In brief: Best answered by OB

Your OB has more data on the issue & the reason for your first c/s may still be an issue for the second.
A pelvis that is too narrow for the babies size is one reason that vbac would be unwise. If your OB thinks your pelvis is wide enough to permit delivery & no other issues arise, a vaginal birth may be reasonable. It would be best to do it at a facility that could move quickly to cs if problems.
