For me, I had already had several vaginal births, so I knew the recovery was much easier than a c/s.  With my vbac, I was up moving around right away, driving two days later lol.  Taking care of my newborn and other children was much easier, too.  I felt like I had control over my children.  With my second c/s, my children were the ones taking care of the baby and me. 

What was your main reason was for wanting a vbac?

I didn't want to see if I'd have flashbacks -- the c-section was that bad and  a concatenation of such unlikely circumstances that I had no reason to think I could not birth vaginally.
