minibee replied to topic Will I have to have another c-section?

First of all, I'm sorry for your loss. Because you have had a previous c-section, if you WANT another one, the choice is yours.

minibee replied to topic A myriad of complications and another c-section for future pregnancies

I have not been in this situation but I agree with your decision to see an OB first before you start trying to discuss the risks and see if it is a good time for you physically. I'm sorry for your ...

minibee replied to topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

Yeah. To be honest I doubt I'll get a chance to ask further questions to the OB about it. I see a different OB everytime I have a hospital appointment (my usual care is under a midwife) and I'm hav...

minibee replied to topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

For all of the ladies that mentioned getting steroids up until week 34, that is a different 'kettle of fish'. There is no doubt that at that stage, the benefits outweigh the risks. I'm just confuse...

I understand where you are coming from. I do not know about the other conditions you mentioned (pre-e etc..) with regards to whether they would give steroids for that. I just know the OB specifical...

minibee replied to topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

Ok, I should have clarified. With regard to my comment above, we are talking about 38 weekers. It is quite normal and safe to give them up until 34 weeks. The OB told me they do not give steroids t...

They do not give steroids to women with GD because it raises the blood sugar levels really high and can cause Hyperglycemia.

minibee replied to topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

Yes, LilyEveMum, I do think you are right and it's a case of the docs being worried about baby not being ready. For myself, I had several early scans and I am 100% sure about my dates so I am not ...

Also forgot to add (preggy brain lol) nobody actually knows the long term effects on babies who have the steroids this late in the pregnancy as it is a relatively new thing. There has been one or t...

minibee replied to topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

Thanks for all the responses. I should add I have had 3 previous c-sec's, 2 were elective. My youngest (who is 2 now) came at 38 weeks after my water broke and there was no mention of steroids then...

minibee started new topic Steroids for a 38 weeker?!

Wondering if anyone has heard of this or had experience with it? I am booked to have a c-section at 38+3 (due to medical reasons) and the OB at the hospital told me it is now standard procedure to ...

PS: I have an independant midwife (even though I'm high risk and see and OB at Waikato as well) and she will attend my c-section too.

Like everyone else has said, with a medical condition that will require you to have a c-section, you still have a lot of options about your care. You can still use a midwife and no midwife will pr...

Why do you want a c-section for your first child? I have had 3 (good) c-sections experiences (1 emergency and 2 electives) and I'll be having my 4th in a month or two. It is much easier on your bod...

minibee replied to topic Unplanned/ emergency...???

My 3rd c-section was booked in advance but since I went into labour before it my c-section was considered an "emergency". I wouldn't say it was a real emergency situation, but that is how the docs ...

minibee replied to topic C Section over Natural Birth????

It's not that it is "better" to have a repeat c-section, it is about risks. There is a small risk that you can suffer a uterine rupture, but seeing you have only had 1 previos c-section, the risk i...

minibee replied to topic Absolutely petrified.........

I have had 3 c-sec's and will be having my 4th in December. May I ask, how was your elective c-sec? I ask because my first was unplanned and I went through the whole labor and 2 1/2 hours of pushin...

Wow, that sucks, I'm sorry! I have had 3 c-sections but all were needed for me. I did feel disappointed after my first, but it faded in time. However, you will probably be a good candidate for a V...

I have a couple tips. Remember to breathe during the c-section! I subconsciously hold my breath sometimes during. Think about what you would like your support person to do. Do you want them to fo...

minibee replied to topic Do's and don'ts of C-Sections

I wore toe nail polish for my c-sections and it wasn't an issue. I also wore minimal make up (no foundation or skin make up, just a little [waterproof] mascara etc..) and it wasn't an issue. I thin...
