Thanks... I'm just really dreading my appointment on Thursday (if I end up making it). She wants me to schedule a c-section for that afternoon if I haven't had the baby yet and I'm really not looking forward to that fight!

Put your foot down! Demand a BPP & a nst before you consent to a csection! Plenty of women go overdue! & if LO is doing okay, & placenta & bloodflow looks good..there's no reason to do it!

I had a successful VBAC Sunday Sept 23rd. I gave birth to our second little girl who was 19 1/2 inches and weighed 6lbs 8oz. I was schedules for a C-section the morning of the 24th so she came right in time. Labor pains started at 11:30pm Saturday night, my water broke at 6:30am Sunday morning the doc gave me 12 hours to dilate due to risk of infection. I went without an Epi until 7CM at 3:15 , which slowed me down a little but at least I got an hour or so sleep which was much needed at that point. At 6:15pm I was at 9, I started pushing at 6:50 and delivered a beautiful little girl at 8:33 PM. I avoided my C-section and got my libra baby. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I would of posted sooner but we have been so in awe of our little one. Thank you ladies for all your support and just listening. To everyone who is thinking about a VBAC I am so glad I did this! It has healed a spot in my soul and the recovery has been unbelievably easy compared to the section.

Well done salt, thats great.I'm gad you got your healing experience. I'm desperate for that.
rainbow, if all is ok, dont schedule the section till next week, I'm sure you'll only be a few more days and it they induce you you are heading for a section. Its your choice and if the microwave hasn't gone ping, the baby is not ready. Do the tests first and dont be bullied

Oh I'm not consenting. She'll have to drag me in there kicking and screaming LOL. I'm already doing NST's and BPP's twice a week, which was her compromise for letting me go over 40 weeks. I'm 40w4d now. I'm basically going to tell her that if they continue to be fine, I want to continue with the pregnancy (not easy when I'm so uncomfortable LOL). I won't go under the knife unless it's necessary.



Congrats Salt on your VBAC!! It sounds like it was a wonderful experience for you! And your little one coming the day before your scheduled c-section is incredibly cool! Good baby!! :)

I'm still here. Nothing yet. My OB scheduled a c-section for Thursday afternoon and will not go any further. Basically, my blood pressure is climbing with every visit, my little one turned posterior (whereas she was in the perfect position last Thursday), and I'm just exhausted and don't know how much longer I can go. If she's not here by Thursday, I'm probably just going to go in for the c-section in the afternoon.
