I think let something slip by...
 
Ok I am going for a vba3c, and I went to my Ob yesterday, I have been sitting here just thinking about something.
At the end of the appointment, she had this odd kind of worried look on her face. She asked me if I had any more questions. (I haven't told her about the hb m/w yet. I did tell me GP he thought it was a great idea) So I told her that I am Vbacing and she got all upset, telling me that they wouldn't be able to use the pitocin. Like I wanted that crap anyway that's how I got in this position in the first place!. So I told her that I didn't want any drugs at all no pit no epi NOTHING! She wants to make sure that I know the risks of vbac, I said yes I do could you tell me the risks for a ercs??? She looked rather dumb founded that somebody asked her that LOL! Before she could answer I started spitting out all of the risks to me and to my baby.
So then she says that we will see how the baby is positioned and if I am progressing at around 37 weeks. Now forgive me if I am wrong but, I don't think that not dilating or having a breech baby at 37 weeks means a whole lot? Happy that I got some reaction besides just a no, I never really thought about it until I was on the long drive home with a broken radio and quite sleeping kids in the back.
I just got lip service! I have heard this so many times from other VBAC hopeful moms. Promised a VBAC and at the end when so late they can't find another doc to take their case and denied at the last minute.
Well I have news for her I already have plans and options, and even if she tries it with me I am not delivering in a hospital!:lol: I will on the other hand continue to see her for the next few months because of previous cervical issues. I won't be the one caught unaware though!

I love how you asked her about the risks of an ERCS. I bet she hadn't heard that before!!! Way to go. i think its so awesome you are informed and aren't willing to take lip service from anyone. Way to go!

I hear you, I mean I have never failed to dilate a bit around that time. But I will let this LO come in his own time. I was a month late and transverse. My mom's Doc turned me and I was born vaginally and healthy. If it ain't broke don't fix it!
