Robin, The reason I want to have a scheduled c-section is that I nad TONS of complications with my first pregnancy (placenta previa & bedrest for months, I didn't dilate, baby was turned wrong, went into fetal distress after 15 hours of labor). I don't want to go through all that again just to have another emergency c-section. I know that no 2 pregnancies are alike and everything, but I was terrified by what I went through and am only now able to consider having another baby. I know that VBAC is an option, and I haven't ruled it out. My doctor said I don't even have to decide until the end of my pregnancy. I am just trying to figure out what I want to do. I want this adhesion removed. Why go through one surgery (laparoscopy) and then try to give birth VBAC, which is a RISK that may result in another EMERGENCY surgery, when I can just have a scheduled c-section. Ithis adhesion can be removed at that time, I would be killing 2 brids with one stone.
