Going into Labor before Scheduled C-Section

Postby Mrs.Barajas » Tue Jul 28, 2015 4:43 pm

I am 33 weeks, and baby is still breech. He has been the entire time, and my OB thinks it is fairly unlikely that he will turn. Assuming he doesn't, she will probably schedule a C-section for 39 weeks. To complicate things, I have a short cervix, and my OB also thinks I may not make it to 39 weeks. I'm currently on bedrest and hoping to get to 35 or 36 weeks at least. Has anyone gone into labor before her scheduled C-section date? If so, how long were you in labor before they did the C-section? Did you go to L&D immediately when you started having contractions, and did they give you an epidural? I am worried that I will go into labor before 39 weeks, and if I know I'm going to end up with a C-section anyway, I really don't want to go through hours of contractions and labor for nothing. Any input and experiences would be appreciated! 8O
