I'm going crazy debating a second c section,or a vbac. my first son i had vaginally at 41 wks and my second son at 36 wks last april via. c section. I've been looking on the.internet and heard good and bad things about vbacs. i just don't know what i.want to do after my section i had such problems with my incision healing and reopening and its still tender to touch sometimes ...any advice??

My section was 13 months ago but when I'm due it will be around 21 months from it..

My kids were 14 months apart so I didnt even attempt and im glad I personally didnt it was too soon. This time ill be 5 years space and im undecided what I will do. I think since I've had two sections I feel more comfortable with that but I think just wait and see what happens as you get farther along and what your doctor thinks.

Kinda off topic but since this is ur third pregnancy, I thought u would know. I'm 7 weeks with my 2nd and I already look 4 months pg but no symptoms at all. How was ur second pregnancy like? Please share.

My second pregnancy was rough. i did show a lot sooner bc my tummy muscles were already stretched so that normal.  its was a ok pregnancy untill i hit 6 months then i got the flu. i ended up losing the 15 lbs i gained at the.point and then a additional 10 i was sick for almost 2 weekz and my doctor kept telling me that it was fine i didn't need to come in. they also told me hewas head down from that point until the end. fast forward at 376 weeks (april 7th) i had a doc apt amd for.my last few they said.i measured smaller thab normal (still didn't seem concerned) and my sisters a rn she keep bugging me to call and see if.my fluid was low in my ultrasound that day. By the time i.got ahold of.someone the.nxt day (also was my baby shower) they doctor immediately called me back and said it was low and he was transverse!!! So she wanted me to come.in right awafor a section but i told them that i.would be in the nxt.day and he was born 3 wks early and diagnosed w iugr je was only 4.3lbs. they never even said anything about his iugr it was on my paperwork!!! I feel like the hospital played a major part in his growth restriction by.not.having be.come in for fluids.when.i.was.sick. so follow your gut.looking back i should have.just went to the er and they would have put.me on a iv. I'm hoping for a vbac.this time bc my oldest son is from a previous relationship and i want my hubby to witness a vaginal birth so bad. and I'm 6wks 3 days.and.i.also look 3 months.so yes its all normal. :-) goodluck momma!!!

Thanks for sharing your experience. OMG. You had a rough 9 months but I'm glad that everything worked out well in the end for you and ur baby. Did you have symptoms with your second pregnancy?

Lol I feel you. Is it normal that I have no symptoms at all? 2nd pregnancy and 7 weeks- no symptoms.

I'm sure everything is.fine. you said your already starting to show. so that's a good sign!! :-) when is.your first ob apt to check heartbeat and everything ??? That's always reasuring!! Mine is nxt thursday 29th i have mt first ultrasound I'm excited! :-)

I'm hoping for the best. I have been googling and some info I got off there aren't pleasant regarding having no symptoms. I haven't made appt with ob but I have appt with my family doc June 3. Really exited here too!

No.matter what you look up theres always negative stuff. I've been. looking up vbacs and some of that.stuff is awful!! But i might just still try i don't know yet. :-) i guess i still have.time to decide. why not a apt with ob? As soon as i tested positive at hm i went in at 4 wks and 2 days.for.my pregnancy confirmation and they set up my may 29th apt. i wouldn't be able.to wait until june 3 then have to wait.longer for the baby doctor. i don't have.patience very well lol :-)

Have you consulted your doctor abt vbacs? Oh no it's not that I'm waiting till June 3, It takes that long to get an appt. with my doc , Aetna PPO *****. All the in net work docs are so busy lol either that or ppl are always seeing a doc. And I haven't gotten appt with ob/Gyn cuz of my current insurance plan. I should have applied for Obama Care.

Ohh i have.Medicaid and my last pregnancy ended with.my section last april so i still had all my insurance from then so i gues it was.easier for.me this.time. when i go the 29th ill discuss it.bc.it'll be.my.first hour long.apt.and ultrasound :-) i guess june 3 really isn't that far away :-)
