Yep on my back... Traditional hospital style.

Re: VBAC and pitocin

I was induced with my VBAC. I was 40wks, 3days, and I don't feel like I was given many options. It went beautifully, in the medical sense, but it was definitely not the birth I had hoped for. This one will completely natural, no IV, no Pit, no Epi. I don't care if I get to 43 weeks, I'm not agreeing to interventions unless they are medically necessary.

My ob is completely against use of pitocin for a VBAC. He is very pro VBAC and natural birth though. He let me go until 44 weeks....then back to the cutting room Not what I had wanted, but the result was a beautiful baby boy, so I can't complain
