Contractions before scheduled c section

Common Questions and Answers about Contractions before scheduled c section

contractions

I am 35weeks now n had extremely strong but not rhythmic contractions for 5hours this morning. I am scheduled for a 39week C-section but my first came early n an emergency so im super nervous about this one and so forth.
Well my scheduled c section is in a week. And I'm trying to get prepared, any advice of how to prepare or what to do. Please let me know :) Thanks very much !
That is my fear! My c section is scheduled for the 31st but I am afraid to go into labor or have my water break before then :-( I hope we get some stories maybe ease my mind a bit on how it will work that way .
it will knock out sensation and if you're exhausted then you may fall asleep if you've been having contractions, but since you're scheduled to get a c before labor starts most likely you'll be wide awake through the whole thing. they very very rarely knock a woman out during a c-section, and trust me you don't want to be the case that they have to put unconscious because that's not usually a good sign.
So i have to schedule a c-section 3wks before my due date .. So good luck to all you ladies who also need to schedule a c-section, I would rather plan than take a chance.
My question is - has anyone gone into labor (or at least started dilating) before their scheduled c-section? If so, did they re-schedule it or did you have to go into full blown labor first? How dilated were you when this decision was made? I'm getting very anxious and my doctor keeps giving me the wait and see answer. So I'm curious if anyone else out there has been in my situation before... Thanks!
If you have a scheduled csection, and you have contractions before that date, do u technically have to have regular ones.. like ive heard you shouldnt really go in until theyre like 5min apart.
I am scheduled for a c section June 9th. What if i go into labor before then? Will they stop my contractions or will they just do my c section before the date?
how about asking your Dr to do an amnio to check the babys lung developement before doing the c-section. That could put your mind at ease. Good luck!
They told me that the doc and the hospital will not get paid for a c-section/induction before 39 weeks unless there is a medical reason to make it necessary. Something to do with rules imposed by the March of Dimes.
I had a c section 7 years ago and I feel like things have changed. Has anyone had one recently? I heard they call you now when they have a bed free. How does that work? My husband and I live an hour away from hospital. Does things change having a c section at 35/36 weeks.
Ok ur gonna start to freak me out!!coz i have strong chance to have one as im having twins!!"i was calm until now!!!!!
The good news is that your next delivery doesn't have to be that way. If you choose a scheduled C/Section, there will be plenty of time to be sure the anesthesia is working to its fullest, and hopefully things will go smoothly and you will recover very quickly. I am grateful beyond words to hear that at least you have recovered from your ordeal, and that your daughter is healthy. I wish you the best in the future. Thank you for sharing your story.
I ended up with an emergency c-section after 20 hours of labor (at the hospital) because I'm too small to deliver a baby vaginally, so with my second I was scheduled for a c-section at 39 weeks and that night I was uncomfortable and couldn't sleep all night but I thought it was because I was nervous but when I got to the hospital and was being preped for surgery the nurse goes did you know you're in labor, and now I'm 33 weeks with #3 and have been contracting on and off for weeks and my baby i
Simply jump on the internet!!! Just about every pregnancy site has a list of symptoms for "true" and "false" labor. I know them by heart, even though I'm now scheduled for a c-section. Just about any question you have can be found on the internet these days. Sadly, I have gotten sooooo much more info there than from my own doctor's office.
I'm just wondering - what happens if my water breaks, or I go into labor before my scheduled c-section date? Will it then turn into an emergency c-section again? Or would I have an unplanned VBAC? I already asked my doctor to move up my c-section to 38 weeks (I really, really don't feel like I'm going to make it to 39 weeks) but he said no way.
I'm having a scheduled c-section to..I'm 32weeks..
I was on hospital bed rest and had a schedule c section at 34 weeks with my 3rd because I had a complete previa and started bleeding at 30 weeks.
I was on the phone with everyone. I ended up having a c section. The rate of c section with induction is scary! So just rest,realx... do NOT scream through your contractions. You will waste energy! I screamed lol it got me nowhere. They will break your water moSt likely. They have a little thingy that looks a bit like a crochet hook. Bit of pain...then GUSH. Be positive. Own your birthing experience. They like to boss first timers around in order to make things go smoothly for them.
Chances are you will have to have another C section. Doctors say there many risk to having a vaginal birth after a c section.
I did, I chose a repeat c-section after my first emergency c-section, doctor gave me 2 dates to pick from and I chose one, and they did the pre op. where I met with an anesthesiologist, and met at the hospital for my c-section! Absolutely LOVED my c-section experience, especially since it was planned, it was so calming, so relaxing, and absolutely beautiful, honestly I wouldn't have had it any other way! Healing is really really not that bad either.
) Anyway, my second was a planned repeat c-section - sort of. I was scheduled for a c-section at 39 weeks, but she decided to make her appearance at 37 weeks. But this time I certainly wasn't that far into labor, so we had much more time. They hooked me up to monitors, put in an IV and prepped me. Once I got into the OR, I got the spinal. This time is was more painful, but not too bad. I felt a sharp, shooting pain down my left leg, which they said was normal.
I think it depends on what your doctor has done in the past. I know some are c-sect gung ho and others refuse to do it unless there are complications or a hx of previous c-sect. I personally would not elect to have one. Why go through major surgery just so I can pick a convienant time to have the baby.
Hello ladies! My Dr told me I might have to have a c section and for those of you who have had them I would love to know your stories or any tips about recovery. Thanks so much!
I didn't want an epidural at first but I gave in and got it around 11pm while I was still dilated to a 4 and I was scared to death I would have to have a C-section (which is something that might happen if something doesn't go right) but at about 130 am, the nurse came back in and said that I was dilated to a 10 and 100% effaced. I started pushing at 2am and my son was born at 2:20am.
Obs almost always want you to have a c section if you've had one before because there's a risk of the old c section incision coming open during labor. As to how soon, usually just a couple weeks before your due date.
The head midwife at the hospital told me that as the scans they performed of my uterus to inspect the scarring came back quite well, that should I go into labor naturally before the scheduled c-section date that they would do their best to allow me to deliver naturally providing that I understood that this would mean very close monitoring and that she would allow no 'grey area' eitherbubs is happy or not, no in between.
