I'd rather be well-rested for a scheduled c-section than end up having a c-section after 3 days of labor and no sleep whatsoever.
((HUGS)). I have a similar experience. I long for a natural birth, but I have no faith that another hospital medicalized birth will get me there (not to mention vbac/vbamc options are getting very slim here). And hubby isn't game for a home birth (and is generally more comfortable with an elective rcs this time). So...18 days to my first scheduled c/s.

Trusting God brings life. Believing brings rest.
