well i started having horrivle back labor [we didnt do know then.] at about 2:30 am, monday morning, me being only 34 weeks we got worried, but i had a NST scheduled for that morning anyways, so we just waited it out, i showered, it subsided a bit, at 8 am, my SO took me to the hospital for my NST, they asked if they could re schedule for tomorrow since they had 2 births & were backed up. i just wanted to to go home & sleep so we said sure, i didnt realize it then, but i could barely walk without cringing with pain. it was soo intense on my tail bone area. i was leaking or anything. we ended up going back the hospital at about 10am, insisting they do a NST, because the pain was getting worse, they kept telling me that it was just the baby pushing on me, seperating my back a bit, & because i was bigger than normal it hurt more. so after pretty much crying the whole NST, my dr said i was fine. we went home, my SO had to go get the car as i took baby steps in pain to the car. we got home, all i could do was stand & Sway back & forth, it wasnt until i sat down in the living room did i feel the gush, i go up & rushed into the bathroom, i was doing keegles & still leaking, i think it was like 1:30p, my SO called my grandma who came over, she then called my mom & i had another gush, we told her were going to the hospital. so we pulled up to the hospital & i was waiting for the wheel chair, in more pain now, when a big gush came, the nurse [who was austrailain & made me laugh] asked me all these questions & stuff so they get me in a gown, im still leaking a bit, so i lay on one of the beds in the NST room, & another gush, they still dont believe that its my water, haventchecked me down there or hooked the baby up to anything yet, im crying in pain & the nurse is next to me talking with another patient. meanwhile my grandma & SO are in the waiting room calling mine & his family. my mom rushes to the hospital from work, finally the nurse does the water swab & says that it was def my water. she says, okay lets get to the l&D room, im freaking out, so she has my follow her to the room, me SO & MOM follow as well. she lays me down & says okay, lets check you, i was at 9CM & 100%effaced. it was am ad rush from then on, more nurses came in, starting frantically shoving IVs & stuff on me. i finally said i had to push, they all told me i couldnt cause i wasnt at 10 yet, but i couldnt help it, at this point things got all scrambled i begged for something for the pain, i couldnt get an epi ovbisouly, so they gave me demoral, ew, it was gross it didnt stop the pain only made me outta it. the pain was so bad i was holding onto the side of the bed & making it go up & down. finally i remember the dr comming in saying okay shes right there, youre still only at 9cm & 100% effaced, its been 3.5 hours, do you want an emergnancy c-section. i said YES! so they wheeled me into the OR, had me stand up, i guess i had gotten a cathider put in while in the L &D room. they had me sit on the edge of the table, my body was still pushing, they could pretty much feel the top of of her easily still in me. once i got that epi i was fine. i dont remember anything after that really, except shaking so badly they had to strap me down & gimme O2, the demeroal made it horrible. i wish i could remmeber. i didnt get to meet chloe until 4 hours later after i came off everything. she had a cone head for a c-section baby! it was horrible. yours?

I think it is a great idea. I think a lot of women are scared to have a c-section. And I have come across a lot of people that have judged me for not wanting a vbac and for being overall ok with my section. I can definately provide insight to my experiance and what happend, but the jist of it all was that my son turned breech at 39 weeks after being head down from 30 weeks on. I had a scheduled, non emercency c-section and am very happy with that. Labor isn't my thing - or so I don't think so :) - and I don't mind at all having repeats.

it looks good Mama! I think this will turn out to be a great place for ladies to come and learn about c-sections and hear stories. I hope it makes things easier or at least calms some momma's nerves about going in for a c-section!

I will share my story at some point...right now it's too much to write and I am way tooo uncomfortable to begin :cry:

Maybe some vbac info for those who want to and are able. This is from the mayo clinic



You've already had a baby by Caesarean section (C-section). Your doctor says you have a choice with your next baby. You can try a vaginal delivery or schedule a repeat C-section.
Years ago, a C-section ended any hope of future vaginal deliveries. But today, thanks largely to changes in surgical technique, vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC) is possible in many cases. In fact, 60 percent to 80 percent of women who try VBAC have a successful vaginal delivery.
VBAC isn't right for everyone, though. Sometimes a pregnancy complication prevents the possibility of a successful VBAC. Many local hospitals don't offer VBAC because they don't have the staff or resources to handle emergency C-sections.



Delivery options
After a C-section, many women are candidates for VBAC. Your doctor will review your medical history to help you decide whether VBAC or repeat C-section is appropriate for you and your baby. Here are factors your doctor will consider.



What type of uterine incision was used for the prior C-section?
Scars left from certain types of incisions have an increased risk of tearing during labor and delivery
