Hi ladies

I too had a c section after being in " early labour" with agonising contractions at 5/10 mins apart for four days, was then induced after I was finally admited to hospital and then on the 2nd day in hosp due to the shape of my pelvis & lo being back to back was told I had to have a section..... just wish that had happened a few days earlier!

I recovered well and would only want a secion again next time as I couldnt cope with being at home for 4 days, litterlly couldnt eat and had about 3 hours sleep, so by the time i was in hospital it was easy in comparison!

My question is, can we ask for a section next time in the uk? I thought you had to trial a natural labour....

I guess its different depending why you had a section, anyone have any experince of it 2nd time?

My midwife said you are allowed a "trial" labour for 6 hours, but problem with me was they dont class you as being in labour until you are 5cm, and it took my body 5 days to get to that and then didnt change until I was induced.... cant face going through that again and I really want to start planning number 2!!!

Hiya Claire85, sounds like you had a pretty rough time too. I was the same in that the 3 days I was at home having agonising contractions I didn't get a wink of sleep or eat anything. But by the time they got me into hospital I was in too much pain to think of eating then once I had my epidural and my drip I wasn't allowed anything to eat, only water!

I remember I kept begging for a c section and they kept saying no. I even asked on the Wednesday, I just had a feeling, somehow I knew I wasn't going to progress anymore. I was quite smug in away once they said I needed a c section, I was all like 'see, told you I'd need one'!

I'm not sure about automatically being allowed a c section second time around. I know they 'like' you to try for a vbac but from what I remember my midwife saying they won't make me go for a natural birth. I'm really not sure though. I'd be gutted if they try to force me to go through all that again. I really can't see my body doing it right next time. It's the first question I'll be asking when I fall pregnant again.

When do you plan on ttc your second and how old is your lo?

Sounds like our labour was pretty similar Im going to beg for a section, or just go to hosp on day 1 and not phone every day and be talked out of going in - even on day 4 it was only because i couldnt feel baby move they told me to go in!

lo is 10 weeks old, and we have agreed to start ttc number 2 from Dec this year so a bit early for me to worry, but its hard not to! what about you?

May/June might be around right for me, we've got our condo for sale and TTC when it sells, although I haven't been taking my pill lol...

I think I'd do the same thing. If I'm not automatically allowed a c section again then I'll just turn up at hospital with my bags as soon as I feel any twinges and I'll refuse to go home! We were up and down to the hospital like yoyos during the days before they finally decided I needed to be induced.

Well my lo is 7 months old and we'll start ttc when she's 10 months so that will be May 1st! I can't wait. I fell pregnant first try with Summer so if it happens again then there would be 19/20 months between them.

Roll on May!

I had a C-Section due to LO being breech. I'm hoping for a VBAC next time.
