Help with vbac or csect. Decision in morning!
I am meeting with my consultant in the morning. Last time I saw him, at 30 weeks, he asked how I wanted to have the baby. I had given it no thought as was taking one day at a time due to the fact my LO had to be delivered prematurely.
Hopefully things are going a little smoother this time and he will want to know tomorrow what I want to do.
I have since done loads of research, given it loads of thought and still don't blooming know!
I had an emergency c sect before, they used forceps to help get her out and my tummy was incredibly painful for a long time. I really want to avoid another emergency c sect and know i will only be given a trial labour so may still end up with one.
Can anyone tell me their experiences of vbac or csect after an emergency csect please?
I had an emergency c section with my daughter and tried for a vbac with my son, but I still ended up having a c section due to poor progress, my second c section went smoother than my first, but I found it more painful afterwards and it took longer for me to heal. x
I had 3 EMCS, and everytime the recovery differed so much! My 2nd one was the easiest, least painful with the shortest recovery. My last had the longest recovery, but I had an infection in the cut itself which I think played a roll. The 1st was the most painful afterwards. All 3 was done in the same hospital, by the same gynae, so I'm still puzzled as to why c-sections in the same woman can differ so much!
So I guess I can just hope and pray for a quick recovery this time. Good luck with your decision. I also wanted to try VBAC after my first c-section, but baby's placenta failed and she was in distress at 37 weeks. They had to take her out, no time to try and have a vaginal birth.
