So I'm trying to decide on attempting a VABC or just scheduling a c section for my second child. My first son was three weeks late. I was in labor for 72 hours (60 without drugs!) my cervix wouldn't dilate until I had the pitocin and the epidural so that the docs could turn the pit up to the highest level (that was after the first 60 hours of drug free labor). I dilated pretty quickly after that. When it was time to push I pushed for 4 hours! My son wouldn't come down. They finally did a c section and it turned out that his head was twisted the wrong way and he was not going to make it through my pelvis (plus he had a big head and I'm a tiny tiny girl). Since he was a big baby and I'm not a big person they had to cut my uterus an extra couple inches downward. That means that I can never have pit again.
Will it be safe to attempt a vbac with the extra cut? Is it safe? Is it worth it?
