Looks like I am preggers..Planning a UC after 5 cesareans *Update* Post #1 :(

post #1 of 29

With the latest studies showing that the risks of problems after multiple cesareans around the same as one, I am planning a UC..not sure whether I am having a UP yet though.

I attempted a UC last pregnancy, and had unassisted labor, but transferred due to a partial placental abuption, and ended up with another c-section where they seriously nicked my bladder!

Wish me luck for this one!

*UPDATE*

I guess this was not meant to be. I started bleeding and cramping last night.
Thank you so much for all of your kind words and well wishes. I pray that my time will come again.

Yay! You inspire me. Best of luck to you!

When I was TTC, I was interested in the possibility of a UC (but not overly optimistic that I was a good candidate because of my age) but was absolutely sure UP wasn't for me. It's been a process of gradual growth to find out that it IS.

Whichever was you decide to go, I'm sure you'll get a lot of support here.

Thanks,sisters! My last pregnancy was largely unassisted, but I went for the mid point ultrasound. I am considering the same thing, because of placental concern, but I really feel like I want a UP other than that.

I'm so happy that there is a place for me to go where people understand me! I know that ANY dr. right now would consider me "broken".
