OK I have posted her before but its been a while. I am 23 weeks pregnant with my second child. My first ended up being a c-sec after 15 hours of labor and an hour and a half of pushing with no progress from the baby. My DD's head began to swell and my bladder swelled from the pushing and the decision was made to go for the vbac. They also told me the famous like that my pelvis is small.
This time around I discussed vbac with my drs office. There are several different drs in the practice. Some are supportive but others I feel are pushing for me to do the rcs. At my last appt on Jan 25 the dr actually asked me if I had made my decision yet on what I want to do. Well no I havent made my decision yet since I thought we discussed that we wanted to wait until I got a little closer to due date to make the decision. Then she went to my chart and mention that because I had fibroid with dd that might have partially been the cause of my c-sec and that it would greatly hurt my chances this time of a successful vbac if a fibroid is present again. We had no idea a fibroid was even present with dd until the c-sec and with my 3 u/s I have had so far there has been no mention of one this time.
With DD I went into labor on my own at 37 weeks so my thought is that I will go into labor this time on my own probably a little early as well. My office doesn't schedule c-sec until the Tuesday before your due date. My due date is June 6 so if I end up scheduling a c-sec it would be scheduled on June 1st.
I guess I am just looking for some thoughts on my situation. What would you do? How would you handle the "dr" pushing for a rcs. I want to make the decision on my own opposed to feeling pressured into something. I think the one dr is trying to scare me into the rcs. Personally I dont want the extra recovery time of a rcs with a 2.5 year old running around at home.
I feel that the circumstance of my first labor were a little unusual and that the statement that I have a small pelvic opening in just a random statement they use when they really dont know what caused the situation.
