With my first c-section my doc told me that I couldn't have a baby within 12 months if I wanted to try a vbac, so I got pregnant 9 months after baby was born. My first attempt at vbac didn't work out, but my doc then told me that we'd have to keep an eye on a bunch of factors if I wanted to attempt it again and 18 months was ideal between babies. Well, #3 was just born 17 months after #2 and was a successful vba2c. But I met all the criteria my doctor laid out before he'd be comfortable letting me try... Baby had to be in the right position (of course), ultrasound had to show her to be under 10lbs (and she was), and the ultrasound of the scar on my uterus had to show it was thicker than 3.5mm (it was 7mm).
