    It's not necessarily going to, you are right, I could go into labour today!
    I suppose it's just us worrying now that we know it could happen that we want to prepare.
    DH is now paranoid that something might happen to the LO and is trying at all costs to avoid it.

    I've had two midwives reviews and two doctors reviews and all have said pushing out a large breech posterior bubba with my uterus shape is a risk.
    That's why they are all suggesting c-section.

    Thanks Carleena. Mine is currently measuring in two weeks bigger! In wonder if that makes any difference to him/her lung state?

For this reason alone I would prefer a bikes ceaser to an 'emergency' one.
    This has never happened to me and all mine were classed as emergency due to going into labor before booked date.

    My DS was still 7lb 12 at what they think was 37 weeks. I think we were just lucky he didn't have any issues. All the docs and midwives I saw suggested waiting as long as possible in case bub wasn't quite ready. We actually would have preferred an earlier date to move it away from Xmas (I had my c section Xmas eve) but I'm now really glad we waited.

    Yes I wasn't suggesting you birth naturally, just that going into labour shouldn't be dangerous if you did. With my CS booked for 39+5 it's something I've considered and I'm fine with (even though my birth partner lives 3 hours away!!).

    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.

    No one is saying if you went into labour you would have to a vaginal birth.

    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.

    Not really. The lungs is based on their gestation. I've looked after a baby that was born at 33 weeks and was 4kg. Bub was unfortunately very sick.

    Ahh right, got it.
    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!
