Is anyone else planning/expecting a repeat c-section? A little back story: I have mild pre-hyprtension issues that got a little out of hand with dd. By a little I mean only 150's over 90's while on BP meds that the MD didn't know how to dose Methyldopa properly. I was under-dosed for most of third trimester bc she didn't believe me when I explained how med worked. You need to increase the dose as your body gets used to it. (Hello, I'm a hospital pharmacist for Heaven's sake, if there is one thing I know its prescription drugs, right?) Spent the last week b4 delivery in the hospital on modified bedrest, water broke with lots of meconium and was induced. Labor stalled, bp shot up, DD's heart rate shot through the roof (they didn't tell me that part, thankfully), spiked a fever, and after 18 hrs of pitocin and only managing to get to 6 cm dialated and staying there for 2.5 hrs they asked me if I wanted a c-section. Ummm, yeah? All in all...no fun. But I have a healthy little girl and I healed really fast.
After talking about all of this with my new OB, she and I agree that for medical reasons, VBAC is not the wisest of decisions. She's willing to let me try, but the end result will likely still be a c-section. Meh! I'd rather just plan it and be prepared mentally ( I was mentally prepared for it with DD due to family history anyway, but that is another can of worms.)
So what do you gals think?
