yep :) I think you will find one that will be more supportive! You can call and ask to do a consult before choosing one if you like.

It's so nice to know there are such supportive doctors out there!! This one practices fairly close to me. I told my midwife I want to change her to my transfer option, LOL! :)

Hi! I'm Rachael and my son was born via c section for really no reason at all ( as to what I'm swear of) 1st time mom, I trusted my OB. I mean hell I was seeing him for so long just to get pregnant. I have zero regrets. But now I'm pregnant again and going on post and I assumed I'd just have another csection, but my OB brought up vbac. And that I should go to a class on it. She's pushing vbac and not csection. Alright I'm down. This is most likely my last child and why shouldn't I get to feel what labor and birth feels like.



Ill read the op here soon.




But I didn't get the full 411 on how it'd go. I have high BP not pregnant. Other health issues that may or may not play a role in pregnancy still doing tests. She did say she would not let me go 40 weeks. I was reading here and there about how a small amount of pit was used and women went on to have vbacs. Anyone use pit to labor?



I see her again Monday and ill ask more questions.

With a VBAC, any form of induction doubles your chance of uterine rupture... and pitocin definitely would not help with your high blood pressure!! Pitocin also increases your risk of uterine rupture and chances of a repeat c-section. Why won't she let you go full term? .. And why did you end up having a c-section the 1st time?

Hey ladies,



Quick update on what is going on:
I will be 38 weeks after midnight. Today I had an ultrasound and an OB appointment. The baby is measuring 7lbs 4 ozs and the doctor was going on about how is already the size of second born and he is probably going to be big :roll: then she felt of my belly and said but he doesnt feel big and that we just cant know for sure (all of this was said with attitude)... I dont get what her problem is since he is in the 50th percentile....
Then she asks me, is this going to be your last.. and I said I really dont know since I am only 24 and my husband is 27... she goes well if u knew this was going to be your last then i would recommend a c-section and just tie your tubes while you are open.... i am not sure why she thought I would ever consider getting my tubes tied
Then she tried to scare me about having a VBAC, and going on about how im doing this at my own risk and was giving really bad attitude because I insisted on a VBAC... after she went on and on about the risks of a VBAC she finally checks me and says I am 2 cm..... she would not do a membrane sweep until I was closer to 39 weeks... but when i was pregnant with my 2nd she was trying to sweep my membranes at 37 weeks.....:roll:
I am beyond pissed right now... I lost all my trust in her... its weird how a month ago she was saying i would prefer you to have a VBAC blablabla and now this

That's a lot of bull! That's how my Dr. was with my 1st pregnancy!! She was all for my birth plan, but once labor started it all seemed to go out the window... And she was trying to push me to induce before my due date even hit, when I already said I didn't want to be induced! Ultrasounds are so inaccurate in the 3rd trimester anyway.. I heard from a doctor's interview, that they can be up to 2lbs off!.. Plus, 7lbs 4oz is average size! :roll: .. And that's crazy she's suggesting you get your tubes tied when you're that young! Is this the same doctor you had with your 1st VBAC? She sounds like she's trying to take the easy way out... :?

yes she is the same doctor! this is why I am so confused.. the first time she was letting me go to almost 42 weeks and this time she is not... last time she said she would break my water the night before my c-section to see if i would go into labor on my own and now she wont.... like all her rules have changed

Some doctors are pressured by insurance companies.. with changing their practices!! I would insist!! They can't do a c-section without your consent ;)
