My name is Trish. I am 40 years old and a proud mom of 3 beautiful children. Boy 20, girl 17 and baby girl 4 years old.
My first was a C-Section. My second was VBAC and I loved the idea that I was able to have VBAC after C-Section. The third was of course 13 years later and I was high risk due to the age factor. I most say GOD was awesome because I did not have any of the tests or complications that go along with the age limit factor.
I had a very very good i would say great pregnancy and if I could do it again I would. She was different from all the pregnancies. She did tricks in the belly and everything. Would not let me know what she was ahead of time; would not let the technicans or the doctors see what they needed to see. She was very stubborn and still is.
I had planned on VBAC;however, I continued to get bigger and bigger and would not dilate. So when I went to my last check up we did not get any fetal movement. Doctor asked me if I wanted to induce or have C-section. I called my hubby so that him and the children can come down to the hospital.
I opted for C-Section since I had experienced both. Glad I did; the cord was wrapped around her neck. Told you previously she did tricks in the belly.
The recovery was amazing. Had her on in the evening; did not want the pain killers in recovery and was walking around the next day. The doctors could not believe that I had just had a C-Section.
So my advice is to do VBAC and if things go wrong then do what you have to do.
Good Luck and CONGRATULATIONS!!!
