Hi ladies please can I join I feel like I would really like to try for a vbac but just not sure I had quite a good ecs my water broke at 2 while I was out to lunch my aunties all came back to my house I finally went in to hospital at nine thirty as had not felt baby move they then did mess about until doing an ecs as her heart beat kept dropping she was born at 12.45 and I went home after one night I recovered really well with my cs apart from my scar got two infections. I think it was ok as I had not been in labour for hours and then had to have a cs so I was not to tired. But they say as they could not find my cervic they don't know how far I got so don't know if I will dilate next time.
Sorry for long post I just can't decide I am a big lady bmi 39 but weigh the same as I did last time at this stage x
Hey I'm good thanks, I saw my midwife today, I was seeing a consultant who sent me back to midwife care and the midwife wants me under consultant care as I've got several high risk factors this pregnancy!
I'm seeing the birth choices team in a month for an hour long appointment to discuss it all. I hope they support my decision.
Also I had a 16 week scan today and I'm having my first baby girl! (Well she's 70% sure lol).
Congratulations on your little girl when.is your birth choices appointment? I have a consultant appointment at 28 weeks where I get a scan to check where the placenta is and discuss more indepth about my birth plan xx
Imogen sorry I didn't see your post, how are you feeling about your decision now?
Purplerat congrats on your little girl!!
Mysterious eye was your placenta low?
I've got my MW appt next week and haven't seen one since 16 weeks!!! I'm amazed at how relaxed they have been about my pregnancy considering my high risk factors (high BMI, suspected pre-e last time and raised BP and previous C section only a year ago). Has anyone else felt like they've hardly seen anyone?
Well at my 20 week scan my placenta wasn’t low, it was just front lying which is blocking the kicks but other than that the sonographer said that wasn’t a problem for VBAC. We shall see next week whether that has changed though, Bella was breech again… but I am not going to worry about that too much right now.
I did feel like that, I think if I didn’t have a scan next week to check bella’s head (which was quite small at 20 week scan so they wanted to do re-scan at 24 weeks) then I would feel like its ages… After all it is 8 weeks without an appointment xxx
Hi can I join you? I'm not due until nov but would love a vbac. My section was due to breech so I've never been in labour. I was told there was no reason for my baby being breech so hopeful this time they won't be. The concern I have is ill be on consultant led since I've had a section and midwife said that means I'll probay get monitored constantly. Does that mean a water birth is out of the question?
Hey Apple, Anyone can join in here Mine was the same reason my daughter was breech but I did go into spontaneous labour before my planned C-section @ 39 weeks. I am consultant led, but I am asking for intermittent monitoring instead of being strapped up to a monitoring machine for the whole labour. I haven’t spoken fully with my consultant about water birth but will at my 28 week appointment he said its something we can discuss xx
