    Default Second C-section query...

    Hi ladies, I just had my Morphology scan on Friday and all was looking good with our little man (phew! ). They booked me in for a 32 week scan as my placenta is still looking to be a little low but not dangerously so. I ended up having an emergency c-section with my dd a my waters had been broken for too long and I never dilated more that 1.5/2cm's even with the syntocin (sp?) drip turned up as far as it goes. Anyway, after thinking it over, I've chosen to go for an elective c-section this time so I was thinking a low placenta doesn't matter all that much (unless it was over my cervix and causing lots of bleeding I guess??!)....
    BUT, my placenta seems to be over my c-section scar at the moment.....has anyone had this? Can it be dangerous as in restricting blood flow to bub or anything? What happens if it stays there.....can my Ob still cut into the same scar and into the placenta and quickly get bub out safely with out me bleeding like crazy??

    Just a few things I was thinking about at about oh....2:30am last night! :-/

    No idea sorry honey. I've had three caesars but as far as I know, never had that problem. I hope someone can help you.

    With my first c-section I had a very different complication, but they ended up doing it transverse externally (normal position) but classically internally on the uterus. So whilst I can't comment on what they might do in your specific situation, I just wanted to share that there's a few different incision styles that are still discreet externally.
    Good luck

    I don't know a lot about this particular topic (I've had 2 straight forward sections), but I do know they can make the incision in different places. I'd definitely discuss all this with your OB and she what s/he says. I've got a similar concern with a pocket of fluid next to old scar so I want to ask how he's going to deal with this.
