I got my vbac!! Ronin Avery was born this morning at 7:04 am! 8 lbs 11 oz and 21 inches. I was in active back labor for 31 hours, little guy was sunny side up. I made it 24 hours before I begged for an epidural, it was after my water broke, I was almost 9 cm and it became unbearable for me. So, it wasn't the natural birth that I hoped for but I feel great about how things went. It was an amazing expierence and I still can't believe I did it, I have birth vaginally! My body was able to do it!! We should be going home tomorrow, I'll add the birth story and some pics at that time.

Here's a few pics:

congrats!!!! I had back labor with my little guy the pain from it is awful. I managed to get through it with just the iv med. After only a few hrs I begged for the epi but then delivered as they came in to start the epi. So no epi for me lol. You deserve an award for making it 31 hrs with back labor before getting epi. You did great.

Thanks everyone! I'm so happy I got by vbac. The recovery has so far been a lot easier for me than the c section. We are going home in a few hours and I will try to write the birth story but it was a long labor and has become somewhat of a blur. Lol
