I also have been diagnosed with complete placenta previa but it's posterior. My doctor has me scheduled for a C-section at 39 weeks. I have been reading many many posts that say it's better to have c-section at 38 weeks like you're all discussing. I asked my doctor about this and she said because you're not bleeding and you're cervix is completely closed, we can try to go for 39 weeks. I guess deep inside my heart I'm worried and I'm not sure if it's good to wait that long. There are several factors that I'm considering. First, I live 40 minutes away from hospital so if I bleed, I will have to go to the nearest hospital which is 7 minutes away to an unknown facility with unknown doctors. Second, I heard that having posterior previa was at least better than anterior previa. Please let me know what you think on this. Third factor, is that I have made it to 37 weeks with no bleeding and my doctor checked me 3 days ago and found that I'm still completely closed.
I asked her if I can be admitted to the hospital and stay there under supervision until my scheduled c section and ofcourse the answer was no. The only way I can be admitted is if I'm going to go ahead with the c-section.
I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments on this. Should I push for c section at 38 weeks?
