Re: Frustrated, upset, selfish. Emotional VBAC hopeful's thoughts

I know how you feel. I can honestly say I was jealous. My mom had 5 natural births, my sisters had 4 natural births between them and here I was with a c/s. I was nervous w/ my VBAC as well, but not so much as whether it would be successful or not, but what was natural labor going to be like; how would it start, how long would it last, would I be able to manage the pain the way I'd planned, etc. I have late babies as well and was 41+4 when I delivered my VBAC baby. The best advice I could give is take time to meditate every day. Reassure yourself that you can totally do this! I also had to realize that, if for some reason my VBAC wasn't successful, I'd done my best in the attempt and to be happy w/ the outcome of a healthy baby and mama.
SAHM , happily married to DH since 4/05; Mommy to our little Doodles 2/08, my VBAC babies 3/10 and 4/12.
