Grrrr!!!! Almost made it to 33 weeks with not one single person giving me grief over VBAC. Until last night when my [swear word] father told me I just needed to schedule it. The baby is too big. (Did I mention I'm ONLY 33 weeks?)All I could muster was saying, NOPE, NOPE, over and over again. And then I said something about people push out bigger babies than DD was (she was 9.11). My dear mother is supposed to head him off because I refuse to hear that crap for 7 more weeks. I'm going to keep a naysayer list and punish them for it.

My dad couldnt understand why i didnt just want to have another csection, when he was also the one who didnt understand why i was having a csection in the first place with DD.
Sometimes you just cant please men, haha.

I would just let it roll off your back. People are always going to have their opinions, and you just do what is right for you. People are so informed about it, that it just blows my mind!!

I agree, all you can do is ignore them. I've had a few people wonder why I don't just have a c-section, including the good old "c-sections are so easy and quick and convenient!" Pff. Whatever folks. I just tell them my doctor thinks it's a good idea, and that usually shuts them up pretty quickly.

Sounds like your dad is being a typical man and doesn't know anything about how women birth babies! It's totally possible to birth a bigger baby then 9 lbs 11oz and you deserve to have support.

Nobody in our family has said anything to me yet about my birth plans, but when they do and I tell them i'm not planning a cesarean...I'm sure they'll have that same reaction!

I have never understood why other people think that they can tell you what you should do/what they want regarding delivery or pregnancy in general. You do what is best for you and your baby!! Let those naysayers fuel that fire!!

I know just how you feel. Don't let him bother you. With my VBA2C attempt my aunt who works for an OB constantly posted on my wall stats against VBAC and telling me I was making a big mistake. I hope you have an amazing VBAC and you can rub his nose in it
