Well, I've known about this board, but I guess I always assumed it was for home, water, birthing center, unassisted, etc. births until I stumbled across a post where someone mentioned this board had a lot of VBAC mamas on it. So I thought I'd browse and possibly introduce myself!
My name is Jen and I'm due with our second little boy on 6/21. My first DS was born at 36 weeks via c-section due to fetal distress (non-reassuring fetal heart tones). I went into labor on my own at 35w6d after being on bedrest since 31 weeks for preterm labor, and made it to about 5 cm before the c-section was decided. DS's apgars were 1/8 (he had the cord knotted around his neck three times), so I don't regret the c-section decision at all. However, this time around, I'd like to do things a lot differently!
I'm currently 33 weeks and doing awesome! No signs of preterm labor this time around, so I'm really feeling confident in a fullterm birth this time. I've opted for a natural VBAC in the hospital with my OB this time, and have done tons and tons of research on it. I guess the last part of my journey would include lots of thoughts and opinions from other mamas out there as I inch closer to my EDD.
Anyhow, that's me! Just thought I'd stop in and say hello!
