    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.
    Thanks! I'm confusing myself!
    That all makes sense.
    It's unlikely that the bub will go into distress in the early stages of labour right?

    Highly unlikely! Once you presented to hospital, they would be monitoring baby continuously anyway.

    How far along are you now? I know the post was not about turning breech babies but is there still time for your baby to turn? I had a footling breech who turned the night before my ECV was booked at just over 37 weeks.

    Due to the reasons I have to have a c-section there is also a good chance I could go into labour earlier than 40w.
    DH wants to have section at 38w in order to avoid early labour and potential infant distress.....
    Is there any reason why I can't have him/her at 38w?
    I asked my OB the exact same thing but because I was in so much pain by then ( I was measuring 41 weeks at 38 weeks because there was a lot of fluid in my belly) and he said just wait a week and a bit because every day your baby is in there their lungs are developing and getting stronger etc and if theyre taken out too early there "could" be complications if their lungs arent developed properly by then. Needless to say I had a little cry thinking I had to go through another week and a half of this pain 24/7. In the end DS was born at 39 weeks + 6 days. I had heaps of BH during that time and was worried about being in labor before my CS due date but thankfully I hadn't. I hope your finaly weeks being pregnant and birth goes smoothly

    With a septate uterus, there's probably a very good reason as to why bub is breech as there is physically no way to turn.....

    Exactly, the uterus will make it impossible to turn.

    Bubbles, this was my point. Wannawannabe just worded it a lot better than I did.
    Good luck and try to relax.

    This was what we have told to be prepared for. Had our first shot of steroids today, but there I no way to determine whether bub will end up having problems until she's out. One baby born at 36w can be fine while another baby born at 37w can have problems. It's just chance.

    Wanna are you a paed nurse/doctor?
    Why is it they say 37weeks is full term but in reality at 38/39wks there is still a chance the lungs may not be fully developed?
