I've already put on the maximum weight for my BMI and although my OB is very supportive of a VBAC he has said if I can't control my weight and she keeps growing at this rate my chances will be lowered dramatically.

    I am also terrified of going ahead with a VBAC and needing an emergency c-section again anyway.
    So after my appointment yesterday OH and I had a big discussion and have decided we are more comfortable with a calm planned c-section. I am worried about the recovery but have a lot of support.

    This thread has reassured me thanks
    Oh I'm glad someone else is finding this helpful

    Good luck!

    And please pop back and tell me all about your experience?
    I'm not due till January so will be here waiting with anticipation

    Can you speak to your midwife and ask about changing your choice?

    Default Elective after bad emergency experience...

    I had a bad EMC with my 2nd and had planned to have a VBAC with my third, something scared me at 32 weeks and I booked in for elective C . I was so scared of the pain and dealing with a newborn as well as 4 and 2 year old.
    It was so much better the second time! I went home on day 3 with a hop to my step! Nothing like the first time!
    Now I'm planing VBA2C, I'm not pregnant yet, still got 6 months or more before TTC but even after my great c section I still want to have natural again :-)

    Argh this annoys me! Some Drs talk bulk dust!!!!!!!
    My friend has had 2 VBAC's the first was 9pd2 and the second 10pd6. The size of your baby is not the factor in successful VBAC.
    I hope you get your VBAC experience , good luck

    Lol thanks Kelly! I'm not going to make a final decision just yet, so undecided. Would absolutely love a VBAC but so scared of the same thing happening.
    I have another OB appointment in 2 weeks so will discuss my worries then and see what he suggests

    I would of loved a VBAC but I seriously only at 32 weeks had a major freak out and rang my OBGYN straight away so he could book me in.
    Mothers instinct is crazy, if I birthed naturally with him I likely would of given birth to a still born or an oxygen deprived baby and brain damage. He had 2 knots in his cord that were never picked up in ultrasound. Thank god for that!
    To be honest I had no reason for changing my mind just that it ended up making my heart race and I had no explanation of why it was racing.
    You can always try and put a time frame on it, like 8 hours.
    Having had all types, natural , emergency and elective I still yearn to have natural again. Nothing beats it but all births are amazing and at the end of the day as long as everyone is happy and healthy it doesn't matter how they come into the world.
