I have a question for all you ladies, are the chances of having a successful VBAC higher the longer you wait after having had the previous c-section? To be a bit more clear, I had a vaginal delivery with my first, and a c-section with my second a week ago, and I will not be having anymore babies for at least 5 years, so I'm wondering if I have a good chance of having a VBAC 5 years from now? I guess my logic is that my uterus and everything that was tampered with during the surgery would have had a lot of time to heal, but is that even a factor? I am just really hoping to have a VBAC for the next one, and if I can't I'm not sure I would even have anymore kids =/

So here's an update..Went to the doctors this morning..Had an ultrasound first where they discovered fluid level was low. Guess it's supposed to be between 8-20 and it's slightly above 5..Anyway, I have to go back for another u/s in the morning. If it's even slightly lower I will have to have a c-sec tomorrow afternoon...Not really what I wanted to hear, but at this point it is out of my hands...

A lot of times fluid will drop significantly before spontaneous labor...
That's why a lot of women will lose a few pounds the week before they give birth.
