I just wanted to introduce myself a little so I won't feel like such a huge creeper if I post on a lodge lol.
I'm Amber, DH is Chris and we are expecting baby boy #3 this fall. I've been lurking here for awhile because ideally I would like an unmedicated VBAC. DS1, Mason, was a c-sec after FTP, he was wedged up somewhere good, not descended down at all and as a result I couldn't get past 9 cm. I made it like 15 hours before caving and getting the epidural, I had hoped that it would help me relax and finish dilating, but when they went in to get him they saw that that never would've happened. DS2, Isaac, was a successful VBAC, but I did need an epidural with him because he was sunny-side-up and the back labour was excruciating for me. My VBAC was far from easy, I had tons of tearing, an episiotomy, almost 2 hours of pushing and in the end the OB had to literally reach in and turn his head so he was face down. But I made it and am hoping for another VBAC, though hopefully a little easier one this time. My boys do not seem to know how to get into good positions, so I will be looking into chiropractics and spinning babies closer to the end.
I hope to get to know you ladies a little better over the next few weeks!
