I've been lurking on this board for a long time... on and off since my daughter was born in 2008. To make a long story short, I planned to have a natural birth with her, but she didn't tolerate labor well right from the beginning, and after 13 hours she was in very serious fetal distress and I ended up with an emergency c-section (they put me under general anesthesia to get her out as fast as possible, so I didn't even get to be awake for her birth).
We are now TTC our second child, and plan to attempt a VBAC with a practice of midwives, although it will be at a hospital (DH just isn't okay with a home birth, and unfortunately there are no freestanding birth centers in the area, which is actually what I would prefer).
I know I will need all the support and encouragement I can get, and I am looking forward to getting to know you ladies!
Welcome and best of luck TTC! This board is a wealth of information!!
