Those of you wanting to have more children - will you attempt a VBAC next time?

I'm having my tubes tied after Emersyn is born, so it's a moot point for me, really... But if I did happen to have another, I'm 99.999999% certain I'd have another c/s

funny when I'm not pregnant I am all "yes I would definitely try a VBAC" then when I get pregnant I'm all "OMG no way I'm too scared to try a VBAC"

ATM I am not pregnant so I really want to try a VBA2C but the second I'm expecting #3 I expect to be asking for a c/s. My anxiety is just too strong to attempt a VBA2C.

If I have another its an automatic c-sec for me. They had to make an extra cut (so they basically made a T inside - ouside is just the normal scar), so it puts me at too high of a risk for a VBAC. On the up side after the back labour I had, I'm really ok skipping that part!

Haha do you have to ask? lol

I labored (mostly naturally) and I pushed for several hours, yet I would still try for vaginal because while it may be more painful during delivery, I can't imagine it hurting as long as the c/s recovery was (unless you get a severe tear).
