Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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 !
Avatar f tn 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 .
1088509 tn?1352239847 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
192918 tn?1199454779 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!
7527173 tn?1395370380 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?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn She's already dropped and she's still sitting really high so she's basically put of room to grow. Also has anyone been through a scheduled c section? How was your experience and what should I be prepared for?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn That happened to my friend her water broke a week before her c section date. She got to the hospital they checked her then got her ready and gave her a c section.
Avatar f tn I just found out that my c section is scheduled 3 days before my due date.
6822962 tn?1396333259 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.
Avatar f tn 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!!!!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Im 36 weeks and 2 days. I have a scheduled c section for November 17th. But today throughout the day i feel a tightening in the lower part of my stomach its uncomfortable but its not real strong and dosent last for more then about 6 seconds.
128458 tn?1286480387 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.
1834324 tn?1322144704 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
Avatar n tn 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.
9127824 tn?1401847440 I'm having a scheduled c-section to..I'm 32weeks..
4093350 tn?1358099754 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.
4591205 tn?1410608774 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.
11317840 tn?1428024116 He said he would not induce me and would hope that I would have this baby on my own two weeks before my due date. I agree with you I want 2 more children after this and C-section can get in the way.
9523089 tn?1414215566 I asked my doctor about that an he said that no matter what I will be having a c section whether I go before my scheduled date or on it. I was hoping to have vaginal but they won't do it.
4093350 tn?1358099754 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.
Avatar f tn Chances are you will have to have another C section. Doctors say there many risk to having a vaginal birth after a c section.
232328 tn?1207093671 ) 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.
