I'm 20 wks and just realized that the medical university here does "high risk" vbacs. Here's my brief story on dd1 birth...
Water broke with meconium at 39 wks. Minor contractions I couldn't even feel so pitocin was started. Over the next 20 + hrs I only dilated to 5 cm maxed out on pitocin, contractions never got strong enough. Ultimately my cervix swelled and I got a fever so at 23 hrs I had a cs.
With dd2, ob said I had some acronym that meant my hips didn't separate to allow delivery with first and I could try a vbac but she didn't feel it'd be successful so I chickened out and scheduled a cs.
This time around (2-3 yrs later), I'm 39. Am I crazy to think just maybe I could attempt a vbac given my circumstances? Any resources would be appreciated. I joined the vbac group but haven't had time to look through posts.
