    Default Uterine Rupture - who's had one?

    Firstly, wasn't sure where to put this, so apologies Mods if it's it the wrong spot.

    Has anyone else had a uterine rupture?

    We are waiting on an appointment to see a specialist to see what he says about us TTC #3, but I'm interested to hear 'real life' stories...

    ...Anyone?

    ETA: title should say, who's had one, not HOW'S had one hahaha, serves me right for trying to do 3 things at once

    Hi!

    I am interesdted to hear what your OB says about TTC.

    I had a Uterine Rupture 19 months ago and have just started TTC and was never told when I can or cant start again. To be honest I never even thought about it. All I know is next time I will need a planned C-sec so I cant go over due like I did last time.

    Will be interested to see what others say too!

    Fixed!

    And I've just popped it over into the 'Pregnancy & Birth General Chat' section.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks SammiAnn!

    Emiliji - thanks so much for your reply!! What happened during your birth? (if you don't mind sharing that is... please ignore if you would rather not). Is it bad that I'm excited to talk to someone else this has happened to??? lol.

    The thing is, the 2 OB's that I saw in the regional hospital after DD2's birth both said to wait 1-2 years before TTC and then just to book in for an elective csect at 38 weeks. It was only after I got home and started reading on dr google, that I started to get worried that it may not be safe. I read a lot of stories (mainly in the US) where people had been cautioned against TTC. This made me re-think things (perhaps unnecessarily I'll admit).

    I'm now in a major city and have spoken to my GP about it, and he suggested requested the birth records and then taking them to see a specialist. So this is what we will be doing. I'm just waiting on the records to come through now.

    OMG! My DH just said it wasn't a uterine rupture but a placental abruption. Is that the same thing? If it is then I am excited to talk to someone bout it too! Lol

    I believe that is actually something different, I'm afraid I have no idea about the ramifications of placental abruption on subsequent pregnancies.

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck though. And thanks so much for replying anyway!!

    Good luck!

    Subscribing because I'm interested in this topic.

    OurLittleBlessing - did your rupture occur because you attempted a VBAC or was is a spontaneous rupture? Like you wrote to another poster, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable doing so.

    I'm hoping for a VBAC in July but OB keeps bringing up the risk or uterine rupture.

    I googled uterine abruption and it comes up as placental abruption. So my placenta started coming away from my uterus while I was pregnant and had a major blood loss. That's the short story lol, can u please explain what happened to you?

    Hi MillyB - I'm very happy to talk about it, ask me anything you like. Yes, it was during an attempted VBAC. I was done 'bar the shouting' so to speak. DD was crowning when I felt the most intense pain in my scar and my contractions stopped. Being a regional area and the middle of the night, it took 1 hour and 45 mintues to open the threatre. As soon as possible I was given a GA, my DD was born 10 minutes after that with APGARS of 6 and then 10. She handled it BRILLIANTLY.

    Do I regret my decision to VBAC? No, not at all. I made an informed decison based on risk vs. benefit, and I would still make the same decision. Rupture is a very real risk, but also very rare.

    I will however, elect for a c-section *if* there is a next time, given that I have already had a rupture.

    ETA: the staff ummed and ahhed about whether to use vaccuum extraction, but a c-section was decided on because of the risk of high level bleeding being so high. As it was I lost 4 ltrs of blood.
