I ended up with a 7 pound 7 baby and a successful vbac.
If they could accurately predict bubs size fair enough but they based purely on my fundal height whilst admitting its not an accurate indication.
They just wanted me to have a c section that's the bottom line. A lot of hospitals aren't very supportive of vbacs
She'll let you "try"? Hun, it's your
body and your baby if you want to give a VBAC a go then do it! A doctor can not tell you what to do with your own body, just say no thanks. She can schedule you all she likes but she can't force you so if you don't want it then tell her and just don't turn up
I had an ultrasound 3days before DS2 (#3) which estimated bub to be 4.39kg at 37+6wks. He was born via elective csec at 38+2wks and was 4.7kgs. My DD (#2) was vaginal delivery at 39+3, waz 4.38kgs, shoulder dystocia and permanent nerve injury to right arm. It was just assisted rupture of membranes and completely mobile labour with gas and air for pushing.
It saddens me to see new bubs being born with this nerve damage (erbs palsy) which is preventable.
Just a little update for you all. My waters broke at 1am this morning and I'm happy to say that I got the VBAC I have so desperately been wanting. Baby girl is 4.2kgs and I did sustain a 3rd tear requiring surgery. But I pushed her out in 2 hours- a couple of minutes short of the hospitals time limit for VBACs! Baby is doing great and she had no complications
Congrats and well done!!
Congratulations OP Wonderful news :-)
