"I had a c section first, then was induced with #2, 20 mos later.
I see a high-risk ob doc(maternal fetal medicine) who has seen cases like you and I thousands of times. If your regular ob won't do it, you might consider looking for a MFM…"

I'm really desperate to manage a vbac this time!See More

If you are traveling with airline tickets and an itinerary from them or a travel site like Expedia, etc, you should be able to ask your insurance company for a "vacation override". In general, you have it correct 2X supplies, but take it with a grain of salt. I always carry double the infusion sets and insulin, but maybe only 1.5X the insulin reservoirs, batteries, etc.
