Hi Jaden / Maggilg, Doctor says it is your wish on VBAC.. however in their hospital out of 10 cases of VBAC, only 4 succeeds it seems. Aneways, I am not so much keen on VBAC.. During my first delivery, I started for normal delivery only.. had Epidural.. immediately after Epidural, my BP went too low and started fainting and shivering. That memory is still haunting me to choose VBAC. W.r.t. buying items.. we do not buy before the birth of the baby. However, we made some cotton nappies ourselves with new cotton dhoties and made some cotton flannels with sarees. I have to buy lot of cotton nappies still.. all other items, i had made a list for my first kid which i had shared with my DH. He has to go and buy the stuff and come! Holding the kid, yeah.. even i remember how much scared i was when i was supposed to hold my first LO. he was not that big baby also (birth weight was 2.76 kgs only). i always felt he was so fragile to lift.. but got used to it slowly.. this time, may be due to prior experience, i do not have that fear! I have my 36 weeks checkup next Tuesday. Along with that, doctor had suggested to have a watch on AF level as it was 9 during my 34 weeks visit. We all are almost there.. hardly few days for some in fact.. All the best!!! Hope we all have a safe delivery and enjoy Motherhood!
