Now, before I start talking about this, if you are planning on "telling me what to do" or being negative at all, stop reading now, and leave me be.
C-section. Sigh. I never thought it would happen to me....happen to you? Like it's bad? It's not bad. It's just not what I wanted. I was devastated for months and months about it. Even somedays I am still holding my head in shame, BUT I quickly get over that when I see how stinking healthy and adorable my little boy is. SO it was not a complete loss. And I know if it weren't for me having one, I would have died....he simply would NOT come out. I would know. I pushed for almost 3 long hours, and was in agony by the end. I am not trying to say I had to roughest, longest labor of all, but it is not something I am looking forward to.
VBAC is known as vaginal birth after casarean. I have considered this a few times....and by that I mean I literally have thought about this every single day since Cody was born. Some days I am so sure I will try to have a regular one again.....and others I think to myself "No freaking way, wouldn't it just be easy to schedule one?". I have researched the risks of vbac's and they aren't terrible, but your incision could rupture and you could bleed to death.......that's scary.
Sigh, I don't know what I will end up doing. I know it's something I will talk to my doctor about, pray hard, and think being thinking about everday til this #2 is born. Wheh. I just thought I would post about it. Whether you had a vaginal birth or a c-section like me, we are all amazing women who were lucky enough to concieve and bring beautiful spirits into this world.
In the words of Forrest Gump....."That's all I have to say about that...."
