I Have Not Had A Vbac But Do Need Advice!I am 19 years old and am due August 27th, 2013. I had a C-Section in 2011 when my daughter was born in July. About 2 weeks before my due date my daughter flipped and was breech and my Dr. did not really give me an option she basically told me I had to have a C-section. Honestly I wasn't too nervous or upset about having a C-section. The thought of a vaginal delivery freaked me out and I was so done being pregnant. I had numerous u.t.i's, 2 kidney stones, pyelonephritis, anxiety and so many other problems during my pregnancy. I also had a threatened miscarriage where I just started bleeding like crazy out of nowhere. I thought I would never survive it all.
The C-section went well but I really did not enjoy not seeing my daughter or be being able to hold her on my chest when she was born. I feel like it really ruined our initial bonding. I also hated being doped up in the hospital and feeling like I was high off of Percocet. The recovery was horrible too it felt like it took me about 2 months to stand up straight without feeling like my insides would fall out.
I am very nervous about having a vbac and my ob/gyn basically gave me the option to choose a repeat C-section or a Vbac and I have about 7 months to make a decision.
ANY advice would be helpful!!!!!!!!
