I'm 25days aways from my due date I'm trying for a vbac but since I never found a ob vbac friendly I am planning to just show up at the hospital and having whatever doctor there deliver my baby hopefully as a vbac but I was wondering if I start having contractions I dont want to go to the hospital right away I wanna walk around my neighborhood and use the birthing ball and try and stay home as long as I can so that they dont try and get me to do a c section but how long so I stay home? I'm not sure what would be safer what do you ladies recommend? And what if my water breaks first how long so I stay home then? I'm also getting so much pain where my c section scar is at I feel the baby move there alot and I get this pain in my pelvic bone area what do you think it is should I be concern or is that normal?

If you are having pain at your incision site, I wouldn't recommend intentionally holding off with the hospital in hopes of a vaginal birth. Doctors want to make sure that you are a good candidate for a vbac before they let you try for one. Thereare risks that come with it, like separation of your previous incision or even uterine rupture. And if you are hurting already... I just wouldn't risk it.

I don't have any advice, but noticed you're in Palmdale... Where are you giving birth? I'm at Edwards AFB lol
