    Had my final appointment today, saying this as the next I have is past my due date and I'm hoping to not make that one!:D;)

    All went fine, BP is normal, he only listened to baby's HB for about 5 seconds which did miff me off a bit! But baby is fine and still free which I expected anyway.

    They got my notes from my previous hospital and section and I have a 'normal' scar so it's all fine to attempt my vbac! Whoohoo!!
    It showed in my notes that I dilated last time to 6cm, but every time they checked me it would alter. for example I would be 6cm then 3cm, then 5cm and so on!
    Has this ever happened to anyone else?

    I'm happy to know that I did achieve 6cm whilst being induced and using G&A and one shot of pethidine. I just hope I can do that again but stay at home for longer and only use G&A which I hope will be achievable as I won't have any augmentation making the contractions more painful.

    I'm taking my RLT capsules religiously!

    And I just really hope I can do this, I want it so bad, I hope this feeling encourages me to accept the contractions and just let it happen iykwim?!

    The mw came to see me this morning as i haven't seen them for a few weeks and she wanted to see what the consultant said.

    This morning I still have glucose in my wee. :(my tummy is measuring 34 weeks, so bang on. :)Although the baby is currently breech, which is fine at the moment, but by 36 weeks she should be head down. Which is only 10 days away!:( If she isn't head down she will probably send me for a scan to see why. At the moment she thinks it's because I'm carrying a lot of water allowing her to tumble and swish about because she still has room too. :rolleyes:

    She said if every thing is normal then she would be happy to do the sweep at 39 wks.:D

    I just hope this baby doesn't end up being breech or else it's c-section here I come! Again!
    :cry:
    Sometimes it just seems to be one thing after another with me! All I want is to be able to push a head down baby out of my foof myself! Surly that's not to much to ask!

    Ohh and she also asked about my feet size (relation to pelvis size?) and I said when I'm slimmer I have a very small frame and small size 3-4 feet. She also commented on the size of my husbands head in photos! Apparently he has a manly head shape lol! Will have to tell him that later! Although I do think there is some truth in what she was getting at.:confused:

    I am sure baby will sort itself out ;), 2nd and subsequant babies apparantly have a bit more room and can take a little longer to get themselves into the right position. Try googling it and you will find loads of info on positions you can do to encourage babes into a head down position. I was asked about foot size on my 1st as he wasn't descending very quickly so I assume it must have some relation to the size of your pelvis? Good luck I am sure it will all come right in the end, and you can always blame your husband and his 'manly' head LOL, Take care, Jo
