Hello everyone, I have a few questions.
I love dispensing advice.
I would certainly like to cheer you down the VBac path! I had c/s with first and successful VBac with #2. SIGNIFICANTLY easier recovery with the VBAC for me personally. Also, I just found something deeply rewarding about trying for the vaginal birth, and while I may have felt differently is I had not been successful, I think I would still be glad that I tried.
You will likely be monitored for signs of rupture, but honestly those risks are lower percentage-wise than the risks associated with surgery! Also, the fact that you had a c/s because baby was breech makes me think that your body hasn't given you any indication that it can't/won't labor and deliver on it's own---so you can DEFINITELY do this.
I know it's all a lot to think about, but come to a decision that you can live with. And congrats on the new baby-to-be either way!
Thank you so much for responding, I meant to add in there that I am pretty overweight, actually considered obese.
