I also have been struggling with this decision, and I am scheduled for a repeat c-section right after Thanksgiving. I had a horribly slow labor with my daughter, getting stuck at 3cm, needing oxygen and seeing her heart rate drop. It was 12 hours before I finally agreed to the c-section.

This pregnancy I have GD and high BP, plus a hernia from the first pregnancy. I feel like I am too "high risk" for the VBAC, but have a lot of lingering issues with wanting a VBAC. I am glad to know that people who have had a repeat c-section could nurse right away, and had a good recovery. I am trying to look forward to it!
