    Default I'm back!

    I know a few of you were here last time I came on and I look forward to getting to reknow you all and know everyone else.
    In case you don't remember me, and don't feel bad if you don't, I was here about 2 years ago when I was due with DD. With her I ended up having a c-sec due to a distended stomach from a poly-cystic kidney.
    Well I'm due with #3 18 May and we're all excited here.
    To save a post, my hospital, the only one I can deliver in with my insurance apparently, has a no VBA2C policy, which I've planned on challenging since having DD. Had my 16 wk appt and when the doc was going over my history she saw my 2 prev c-secs and asked if I was planning for a 3rd. I told her 'no', she nodded and moved on. Now I know that doesn't mean much but I've been taking all this on faith and its just nice not to have to fight yet. I hope this keeps up, but I know they won't make a big deal about it till I get into my final weeks.
    That's about it for me.

    Oh, and DD is doing great. In fact she has like 6 words, is imitating words and just started walking 2 weeks ago! I'm so proud of her.

    Tiff! I remember you, welcome back! I'm happy to see you back here! I'm glad to hear Rya is doing well! Congrats on baby #3 and good luck with your VBA2C!! I imagine you know about the new ACOG VBAC guidelines?

    yes I've had the paper printed out with highlights on it for the doc for when the arguements start, but I haven't needed to use it yet, that and I keep forgetting it. With this one I'm planinng on getting a doula to come with me to the hospital to be an advocate, and to help me of course. I just want someone else there besides a doc to tell me if a c-sec is needed, that way I don't feel pressured or tricked into it. That's about all I can do. I tried to get a midwife, even if I had to pay out of pocket, but the one I found I liked wouldn't take me since it hadn't been 2 years between births and I can repect that. I'd look for another midwife who might attend me but our pay has been screwed so much since DH came home, and not in a good way, that I don't think I could pay myself anymore, which is a bummer.

    The fact that they don't have a set policy is a good thing! There's statistically no difference between VBA1C and VBA2C, and ACOG guidelines now recommend that women with two low transverse cesareans should be considered acceptable VBAC candidates.

    Hmmm, I don't have the ACOG guideline itself bookmarked, but here's the news release. Notice the fourth paragraph:
