So I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant. I had a c-section with my first child, and I REALLY want to try for a VBAC with this one. However, he's not cooperating. First off, he's measuring 6 weeks ahead (big baby). Secondly, he's breech. I know a big baby isn't necessarily a huge problem, except that my first child had a huge head, and this one seems to be developing the same way. Also, if he stays breech, forget it, I won't have a chance to even try.
So....they're going to try to turn him next week. Because of his size, and how far along I am, they don't want to wait any longer. I've heard several horror stories about how much the procedure hurts, and how it's very rarely successful anyway, so I don't know if I should put myself and the baby through it, or just give up and schedule another c-section. Has anybody had this procedure, and how did it go? Thanks!
