Idk what to do

The last thing I want is a c-section but I have a feeling I'm going to need one :(

Ultrasound could not find my placenta at 19 weeks, and today at 33 weeks, still can't find it but predicts placenta previa and can't find my cervix

Are they doing your ultrasound transabdominal or transvaginal?

If your doctor sis rots placenta previa a csection is the safest option for you and your baby.

Why are you so against having one?

I had c sections both times and so did my mother before me... And countless others.
It'll be ok. Don't put so much thought into it. Just take it one minute at a time and focus on the ending - going home with your baby <3

I had placenta previa and didn't have to have a c-section.

They actually did both just trying to find it and failed😟

I have friends who are still going through the complications of their c-sections and their babies are now 4 and 5.

My only complication from doing it natural was sporadic periods and I prefer that to not being able to move around in the beginning since I have a 6 year old hyper kid

My sister in law just had a chance section today for the exact same reason. There was no other option. If the placenta is delivered 1st, the baby could die. I understand why you don't want one, but sometimes things like this happen and it is the only safe option.

It's way too early to tell, they are not even sure where it is yet.

There are tons of complications both ways. My friend ripped through her rectum and had to wear a diaper for weeks until she could have it surgically fixed.

I'm only 26 weeks and with both my pregnancies sections have been a possibility. With my oldest I toughed it out but was hospitalized for a week after. This time if I have to have a csection in going to have my tubes tied at the same time since I'm done having kids lol.

I know people who have had it hard and easy both ways. Just stay positive and look forward to holding your baby 😊

I didn't have one, but was close both times. I sort of freaked when he mentioned having one. He asked me why I was upset, and I said I never imaged having one and it was major surgery. His reply was, let's do what is best for you and the baby. I felt better about it. That is what matters most.

But my kids got their act straight at the last minute and I avoided them.

That's why they're worried. I'm 33 weeks now and he's very low
