I have my next antenatal appt in a couple of days and am getting a list of questions together as I always forget once I am in there.
What are some questions I should ask with regard to VBAC? OB already knows I want to try and is supportive (all going well of course). I know they do offer wireless waterproof monitoring and I can use shower/bath if all is well. Other than that I am thinking:
- how long will they let me go over before they decide to induce?
- how long will they let me go over and still try for VBAC?
- how many hours of labor do they consider too long for a VBAC attempt?
- what are the reasons they would refuse to let me attempt?
Anything else I should ask?

What are your induction options?

Perhaps I just ask her to clarify when they are likely to intervene and why...

Ask your OB about movement restrictions. Even if you do have to have the CTG with the cords, it's still very possible to labour actively and off the bed. Ask what they can do at the hospital to facilitate that (birthing stools, beanbags, etc).

I've also said I am not going to 'fight' for a VBAC if my OB doesn't think it's safe. I chose her because I trust her judgement and ultimately the birth is about mum and bub being safe. My intense desire to have a natural birth last time caused me great distress and depression when it didn't happen, I want to avoid that and keep an open mind as to the possibilities.

Ask when they want you to come in. My hospy wanted me early for my vbac but when I rang to talk to the MW they didn't think I was in labour so arrived fully dilated.
