    Default Need Advice

    So I am currently 35 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child, and have been getting really bad pain along my old csection scar.
    I have had 2 previous cesareans, and during my last one at 38 weeks my old Ob said that i shouldn't have anymore children as my uterus was so thin, and that if i DID have more than I would need a csection done 4-6 weeks early.
    This pain I'm getting I have had constantly for just over a week, and it's getting worse to the point where I'm lucky if i get 3-4hrs sleep a day as i am in so much pain. It's also the same pain that i was getting last time, when my old ob moved my section from 39+4 to 38weeks and said good thing we did, it's so thin down there, no wonder you are were in so much pain. M new ob however doesn't seem to think it's a huge concern, and has booked my section for 39weeks!! I have this horrible feeling that something isn't right, and I don't know what to do?

    Listen to your intuition and get a second opinion or a third if you have to. If they all agree with each other then maybe they are right but doctors can make mistakes too and if you are feeling that something isnt right then its worth following up, if only for your peace of mind.

    I agree with Tildy if your gut is telling you there's something wrong its always good to follow up on it as no one has ever said i wish i hadn't followed my gut!!

    I hope all is well though and i have my fingers crossed for you

    I agree - follow your intuition. Given your history, and how bad you say the pain is (and your previous obs omments about it) I would call your hospital, tell them you're in bad pain and ask if you should come in. If still noone listens to you, I'd go to emergency.

    If your old ob was private, I would also call them, explain your concerns and ask for your old file (including the comments about csection 4-6 weeks early) to be sent to your new ob.

    Good luck. I'm a bit worried for you.
