Taking a Break from the Articles

I hope that you have enjoyed some of the articles that I have posted. I am writing a post now about myself and my desire to have a VBAC this October.

I am now 28 weeks pregnant with our daughter. When I was 9 weeks pregnant I talked with the doctor who performed my C/S with my son. I told him upfront that my goal with this next child is to have a VBAC. He said we could attempt a VBAC BUT they will NOT induce me (so I CAN’T go overdue again) and I must have a small baby “just in case my pelvis isn’t big enough.” WHAT?? My doctor said I need to go into labor naturally and hopefully early and the baby has to be in the perfect position etc.! He also said that I have a deadline of 41 weeks. Once I hit 41 weeks and I haven’t gone into labor naturally than I must have a repeat c-section. UGH! Several people have told me to switch doctors, but I CAN’T! Mostly because of insurance and also because most other doctors (and hospitals) in our area won’t even allow VBACs.  I want desperately to have a VBAC so please pray for me! Obviously, if it’s a TRUE emergency I would definitely be fine with a C/S, but I don’t want another unnecessary one!
