myself so many times but dh is against it and I am scared. I think once you have had an emergency situation during birth it makes you more nervous about things. I can totally understand all your fears but I still think you can do it! I know I didn't think that I could have a natural birth with Lyndsey and I did it!

Good luck and stick around!!!!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, Val. I hope you're able to get your VBAC.
