The strep B test. A lot of places don't even test for it! If they don't offer, don't worry about it!
Thats what the hospital said and was surprised I had it done. I have had it done twice before but didnt think anything of it....honestly I didnt know anything about it til I was in hospital wanting to go home and they said no sorry you cant because your test was positive.
I know I can do natural, I have done it before so it's all just a matter of the scar tissue but reading up it's just as common to rupture with having had no c section before so I don't get the big hooha about it.
There is a slight increase 0.7% or something for rupture.
I had my scar measured in Berwick before my VBA2C and the thinnest part was over 3mm which was comforting!
It doesn't really mean much but something else that gave me extra confidence.
Yeah it's not much is it yet it seems to be the factor in why VBAC's aren't so common.
Oh ok I might get this checked too, my scar healed very quickly and nicely but it would be nice to know exactly how nicely
I'm so excited and just hope I get it . I labored quickly with the first two so it may play a factor in it also if I labor to fast but not being induced this time may work in my advantage and have a longer less intense labor.
Yep for sure I lost 27 kilos to have this VBA2c . I have been healthy for over 12 months now and although I'm not as active as I was before hubby started FIFO work I'm probably the fittest I have been ever!
I am hoping my new healthier lifestyle will make for a smaller baby too! Haha my last natural attempt was 10pd6 and he just wouldn't drop into position with his big head
