Hi ladies, I'm Jaime and I'm due with my 4th 10-27-10. I will be having my 3rd c-section with this one. My first birth was a nice easy vaginal delivery but my second was a very emergent c.s - rushed over from the office with baby's HR in the 50's Very unpleasant. I elected to have a repeat with my third and since I've had 2, I'll be scheduling another c/s. My issue is my coworkers. I am a labor and delivery RN, and really, we are very pro-VBAC...but it wasn't for me. I felt I didnt need to prove anything, and I just wanted a safe delivery for my baby. And there's that "curse of the nurse". I just didn't want to take that chance and labor. I got lots of irritating remarks with my second c-section that I ignored. Well, I thought there wouldn't be any issue this time with smart remarks, but it's started already. The few people that know say I should push for a VBAC, or say things like "it will be hard to recover from surgery with 4 kids", etc. They are well meaning, but it isn't their decision. I am educated, and I work in L&D for God's sakes! I know VBAC's generally are safe, but I've also seen bad outcomes. I wish they'd just keep their mouths shut! Sorry for the rant, I know you ladies understand.

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

I can imagine that it must be REALLY hard for someone in your position!!! I am sorry everyone is making their opinions known - especially when the only opinion that really matters, is that of you - and your ob.
