VBAC and GD

With my 1st child, I was induced 2 days before my due date b/c I had GD and the dr. had concerns about letting me go past 40 weeks.

I dont have any experience with a VBAC after a C-section with GD, but I had a similar situation. I had GD with my 2 year old child and ended up being induced 5 days early because of the same reasons you were, and ended up with a c-section because she was face up.


I am hoping to have a VBAC next time, though I am not currently pregnant I will be

ouch. It is a hard choice. Sorry to say that I have no advice since I am in the same situation. My first baby was big, and induction did not go well. I think I had GD but not diagnosed. This time I am diagnosed with GD and the baby is due in two weeks. I am feeling very positive about the chance for a VBAC, but its scary!


I am actually feeling ready for delivery. I have major cramps, and the baby has dropped (my first did not). So I am very positive I will be able to have this one naturally, but my DH is a bit concerned and I will have the fight of my life on the 19th if this baby has not come out!!!


Good luck on your situation. What ever choice you make it will be the right one for you. And think of the beautiful baby you will have at the end.


fingers crossed it all goes well.

I have an acquaintance IRL who just had her 2nd VBAC, this time with GD. No complications. If I had her permission, I'd post her story--I'll ask her next time if I can.
