Quoting Brandy Rakes:" Thanks and I guess this is all kind of what I'm feeling. The first just happened all at once & I ... [snip!] ... again, csections way easier and faster and I'm just like well I'm glad your not worried but it kind of just up sets me more."
Well, your husband is wrong for one thing. I was going to have a VBA3C with my baby, but I went to 41 weeks with no sign of labor and my health started deteriorating so it was best to get her out. But plenty of doctors will let you VBAC. A c-section is not way easier. Easier for HIM, easier for the doctor, but not easier for you! Not by a long shot! Sheesh! It's major abdominal surgery...WTF is wrong with him?
Honestly, once you get there and get prepped, it goes quickly. I got down to the OR at 3:15 and my DD was born at 3:33. After they get your baby out, you'll probably be drowsy (from lack of sleep and from coming down from the adrenaline rush from the nerves) and might even fall asleep while they stitch you back up. I did with # 2, 3, and 4.
I refused to schedule mine until I was 40 weeks. I actually didn't schedule it even then... She penciled it in as an "in case", but I made it to 41 weeks exactly. I'm glad I let her bake as long as she did.
