Re : VBAC vs. C-section

<t>This was my first time in labor. I had been having contractions for several days. My water broke and contractions started coming more often. I headed to the hospital. The baby was born about 22 hours after my water broke. I didn't have any pain medication, as I had read several places that it can...

Re : VBAC vs. C-section

<t>From my own personal experience I would do as much research on your own before making a decision. Then find a doctor that will work with you and your decision. As mentioned earlier a lot of doctors will recommend you to have another c-section simply because of a 1-3% chance of a rupture. I felt t...

Re : VBAC vs. C-section

<t>I have had 2 c-sections and just had a VBAC. I definately preferred the VBAC to the c-sections. Both my c-sections were emergencies. My doctors didn't want me to even try a VBAC because I hadn't had a vaginal birth in the past. I decided that the risk of a VBAC was not as bad as what I would go t...

Re : Another Update (UPDATED)

<t>Thank you everyone!!!<br/> <br/> I spent a little over 6 hours at the hospital today. I do feel a little better already. I'm not nearly as tired and my skin isn't as pale either. My hand stills hurts from the IV though. They had a TV to watch as well as provided juice and lunch for me. <br/> <br/...

Another Update (UPDATED)

<t>Today my doctor said she had let all the other doctors know of my decision to try for a VBAC. While they would prefer that I have a c-section they will go along with what I want as long as there aren't any problems. One thing she brought up was that they would all be more comfortable if I were to...

Re : Anyone have a successful vbac?

<t>I'm trying for a VBAC after 2 c-sections. My doctor said that she will give me until a week after my due date to have the baby on my own provided nothing goes wrong in the meantime. She did warn that an induction really wasn't an option unless I made so much progress on my own and even then only ...

Re : 38 Week Checkup

<t>Thank you everyone!!<br/> <br/> Heather, The biggest difference this time around was that I didn't work and I got a lot more sleep and rest then I did previously. I didn't take any medications at all. I also saw my doctor more often and she kept a close watch on protein levels through weekly 24 u...

Re : From Pumping to Formula

<t>With my oldest I had to use soy formula, it was the only think that didn't make him sick. Even breastmilk made him sick. I think he inherited the milk protein intolerence that I had also had as a baby. With my second one I pumped and he breastfed until he was about 7 months. I used the formula fo...
