|View Poll Results: Should I just go in for that 3rd c-section tomorrow?|
|Voters: 3. You may not vote on this poll|
I am 38 weeks 5 days pregnant. I had a csection scheduled for last Monday (37 + 6) and managed to put it off to tomorrow, I was sure it was too early. Since Monday my cervix has been thinning (I assume that's what's happening, it's the bloody show running more thickly daily). I REALLY wish that I could just go into labor today or tonight before the csection that is scheduled for 11:30 am. Only thing is that I have had 2 previous csections (2007 after baby wouldn't even come out with vacuum) and 2009 (repeat csection, same OB, said the baby would probably break my tailbone). My OB in Paris - and the whole hospital & midwives there - don't support vbac on a twice scarred uterus. I'm in a new city and don't know anyone who can see me through this. Unless the baby comes out in the next hours, I'm stuck with this 3rd csection....
probably so you do't accidentally go into labor before an rcs, its practice common in anti-vbac hospitals.
In this situation,, the only vbac option would seem to be semi-ubac, waiting through labor and arriving at the hospital after pushing is well under way. Or, *forget* to come in until labor starts, and bring a very pushy person along to stall until you have given labor a try/tolac. I pray you are calm mama, and feel comfortable with whateer you choose for this birth.
