...someone tell me how crazy I am for actually wanting a vaginal delivery, I swear I'm going to go :violent2: on them!!!!
People have gone from telling me I'm crazy for wanting a VBAC because it's too dangerous to telling me I'm crazy for wanting a vaginal birth when a c/s is so much better. I swear, people are coming out of the woodwork to tell me how wonderful their c/s's were and how because I've never had a vaginal birth that I just wouldn't understand. And these are women that have NEVER had vaginal deliveries!!!!!! ahhhh!!!!!
Over the weekend, we were at a wedding and a lady asked me if this was baby #1, I said, no it's #3. Then she got curious and was asking a whole bunch of other stuff, didn't bother me, but got to the part about me having both my kids via c/s and assumed I knew when this one was going to be born via c/s. I said I don't know when this one's coming cause we're not scheduling a c/s. Well, then she went on to tell me how crazy I am because she had both her kids by c/s and it was just wonderful. They give you pain meds and you don't have to deal with labor and blah, blah blah the joys of a c/s. I said I wasn't a fan of c/s's and she said, yeah, but you've never had a vaginal birth before. Of course, when I pointed out to her that she's never had a vaginal birth before, she just said, yeah, but my friends have and I got the better deal. Well, I'm not good at backing down, so of course I asked her if she knew all the risks of c/s's and she said, oh yeah, but those rarely happen. So, I kindly pointed out the actual statistics of when things happen and sometime around here is when DH overheard the conversation and saw the vein in my forehead popping and came over to remind me to go to the car and check my blood sugars cause it had been 1 hour since supper. He's so sneaky, I didn't even catch on that he was trying to keep me from going to jail for attempted murder, what a sweetheart
This isn't the 1st or even the 2nd person to tell me this! I'm going to have a vaginal delivery this time if for no other reason than so I can tell people to shove it up their a$$es the next time I'm pregnant and tell them I'm having a VBAC and they tell me how wonderful their c/s was. I get that some people really do have hard labors and really do have good c/s's and some people have bad vaginal deliveries, I truly do understand that. But don't try to explain to me that there aren't any risks with multiple c/s's unless you want an earful. I have the research and the statistics on MY side and I really don't mind filling you in on it (and of course there will be a bi@#$y undertone)!!!!
Did I mention that I'm getting a little hormonal as this pregnancy goes on?
