i have been researching about having a vbac after a c-section. i have found alot of information, but i am still unsure, so i wanted to ask others what they would do. Heres the facts: while i have only had one c-section, i was induced due to preeclampsia. I was trying to have a natural birth, but i would not dialate more than 4, and they had given me the max amount if the labor inducing drug allowed, and still no progression. I am also hypoglycemic, and if my blood sugar levels drop, it can be disasterous for me. I had been in labor for over 10 hours, and everyone knows that your only allowed ice chips while in labor. I was becoming so exhausted, and they had already broke my water, and my blood sugar was dropping, i was becoming to weak to even push. It was at that point that they put me in for an emergency c-section. They did the horizontal cut(im told thats the safest candidate for having a vbac after csection), but im not quite a year and a half out from my c-section, and not im about a month and a half pregnant, and really concerned seeing as i still have pains around my scar from time to time. thoughts anyone?
