Dh & i decided that this is our last baby, but I have to have a c-section, but my question is- do you think my dr would allow me to go into labor naturally & then do the c-section? My dd was induced so I dont know what its like to go into labor on my own & i really want to!! lol  :)  Anyone have any advice?

If you would like to go into labor you should try for VBAC. I wanted a vbac with my dd but she ended up breech. So you should look into it.

well i didnt have a c-section with my dd, i just had a horrible vaginal delivery that ended with a terrible tear that i dont want to risk re-opening & going through that drama all over again (i couldnt sit for weeks) so my dr suggested we do a c-section to avoid it.

I was induced with my son and ended up having a c-section. I can tell you this it hurt more going through labor and then having a c-section. I have a repeat c-section with dd and i recovered alot faster(but that is me). More likely they are not going to let you go into labor, they are going to set a date for you.

that makes me feel better! my dr thinks i will heal faster this time too & not have so many issues to deal with afterward...

It can't hurt to ask, but I doubt it.

Good luck!

Unless you can somehow go into labor before the date they choose for you, I don't think the Dr. will let you.  Sorry, and Good Luck
