    I am right with you rin. Fear and guilt are exactly what I struggle with. Optomism is great but it doesn't trump realism.

    Big babies aren't necessarily harder to birth - smaller babies are the ones who tend to twist themselves into awkward positions! I would be wary of being induced - inductions are often the beginning of a cascade of intervention that leads to a C-section. I have not had a VBAC (or a c-section) myself, but I think they can be awesome, healing experiences. I'd go for it

    Please check out mamabirth.blogspot.ca
    She has so very many stories about successful VBACs from women like yourself.
    She sometimes does let women write in about their unassisted home births (which I really don't agree with - I personally had a beautiful experience with my midwife but I strongly believe all births should have an attendant if possible).
    Hope reading other's experiences helps!
