    Thanks you guys! I am still feeling great...no contractions or anything. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he hasn't dropped yet. I went to my prenatal yoga class yesterday and we did a lot of different squatting moves so hopefully that gets him moving down. Besides that I am just walking on a daily basis. I will keep you guys updated . Mary

    I guess I should tell you guys more about myself. So I am 28 y.o. SAHM to 2.5 y.o DS. My DH is also 28 and is a surgical resident (kind of funny how we will be doing a natural birth). Before I had my son I was a labor and delivery nurse (even funnier) and yes I was all into medical intervention and getting the babies out ASAP until I had my ds. My ds was taken via c-section at 36 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. I really should have been induced to try for vaginal delivery but being a first time mommy and "trusting" my doctor I went with the c-section b/c the doc told my dh and I that the induction would never work. I had a horrible recovery from my c/s including infection and being allergic to the sutures. My incision was still draining after 8 weeks. My ds also suffered from respiratory problems after birth, was colicy, and had pretty severe reflux. I due blame the fact that he was taken at 36 weeks via c/s for alot of his problems. After my experience I knew that I wanted a VBAC and wanted a natural childbirth. I started informing myself, hired a doula, doing prenatal yoga, and getting lots of info. from this board also . My dh is very supportive of my wants and desires and thankfully has not fought me on any part of my journey. My whole family is rooting for me since I will be the first person since my grandmother to deliver vaginally. My mother had 3 c/s (first b/c of pre-eclampsia and never allowed her to try vaginally after that), and my sister 3 c/s (same reason as my mom). I am so excited to finally be able to feel a contraction (which I never did with my ds) and feel like a woman experiencing labor. I think this has become a book...lol. Well, that is my story and I will definitely keep you guys updated as my due date is approaching and I still haven't felt any type of contraction or braxton hicks (hopefully soon). Mary

    That is so nice that you have support in your family. It must be giving you strength, to fight for your VBAC.

    Congrats Mary! I think it's fantastic that you are planning a VBAC despite the careers you and your husband have/had. That's great that you educated yourself and have made positive steps toward experiencing the birth you want.
