Re: VBAC? What VBAC?

Oh, my. I feel for you. I fought them on it, and didn't end up with the section on the tenth. At my midwife's insistence, we called around to half the ob/gyns in the city, and finally found one who would do a post-dates consult for me, today (I'm now 40 + 3.) She's got me scheduled for a section as of May 23rd, which is exactly 42 weeks. She also says, mind you, that my cervix is not currently favourable for spontaneous labour, she would not advise augmentation or induction, and if my waters break but I don't go into labour, she would suggest going straight to the section. But that's a lot better than all those same recommendations, and a section date of May 10th. I'm glad I waited, and I'm sure if I get to the 23rd, I won't want to wait any longer even if I could.

But four months in advance? Tell them to start looking at dates in the 41st week, because that just isn't enough time. And look at some of the links I was given, further up this thread - they were very helpful. Good luck!
