yay i'm happy! date for c section!

I know some people wont want a c section but for those that know me recently i have my reasons.
After having my scan today was told baby is likely to be quite large so my consultnat who for last few weeks has been going on about waiting til 36 week scan relented.
i had a c section with LO because he was breech and had no choice,he ws also distressed.
A natural delivery for me is not possible due to the spd, constant monitoringd he drips i have to have due to being diabetic. also the risk of vbac is scar rupture and also a 20-40% failure rate.
So unless baby has other ideas he will be here on 5th December yayay yay! Hubbie also pleased as with his annual leave will get paternity leave and not have to work xmas or boxing day, double hooray!

  • Glad they agreed and gave you a date- at least you know where you are and can stop stressing about it !!
    My consultant agreed to try and start me off next Tues (28th Oct) and when I asked he confirmed if they can't I will have a cs and def won't be sent home to wait any longer- the relief was immense!
    5th Dec gives you time to get settled before xmas (and every year after).
  • doubt anyone would look down on you hun for choosing a c-sec, congrats so jealous you no exactly when your getting your babbee image
