  • I would say it depends on why you are having a c-section.

    Is it because the birth canal is to small?

    Or something else?

  • More than likely they will just take you in for a c-section when you go into labor instead of sticking to the schedule.

  • They'd prep you asap for an emergency c-section.

  • I believe it means that you'll probably have the surgery sooner.

  • It depends on the reason for the c section,. if you go into labor naturally prior to your c section and your c section was a matter of convenience for you or the doc,. they'll allow the labor to progress naturally - and be glad bc thats the way its suppose to go. I've had six vaginally and one c section and would take a three day labor to deliver vaginally any day over a perfect c section.

  • no your far enough along that the baby will be fine so if you go into labor get to the hospital ASAP and be sure they know you were schedualed for a c-sec but the baby had other plans lol good luck and congratz!
