In my case it was strange. it dropped for three minutes, then went back up.
Had been scheduled for a 12:30PM induction and because her heartbeat
went back up and I had eaten, I didn't have the c-section until 5:30PM.

Really weighing my options here. It's nice to know a repeat C-section isn't nessisarly my only option.

Going to find out if Blue Cross will pay for one. Sounds so awesome from what I have heard. So much more involved in the birth than an OB I have heard.

He said my insurance wouldn't give him anything for it, but that he didn't mind doing it while already in there.
So I'm not selfish if I do opt for the repeat CS am I?

I don't think so. I think even if you are the slightest bit fearful for a vbac go for the csection. The tube tying is also a good incentive and plus you are comfy with your doc and that is important.

I really wanted a VBAC but had another c-section. Some OB's will allow for a VBAC and some won't.

Thank you for the support. I need to really do some soul searching before I decide.

Oh and also remember that if you are fearing vbac the longer you go between pregnancies the better...2 yrs is a good distance for healing so if you decide to go that route the odds are in your favor. No prob!

my girls will be two years and 6 months a part, so that's just about perfect for good odds. :)
