Yup thanks! I guess in my case it was more like butt waters since DD was breech. The triage nurse kept disagreeing with me that my water broke...

Re: Am I a candidate for VBAC??

Hi Cricket- I totally agree! I was left to labor on my back! It was awful not getting to move. Looking back I wish I hadn't gotten the epidural because I was able to breath through the contractions, was still walking, squatting and using a tennis ball for my back (amazing). But I just thought it would be easier to get the epi biggest mistake ever. I'm really educating myself and not just going with the "medical norm". At the moment I'm hopeful that I'm pregnant, but wary to test because I am still BF and it's unknown if I am ovulating yet.

Re: Am I a candidate for VBAC??

I had a similar first birth, epi early on, he then got stuck on my pelvic bone though and just couldn't come down any further....I think I have odd shaped pelvis, tilted a bit I've since found out.


But learned my lesson with the next ones and walked and walked as long as I could. I did still get the epi though, but at a later stage, only for pushing really. Had 3 vaginal births since the c/s.


I'm sure you will be careful with weight etc now that you know about the GD and all that. That will help....although 8 11 is normal enough for a baby

Hope you get that BFP soon! I've become pregnant while breastfeeding a couple times - it definitely does happen!

Re: Am I a candidate for VBAC??

Cricket- my past two cycles have been 45 days long exactly, and I'm now on day 48. I have odd spotting for five days about two weeks ago, with a negative test about three days after it stopped. So I'm giving it until day 55 till I test. I just hate wasting my money! Lol

I know what you mean. I ended up stocking up on dollar store tests, and they worked reliably for me. Not everyone likes them though.

CONGRATULATIONS! How exciting! Wishing you all the best for a lovely pregnancy and birth. Is it possible for you to get a midwife this time around? I love my midwives. They give such nice, personal care!

Re: Am I a candidate for VBAC??

Well I definitely am wanting to birth in a hospital, but if I can get a midwife in a hospital that would be beyond awesome. For a VBAC I need to go to Columbus Ohio and finding a VBAC friendly OB or midwife has been difficult!

Each state seems to have different rules and policies, and each midwifery practice seems to have different guidelines too, but I think you should definitely be able to find a midwife who will deliver at a hospital for you.
