I would love to know too about the dangers of the c-section scar tearing with a vbac? I hav been told by obgyn that this is a possibility and therefore cannot hav epidural! Anyone know anything regarding that?

I had No. 1 (10lb 3oz) emergency c section after being induced ten days over and 22 hours into labour. No.2 (8lb8oz) came on due date, no pain relief, after only 12 hours.
Two totally different expereinces cant believe the same end result, two lovely healthy babies.

I had a sec w/ #1 after pushing for 3.5 hrs. So I knew that my body was capable of of a v-bac. I had #2 22 mos later with a successful v-bac. They induced me 15 days early and he was still 8#12! Labor including delivery was 20 hrs, with pushy for 1.5 hrs. I did opt for c-secs with #3 and #4 due to a bad back and the fact that I walked away from the v-bac with just as many "stitches" as I had in my sec, just in a different area. It was something that I felt I wanted to experience and my son kinda likes knowing that he is the only one that came out "that way." Good luck1
