Hey, I had that poster in my room when I was a pre-teen/teen. It was laminated.

I am stressed. I want so badly for my VBAC to happen but I feel like I have the world against me, no one except for my husband is supportive of me doing a TOLAC, and my "supportive" OB keeps finding nice ways to put doubt in my mind. I just wish I could fast forward to January and just know if I will be able to do it or not...

So normal Kathryn!
We just had a successful all natural (and speedy) VBAC in October -- but my OB was absolutely not supportive! I had a homebirth midwife as doula to help out. But I was SO full of doubt because my daughter would not budge out of the posterior position, and that's what gave us so much trouble the first time. You just never know! But the end of pregnancy is hard for all mamas... even the ones without baggage of a prior c-section/hoping for a VBAC!

Jill, THANK YOU!!!

Also, I think next week's open thread should be hosted by the special brand of crazy only a mother can bring (the mother of a grown child)

Oh crap, I think Twitter is messed up b/c it says you don't follow. But I notice some other people are having issues, so I will chalk it up to that and assume that my mother has not put some kind of curse on my entire life

Lovely baby! Can't wait to meet my own in May. I've complained about my infertility on the Monday thread enough times that I wanted to announce that we're finally expecting- naturally, even though we were told it would never happen without IVF and the baby is due in May. Planning a joyful birth, at home :) So happy!

Anyone have info on Uterine Anomalies? Specifically Uterine Didelphus and VBA2C. I DO NOT want another unnecesarean but am up against ALOT of opposition. I need info to try and back myself up. Please Help.

Just wanted to de-lurk for today. Still following and enjoying, still having fun with my gorgeous (now 19 month old) baby girl. Hope all is well with everyone!

I thought I'd de-lurk today too!

Congrats, Vanessa! My little girl was born in May (2006). It's a great time of year for a new baby! <3

And I'll take your spot whining about infertility! My hormones are absolutely nuts! Every month I go through a 2-week pregnancy, post-ovulation...complete with sore boobs, nausea, ovary pain...everything...and then end it with a spectacular period. It's just enough of a mind-F&^$ that just when I start to think I'm pg and contemplate getting a test, I start bleeding and then I'm bummed. *sigh*

I had a VBAC last month and I am still in shock. My first son's labor was a near-48 hr-long disaster. After the (necessary) c/s, the OB and my midwife both told me I'd never give birth vaginally. They were wrong, obviously! I had a completely normal, 16-hr labor and pushed out a baby 3 lbs bigger than my first. My body is NOT defective!!
