I would make sure your hospital has a "breakdown bed" or a birthing stool; squatting opens the pelvis over than 20% more than lying down.

I would VBAC all the way for safety sake. Unfortunately I was unable to VBAC this last December due to a sudden change in my health but the plan from the beginning of that pregnancy was to VBAC. If I ever have another child I will still try to find a health care provider who would work with me on a VBA2C. In most cases VBAC is healthier/safer for the mother and it's healthier/safer for the baby as well. Educate yourself well on VBACs, at least look for an OB who is open to VBACs that way it is an option for you should you so choose. It's your baby and your life don't let anyone push you either way. Congratulations by the way!
