I've decided.

VBAC.

Freakin' out.


(If you don't know what that is, just google it.)



(And you know, the one thing I feel like I missed out on with my previous birthing experience, was that I didn't experience my *water breaking* somewhere random and then pack up and go to the hospital all excited.)

Good luck!! They had to break my water after I was a 10 both times...but with Elizabeth at least I went into labor badly enough that I decided we could finally go to the hospital...then we had to rush to the hospital at 5:30am! John got to run a stoplight in front of the hospital :)

My sister did this on her second as well and loved the healing afterwards. She lost the weight faster and wasn't as sore as she was with her c-section. Good Luck!

I can't seem to remember why Kaius was C. You'll have to refresh my memory. My sister in law tried VBAC with her 2nd and couldn't... but it was because her hips just don't move out so there is no way to get a baby's head out. She liked that she at least tried again. I think you'll do fine! AND then... this last 4th pregnancy of hers... her water broke in her bed in the middle of the night instead of going in on her scheduled c section day! haha So funny, you just never know!

Good luck! I hope everything goes ok. I was just reading about all that stuff in a book I got. :)

Good for you! My mom's 3rd was C-section but she had 3 more vaginally. Obviously she preferred her natural births!

Whoa, I am surprised. I just think your body wasn't ready yet and they made you push too early... I'm sure you can do it. And I still have never gone into labor or had my water break on it's own. I'm kind of glad for that though.
