Say, you've had an emergency c-scetion 1st time around and you didnt go further than 8cm dilated. If i manage to have a successful vbac, will i be able to have a pseedy labour too (as it is common with subsquent babies) or not because i didnt go further than 8cm?
My first birth was the same as yours. My second was a VBAC at home in water, and was about 4 hours from start to finish with about 30 mins max for the second stage. It all happened A LOT quicker than me or the MW expected.
The MW had said to be prepared for a long second stage ie much the same as a first birth would be like.
I had a csection with DD at 36weeks, no dilation at all as elective section. Then gone on to have two VBACS.. With DS1 he was back to back took my hours to get to 3cm, then I went from 3-10cms in 20mins or so and oushed for 5mins 3 oushes and out he came delivered the head and body together.
DS2.. also back to back took a few hours to get to 3cms them 3-10cms in 10-15mins.. pushed for 2mins 2pushes and out came ds2 again head and body delivereed together.. Bith boys landed in between the mws arms as they were ready to guide the head.
Waiting to see what happens with number 4.. hoping to go fast again..
