I also had a C-section and doubt I had much choice in the matter, although I honestly don't think I ever asked... I always dreamed of the dramatic scene where I'd be sitting at home holding my belly telling my husband, "It's time..." and we'd laugh and kiss and drive off into the sunset to have our little baby... (vaginally but with lots of drugs...[;)])
Anyway... getting to my point... I talked with my doctor about this before we started TTC again and she said that it's really a bit premature to discuss, if I have a "textbook" pregnancy and I'm 37++ weeks w/no problems then, maybe... If I have issues then, we'll do what the situation dictates...
Personally, I think I will feel more comfortable with a repeat C. I've just turned way too much into a control freak to be comfortable with nature taking it's course... I just don't much trust my body anymore to be honest with you. Cynical I know and, I hope my *sunny* disposition relaxes a bit when I actually do become pregnant but, we'll see.[8D]
