I had to let that out but yeah my family is convinced that I should so I'm just going along with it to get them off my back. I'm not even pregnant yet but I'm just supposed to be planning it.
Honestly I'm one of those people who doesn't like to disappoint people and if it's anything like last time I told my Mom or any member of my Husband's family(I needed to set up childcare for my oldest last time) it will involve dirty looks,crying(It's what Mom did last time) and a lot of trying to talk me out of doing something they view as dangerous.
This mostly me just wanting to talk to someone other then my Husband but I'm planning to keep things to myself and then later on making up a reason on their mental approved list which does not include breech,questionable pelvic size or low lying placenta and schedule my c-section.
I'd talk to them but there is no winning or even let's agree to disagree and it will turn into a big fight about not doing what's best for the baby.
I thought I felt pressure to VBAC last time. I was being prepped for surgery last time and I had one of the nurses STILL repeatedly asking if I was really sure I didn't want to try longer after 9 hours of 0 descent and only 1/2cm change. 2 children under 7 lbs; 18 hours of labor walking the halls doing squats with the first one and the second one 9 hours without the epidural and when they went in surgically she was still up in my ribs.
I can take a hint that maybe they just aren't fitting and I don't want to repeat that ever again.
Anyway I think I've vented enough. Does anybody else have family quite this pushy about something THIS personal?

VB should be done if there is no medical reason to have a c-section. I have a c-section my first. VB my second. I would take VB any day. Recovery time is quick.
