Well of course, you can add me to the group too!

Children/s name/s & birthdate/s: Max Joseph Hatton 28/03/2010
EDD: 15/04/2010
Number of elective Caesareans: 0
Number of emergency Caesareans: 1
Number of vaginal births: 0

I was induced at 37+1 due to mild pre-eclampsia and raising uric acid levels, and was already 1cm dilated. 24 hours later the insert had made no difference but they could pop my waters due to my dilation. 8 hours after they were popped it was decided I had to have an emergency section due to Max's heart rate dropping with each contraction and only 3-4cm dilated.
I believe Max's heartrate dropped because of a certain MW who took mine off her break and everything suddenly turned into a panic because of her, and that's when Max's heartrate started to alter. Cowbag.

Currently pregnant with #2 and if he arrives on time (november 16th) there will be 19.5 months difference between the two. My mum had a successful VBAC with a 24 month gap so am hoping I'll be as lucky. Goes to say therefore I will be attempting VBAC, but have a sneaky suspicion-
a) I'll get PET again and need a section or
b) I'll have a breech baby that won't turn and need a section

All seems so long ago that we had our Sections!!

How are your scars looking? I've never had any problems with mine but i still find its quite red, it is white at the edges but the middle bit is still very visible. I've known a few people on here to say you can barely see theirs

I'm still a bit funny about touching my scar especially when i comes to doing my bikini line

Mine is more pink than red. I forgot to add above that mine took 13 weeks to heal. Kind of a lie really, it was just one small part of it which just kept bleeding and it eventually formed a skin tag. I had the tag cauterised and then there was no problem at all with it.

I got up after 12 hours and had a shower and had no pain at all from my scar. I too kept up the meds for a while as I was scared I'd get pain if I stopped them. The worst bit was the iron tablets making me constipated tbh.

Oh and I'm still very numb above my scar, more in the central section. I never expected the feeling to return. My mums hasn't and that was nearly 31 years ago

My scar looks almost skin coloured now. DH accidentally scratched it the other night and it hurt so I've regained most of the feeling too. Was quite strange feeling the bottom of my belly and getting no sensation.

I leaked clear fluid from my wound after a few days of my c-section and had no idea what it was. First happened at night time when I was really stressing about Ellie not having weed in 24 hours and I figured I'd wet myself with the anxiety. It happened again though a few days later and I was worried. But it turns out it's a healing fluid. My midwife recommended putting a sanitary towel in my knickers across my wound until it stopped. Just something I was never told about on leaving hospital etc, so it freaked me out when it happened!

Can I join aswell

Children/s name/s & birthdate/s: Olivia Rose 03/09/2010
EDD: 09/09/2010
Number of elective Caesareans: 0
Number of emergency Caesareans: 1
Number of vaginal births: 0

Due to a lack of movement over a 10 day period I was booked in for an induction on the 2nd Sept. All tablets failed and at 16:45pm on 03/09 the 'orrible Dr broke my waters that were Meconium Grade 3. I was rushed down to theatre and my daughter arrived at 17:45pm. I was stapled instead of stitched and my wound burst open the whole length across 2 days later. I then spent 8 weeks having to have an open wound packed daily with seaweed and my scar is awful. BUT I do not care - It took me 8 years to get my daughter and they could of cut me from top to bottom and I wouldnt of minded as long as I had her !!! Despite my horrific after experience I think that I will opt for a csec again. Being on the plus size I would hate to try and give birth naturally, fail and then end up with a csec anyway. I took pics the whole way through my recovery as wanted to complain at the time but I dont care now. I still get major pain in my scar if I lean on it and it hurts when its cold !!

to everybody here !!
