I had a vbac with dd 3. All threw my pregnancy I was told that I could try it as long as I went into labour naturally. Well I didn't and was booked in for c section. At the pre op I was in tears begging them to knock me out rather than go threw the c-section again they said they would not knock me out. Anyway I was booked in to have the cection and they rang up to cancel too busy. By this time I was like 9 days overdue. Lucky for me my blood pressure got high and I was sent to hospital. at hospital a midwife asked me if I had considered been induced I said I was told that They wouldn't. Well obviously she knew who to talk to because they induced me yah yah yah. 11 days overdue and 2 days before the next scheduled c-section. At first they tried a ballon, that allowed my cervix to open enough to break my waters. I still had not gone into labour so they than gave drugs. They said they would just give small doses not too much just enough to put me into labor. The labour was fairly intense compared to the natural birth of DD 1 but well worth it. I am now expecting baby number 4 and hope so much that I can have the same outcome. I was monitored constantly but they had the wireless kind so I could move freely around the room and at some stage they put a monitor on my baby's head.
I know how you feel I am scared ****less again my issue is I am needle phobic. I have to try to have faith that I have done it once and can do it again I have to stay positive and if I get told they won't induce me well I know better (same hospital). Good luck.
