I thought it would be nice to find out how many mums were awaiting there c-section and if yet what date it was scheduled for so that we could all keep updated with these mums for all the support that they need.
Here's a breif rundown of my story... my last pregnancy was picture perfect. I was having a little boy, couldnt have been more excited. I exercised daily, ate right, got my life in order, etc... then, unexpectedly my water broke at exactly 26 weeks. I went to L& D... apparently I was 2cm dilated and baby was presenting footling breech. He had to come out. So I had an emergency C... because of his positionong, I had a 'classic' incision, which is up and down instead of lower transverse (which, BTW is a clear indicator for C-section births in the future.. no exceptions ). Apparently, I had been dilated and leaking fluid for some time, which I thought was just normal discharge. B/c of this, my son developed an infection which casued a slew of other problems as well, including intercranial hemorrhaging. He died the next day... had he lived he would have had lifelong problems, never eaten on his own...
I got pregnant 3 months later and my OB referred me to a Perinatologist. They gave me the option of a cervical cerclage at 12 weeks to keep the cervix from dialting prematurely. Generally IC occurs btwn 18-24 weeks, and the docs werent even sure thats what I had, but I did it anyways, to be safe. Also, I have gotten progesterone by injection, weekly since 16weeks. This it to prevent PTL..
Sooooooooooooooooo... I had been anticipating a pretty straightforward scheduled c-section around Oct 17 - my EDD is 10/24. However in the past 2 weeks both teams of docs have thrown a bunch of stuff at me. They want to take the cerclage out at 26 weeks - I say no problem. Then after the fact they tell me they want to do an amnio to check his lung maturity the day before the removal I'm like "ummmmm... no.." I mean, whats the point at 37 weeks... more discomfort for me, is all I can see. So I was upset with that - come to find out this is not mandatory, so I'mnot gonna do it. They want me to come in on that day anyways, just in case, to discuss If I even want the cerclage out that day. I would like to wait another week, which would put us at 10/3..
Now here's the kicker... my regular OB, whom I see on alternating weeks from the peri, said they will probably take the stitch out and then do the c-section the next day I'm like "WHAT?!?!" I mean, I can't start laboring on my own... because of the previous incision, I could rupture.. the risk is much more increased with classic incisions. I understand this. But good greif.... isnt that the whole point of the scheduled c-section... that its' SCHEDULED!!!
So he could be here as soon as 10/3, which I am totally not prepared for. The nursery is incomplete. Hell, my baby shower isnt even until 9/30 and there will be heck to pay if I miss that... I have to wrap things up at work and get my short-term disability worked out... ugh..
Sorry things aren't going as planned. I'm so glad you've made it this far, though! Hang in there, girly! You know all too well that a little early is better than nothing at all. I'm excited for you! Hope the section goes well! Which type of incision are they doing this time... do you know?

I'm having mine on Tues, Oct 17 @12:30. I was really hoping to go on the 10th, my OB only operates on Tuesdays, my Due date by last period is Oct 25 but all my ultrasounds put me at around Oct 15 so I was hoping he'd go for the 10th as he delivered my second one about 1 and a 1/2 weeks early, but he said he wants to go between the 2 due dates so we're going for the 17th. My second DD's birthday is on the 19th which is why I wanted to go on the 10th just to have a week between and I really didn't want it booked for an afternoon appt, my last one was for first thing in the morning and it was great I got up and went, now I'm just gonna be sitting here all morning starving and waiting anxiously!! Oh well, at least i have a date to look forward too!!
I had 2 c-section before I had a transverse incision (left to right)but this time I am having a surgery (removal of bowel) with a c-section on September 29 at 11:15 and this time the incision will be a classic incision, which is up and down instead of lower transverse. They discover I have a lymphoma when I was 13 weeks pregnant
