it went better than I'd hoped, though I do think some lying went on, lol. (ok lying may be too strong a word)
Now to explain:
My hopsital has a policy of no VBA2C, which I would be. Today, instead of seeing the NP, I apparently saw the hospital midwife (which I didn't even know we had). When she asked of my plans I told her and she was fine with that. Thinking it was weird I was like, it'll be a VBAC.
NP: "oh, was your second a c-sec and your first a vaginal?"
M: "No, they were both c-sec"
NP: looking confused, "So your second was your first VBAC? You've had one before?"
Starting to think she was a bit slow, esp after she just informed me that she carefully read my file for my history
M: "No, DS was failure to discend. He was a bit crooked. DD had a poly-cycstic kidney which distended her stomach which made the docs uncomfortable enough to not want me to VBAC"
i explained a bit more about how labor did not go well with DS, nor did the healing, but that DD's healing was fine.
NP: "Well, you'll find that we are very pro VBAC here. Now I don't know the stats about VBA2C . . . "
M: "I do" *foot in mouth* "I've done a lot of research on it" *thanks to the NCB board*
NP: "ok then, educate me"
Thinking this was a trap I lost all the knowledge in my head, but once I got rolling she looked impressed by the research and thought that i'd put into the subject.
She then examined me and commented on how well my incision looked, like it was hardly there.
Anyway, I'm not sure if she's just not aware of their policies, if she's really new, or if she is just a bit in her own world (IYKWIM). My hospital is not known to be VBAC friendly. In fact, I saw a post over at another board site where someone was asking about our hospital and how to avoid a c-sec. She'd talked to 20 women, 19 of whom had ended up with a c-sec! VBAC friendly, I don't think so.
Either way, I don't see the real battle starting till I hit 36w, or 32, as she wants me to come in for a consultation about my VBA2C choice. That should be fun. I plan on going in armed.
Any way I just wanted to update. I know I don't get to post over here as much as I want at the moment, but we're going through some transitions right now. Hopefully some things will calm down in a few weeks and I can post more.
