I am (about 3 months) pregnant with my 4th baby and this will also be my fourth c-section. I will have the baby at Waikato hospital in Hamilton and I'm wondering if anyone could shed some light on when the docs usually book you in to have your 4th c-section. I know there is more risk of uterine rupture etc.. and since I always have good sized babies I'm wondering if I will be able to book in for 38 weeks as opposed to the normal 39 weeks. I also have quite a lot of scarring and on my last operation report it stated that I would need a consultant present during my next c-section. My last pregnancy I was booked in to have baby at 39 weeks but my water broke at 38 weeks and although we never know for sure, I'm thinking this one will want to come slightly earlier too!
Any info is appreciated, thanks! smile
