Hi!  My name is Jane and I just joined this group tonight.  I have a DD who will be 5 in April and we just had our son on February 4th.  He will be 3 weeks old tomorrow.  He was scheduled for a repeat c-section on the 22nd but he decided to make an early appearance.  His name is Keegan.  This is him enjoying some snuggles with me!

I started having preterm labor at 34 weeks and they stopped it with terbutaline.  Then when I had him I went in at 36 weeks 5 days.  My contractions were 1-2 minutes apart and I dilated from 1-2 in about 45 minutes.  Keegan was breech and when the OB checked me he could feel him so they did my c-section then.  The hospital I delivered at doesn't do VBACs so they weren't taking any risks that he might have started coming out but I'm not sure it would have mattered.  He had been breech for several weeks at my appointments.  How far along were you when you had your c-section?

Well this was my 3rd. I was in the last week before schedualed csection. Friday was checked not dialated. Started having contractions that evening about 10min about constant no matter what i did (walk, relax) so we go in, i was fialated to 2cm within 10hrs from that morning. So they kept me 2 hours. Didnt prgress furthur an contractions stayed 10min apart. So got sent hone. All week long 10 min apart no matter what i did. Finally that following friday night/sat morning it was aweful. I woke hubby from a dead sleep in pain, still 10min apart but he brought me in saying they will not send me home again. If course ince i got out of bed they hit like 2min apart. I was 5cm dialated wgen they checked me and then i had a nurse on one side pushing fluids another nurse on other side pushing the stuff to stop labor and a nurse asking me questions thats already on file while im having a contractions and not hearing her ask

That sounds really hectic!  I know everything happened so fast for me too when the OB said he was doing my c-section.  No time to take it all in that my baby was coming almost 3 weeks early.

Oh wow that is crazy!  My DD was an emergency c-section.  I was in labor for 23.5 hours with her and she was almost a week late.  I had her at 40 weeks 5 days.  I was not expecting to have preterm labor and an early baby this time around!

The day i went in to be induced for DD is when i went into labor. She was head down a week prior at last check up. Flipped and was breach when i was in labor so she was an emergency csection..
