My DD was an elective CS at 39 weeks on the dot and she was 9lb 3oz, so a bigger bubba. I don't believe I was in any danger of going into labour though, I had no indicators it was getting close at all.
This bubba was measuring 7 weeks ahead at 30 weeks.
Is this your first baby?
Chances are if you went into labour you'd start off with contractions every 20-30 minutes and they'd slowly increase. That's when you go into hospital and say I'm in early labour and they do the caesar then.
I suppose I'm getting it confused with the doctor that told me if I tried first to have bub naturally and failed and then required a c-section it would be distressing for bub.
If i go into labour but go straight to c-section without trying to push him or her out first all should be ok.
So much to wrap my head around, first baby- planned no drug natural delivery and now trying to get my head around the complete opposite!
