I will be having a scheduled c section with this baby. My last pregnancy ended in an emergency c section and because of the way my uterus and pelvis are, I cannot have natural child births.

Anyone else having a scheduled c or a second c section? I'm kinda nervous!!

This is pretty much my problem. With my first daughter, she failed her biophysical profile and they thought she was braindead so I had to have an emergency c section. Luckily, she was fine but they said I would have never been able to pass her through. I am EXTREMELY short waisted, and I'm only 5'1".

I've talked to my doctor this time around and he said definitely a c section with this one, based on what he saw with the last one. Poor Carly was 38 weeks and 8 lbs 3 oz and absolutely CRAMMED into my abdomen!

C sections really aren't that bad, I promise! I was able to go home a day early from the hospital, and the biggest thing is having as much help as you can get so that you can rest!

They are making me have one b/c they will not do a VBAC. My first was breech, and the c/s was no fun at all. I'm completely dreading this one.

I will most likely be having one since i'm having twins.I've only had one emergency c-section and 3 Vbacs.I would love another Vbac but with identical twins i heard it was risky so my best bet is a c-section.

I am *supposed* to. I had 7 vaginal births and then my 8th was breech when my water broke at 35 weeks. I had to have a c/s with her. We decided not to go with a vbac with my 9th but would have needed another c/s anyway because she was also breech when labpor started at 36 weeks. So, it would have been scheduled but she came early.

If, by some miracle, (which I would love) I make it to 39 weeks, this one will be a scheduled c/s. But, the last two and the one before all came at 35-36 weeks so we kind of have to plan on rushing to the hospital to have one again vs. being scheduled.

I found my 2nd c/s to be much easier as far as being nervous, pain, recovery, etc. because I had been through it before. I still experienced all of that stuff but since I had been through it before I was able to be a bit more calm about it.

I am having a scheduled csection also around 38 to 39 weeks. I am nervous as well... i guess its normal, but thinking bout csection recovery n my experience with child birth, its a csection hands down.

PS... VBacs are apparently against the law in NJ which is bullsh** but whatever

I'll be having my 3rd c/section. I can tell you, the 2nd time is much easier for recovery. I didn't take any pain meds after the first day and was doing great.
I had a spinal with my first, emergency c/section because of heart decels. She was 9lbs 12.8oz and 21.5 inches long. I'm 5 foot and weighed 125 when I had her! She was wedged up under my ribs, almost breaking them. They did a c/section and still had to use the vaccum to get her out because she was so stuck in there.
2nd was scheduled, spinal didn't take and I had to be knocked out. SCARED THE SH*T out of me, then had spinal headaches. Oh so NOT fun. But like I said, recovery was easier.
This time will be scheduled and I'm opting out of the spinal and just going with being put under again. You can only do that if you have previous issues with anestesia (sp).

I'll be having a scheduled c-section. I was in labor with my son for 18 hours (med free! ) and then finally he just wasn't coming down after my water had been broken for a long time. They didn't want to risk more infection so I had a c-section. And my dr will not do a VBAC so c-section it is. Im also nervous about the recovery. My incision got infected the first time, and i also had bronchitis at the time....so the recovery with my son was BRUTAL. Im hoping this time around will go smoother.

I was close to having a c-section with Adriana.. My labor was 32 hours (not med free lol) and my water decided to brake 30 minutes before my Dr was going to have me go under the knife..

I have a chance I'll have a c-section with my next baby because more then likely I'll have gestational diabetes again.. I don't make big babies, so I'll think I may be able to have a normal birth.. I just pray I have a shorter labor.. lol
