C-section ? Riley's Mommy♥ 1 child; Wartburg, Tennessee 234 posts
26th Mar '12

Okay so my doctor told me i might have to have a c section because my placenta is low & shes gonna check me again at 30 weeks to see if its still low. I know doctors are different but my question is if i do happen to have to have one(which i hope i dont!)about when do they schedule those? like how long before your due date? 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks? Just curious.

My doctor scheduled me for a c section on my due date. He does not believe in delivering early unless absolutely needed. I ended up going into labor like 3 weeks early.

your situations is different then many womens though also. I was to my due date because my son was breech. There was no huge reason to rush. C sections are not that bad. Now that you know ahead of time you will be able to plan. I found out 2 days before my c section. I had no clue what to expect. I would recommend talking to your dr about the process just so you are not shocked going in. Im a surgery virgin so for me it was terrifying not knowing anything.

At 36 weeks it is ok to deliver. My son was born at 37 weeks and weighed 8lbs 7oz and was completely healthy. However, if you are uncomfortable talk to your dr. Maybe the can deliver around 37 or 38 weeks. I would just keep asking questions. I do not think your dr will take the baby to early.

I'm in the same boat :( Low lying placenta at 28 weeks, re checking at 32 weeks. I'm petrified.
