Gosh its incredible how informed we become once we have our first babies regarding what happens in the next birth. I was really worried how I would cope with a second c-section with no family in the country except for my DH, but all over my notes said VBAC I was that determined. Lucky my OB was away for the weekend and his partner was incredible and even suggested syntocin after a few hrs in. But everyone is different, don't let anyone persuade you to change your mind.

Thanks for the stories ladies!
Missred, it sounds like your motivation was similar to what mine is - it's more about the recovery than the birth itself. Good to hear you had success.
I had my hospital booking appt yesterday and left it feeling very positive towards achieving a VBAC. Not that they were all 'you go girl' more that their attitude was very much that VBACs are just another routine type of delivery for them. They don't like to use epidurals for them but other than that said they're not treated much differently to a standard Vbirth and I won't be 'on the clock' as they'll expect it to be slow like a first birth. So currently planning VBAC as the way to go... Now I just need bub to get his head down not up!

I'm going to say yes you really do need your heart set on it BUT only because at 37 weeks I totally broke down I called my doula I was in prodomal labour and in so much pain hadn't slept in days and just wanted to get the baby out but now at 39 weeks I have calmed down a bit and know that I really want this vbac. I had a csection with ds as he was breech and my placenta was tearing and this pregnancy is very very different, very much like a first pregnancy

So glad you managed to calm down again Akeastall - good luck, I hope you get your VBAC any day now!!!
I'm currently stressed that the decision might be made for me. Bub feels like he's very happy in a diagonal breech sort of position at the moment. I know being my 2nd bub I don't need to start worrying about that until 35 weeks or so though.
Plus my recent GD diagnosis has my OB insistent that if I don't have baby before 39 weeks spontaneously I'll need a CS as they won't induce or let me go past 39wks. In fact my last appt with him he seemed a lot less supportive of my VBAC on the whole than he had at every previous appointment... grrrr, I thought I had a supportive OB!
