Quoting misanthrope:" My VBAC attempt failed as well. People look at me like I'm crazy when I say I will try for a VBAC2. You give me hope!!! If you don't mind my asking why did you labor attempts fail?"
My first son was an induction at 8 days past EDD because of oligohydramnios (low amniotic fluid) but after 16 hours of labor he went into fetal distress & I had only dilated to a fingertip so he was born via emergency C.
My daughter was a repeat 10 days past EDD because my Dr was NOT covered to provide an induction for a VBAC and, well, nothing was happening. I was originally willing to go a full 2 weeks past EDD but extenuating circumstances (my husband was on military leave that was quickly getting eaten up as we were all waiting) I eventually chose to go ahead with the C-section.
My 3rd and final little one decided to be my "3rd time's a charm" baby and came on his own at exactly 41 weeks
Most people thought I was crazy for trying again but I knew I'd really regret it if I didn't at least TRY and see if my body could do it. I'm soooo glad I did!
