what influenced your decision? Im still debating at 32 weeks, you see...as much as I would love to vbac...i have to work around my family. DS dad is only going to be keeping him part of my hospital stay, other than him I have to work around my family DD has a horrid s***m donor...and he will not be allowed at the hospital, and just as well I have to keep her birth as secretive as possible...to keep him away, for both our safety. My support person is my 17 year old sister, sounds odd...but she's been in many delivery rooms already. I just feel so much pressure from everyone to schedule a c section, because Im a single parent & rely on others for support with DS.

its harder to do that i was thinking about doing the same thing.. i had my VBAC and i was out in 24 hours after having him and i was walking 30 mins after having him no pain well just a little from down there but nothing like a c sec. see if they have a help line thing in iowa we have a parent time out if you sign up for it people that are approved by the state will watch your child.. i had my mom watch my oldest but they have this idk if its in all states tho.
