Thinking ahead C section or induction


Hi ladies me and dh are ttc baby number three, You may have seen from my other posts that have had 2 baby vaginally both with shoulder dystocia. So for my third baby my hospital said I can have an elective ceasarian. I've been researching a lot and its all pretty scary. Do you think early induction is a good idea instead of section, I would love to hear your opinions x x thanks in advance

Hi, It must be praying on your mind so much. How many weeks were you with your other 2 children when you delivered as they are unlikely to induce before 36/37 weeks.

Hi just wanted to say that I had an emergency non emergency c section at 37+4 weeks with my DD. She turned full breech 2 months before and I refused to have the DR try to turn her or anything (dr didn't really want to either due to problems this may cause) since I wasn't even sure I would be able to deliver her naturally and she was moving her butt to far into the birth canal and I was having regular irregular contractions(whatever that means). I know aloooot of women had bad experiences with sections but mine was perfectly fine. I was up walking around the next day (had her at almost 11 at night) with just a little stiffness and soreness. Never even had to take the pain pills with the exception of the 45 min car ride home lol. LOL...Anyway....You have to do what you feel is best for you and your baby, research and speak to your doctor and make the choice that feels best to you.

I know many people that have had elective c sections for various reasons and have found it much more relaxed knowing that they have an elective c section planned. You do have to remember it is major surgery and you will need time to recover i.e u cant drive for 6 weeks and should not carry anything heavier than a baby for the 3-4 weeks which can be very difficult when you have other children. It is something that you have to weight up but it is an option for you and it is an option because of your history. Needing the McRoberts procedure is a very scary thing. However this will all be discussed with you once you are pregnant. I would enjoy ttc first.
