I came to post last week but couldn't write it I didn't get my vbac, completely devastated! failed to progress again didn't get past two cm even after being on the drip for 5-6 hours having contractions 4 in 10 mins not even 10 secs between contractions I got to 9 hours in labour and I said I couldn't do it anymore my epidural failed 4 times it was horrible they have also said I can't try again so I'm still so sad about that! Just glad my baby boy come out safely xx good luck everyone xx

Aw Hun I'm so sorry you didn't get your vbac it's hard to deal with when others don't understand, I remember loads of people saying to me "baby's here safe that's all that matters" which of course is 100% true but we are allowed to feel that disappointment. I'm sorry it was so traumatic for you.

Thank you Hun!! I'm just waiting for life to take over now and be a bit more busy so I can stop thinking about it! While I was pregnant a natural birth was about the less recovery time but after it was too late I realised I craved the experience more then anything and that's what I'm now "mourning" the loss of

I really hope you guys get the birth you want and what's right for you xx

Thats great news hun, my baby isnt breech either now so I am also still hoping for a vbac! Just getting soooooo tired now though that I keep thinking, if only I chose ELCS I would only have about 17 days left!! But thats no reason for an ELCS really, I know I need to at least try for a vbac or else I wouldnt be happy with myself.

I am sooooo happy she is not breech anymore you must of been getting so nervous My one was head down on Wednesday but now I am scared she has turned breech again because I think I can feel kicks 'down below' again. Im hoping its little hands punching instead of kicks as she had hiccups and they felt low down also xx

Got my vbac consultant appointment on Monday to discuss options I guess. Not sure what expect but I'm hoping to find out more about how things work at that specific hospital.

Compiling a list of questions. Anyone got any they have asked/ wished they had asked?

Ask about continuous fetal monitoring and whether they will allow you to move about (I say "allow" because of course it's your choice but some hospitals are more encouraging of active births even with vbac than others are).

I asked about not being induced even if I go very over due, I think the risk is too high for me of uterine rupture so if I go over due or any reason they decide baby needs to be born ASAP I am allowed an ELCS. They will schedule it for 41+5 for me.

I was told by one MW that I would have to have an epidural, I double checked that with my consultant and she said no only if I want it but I will have to have a cannula in preparation in case I need another EMCS.

Ooh and ask when they will want you to go to L&D coz they've asked me to go in as soon as anything starts really so they can monitor me and baby.

You dont have to be indiced if you go over due, my consultant actually completely agreed with me when I said I didnt want to. Might have been more open to induction if I had a bigger gap between births but my consultant agreed instantly which makes me think it was a good decision. But I also know you can have it if you want to.

When I had my first consultant appointment he filled in a little tick sheet thing and one of the questions was along the lines of "birth plan if post term" and the options were induction or c section so he has ticked c section on mine and written next to it 40+12. They might have something like that for you too, I'm sure they will ask you though :-)
