Re: New here - Intro & general VBAC question!

Yup, and knowing all that can explain why your DS went back up, you may have been in labor, but that darn pitocin and all of those interventions basically wedged him in and didn't allow him to get...

Re: New here - Intro & general VBAC question!

The reason I ask is because when water breaks and labor doesn't start, it is a good indication that baby was in a malposition. There are things you can do to help that before and during labor. It...

Hey mama, were you induced? Or did your water break without having labor start?

Re: De Facto Ban...

I delivered at a hospital with a defacto ban but there are actually quite a few doctors at the hospital itself that are willing to attend a VBAC.

Re: Doulas and VBAC

I had a doula with my vbac (DH probably liked having her there more than I, he was able to get a break now and again and I was never left alone) and I still feel that if I had one for my first son I...

Re: Adoptive mom with questions

Congrats on the match mama, and on one who so wants you involved is awesome! I think ICAN would be a great resource on supporting a VBAC mama.

Re: I have options!! Might x-post

Kellie, you are so very lucky to have such good choices. While I know what one I would chose, it is not my birth :) Good luck in deciding, I didn't even realize you had a plan to ttc anytime soon. I...

Re: A Few Questions ...

I will say this: because you don't have a "proven pelvis" your body is more likely to respond like a first time mom. Not a big deal though because there are first timers who go all over the spectrum,...

Sorry mama, I don't have time to read all of the replies but I saw a few things that stuck out in your story that I want to comment on:

so so so not true! First you had an induction which...

Re: Lydia Ann born on 9/24/10 via VBAC

Congrats on your VBAC!

I just want to point out one thing though, a 20 dose of PIT is the max dose so if they got you up there, that is the most you can have and you are having contraction on top...

Re: Are you on a time line for your VBAC?

I'm very positive I saved a first time mom from the chopping block today by educating her on the "real" risks involved with a spontaneous ROM and infection. Because she knew the truth, she waited to...

I just wanted to state that if I were in your position I would say that baby being away from me for that long after delivery isn't even an option. If the hospital isn't willing to budge on that, I...

Re: Waiting before going to the hospital?

Mama, if you'd like to read a story about waiting to go in, read Graeme's birth story (posted here in VBAC stories). I was in labor for 75 hours, I stayed home for 74 of them with DH, a doula, and a...

Re: Are you on a time line for your VBAC?

Want to know the very true answer to your question?

99% of OBs have that same timeline in their head, regardless of you being a first-time mom, a VBAC, or BTDT mom. Blame the Irish :P (I cannot...

First, congrats on that awesome weight loss! I'm stuck at 208lbs right now and it is pretty discouraging.

Second, I was the same weight at the end of both my pregnancies, the first resulted in a...

Also remember mama, you don't *have* to schedule a c-section. If you get into labor and baby is still not turned, then you can opt for it. By doing it that way you ensure that BABY is ready to be...

Re: Anyone have a c/s due to positioning?

How's this sound mama?

DS1 was a failed induction due to malposition and supposed "large baby". I believe he was posterior though I haven't confirmed it, and his head was tilted.

My DS2 was a...
