    First at 39 weeks. Elective csection. 39 weeks because thats when my hospital did electives

    Second at 38 weeks. Elective also. Had been booked for 39 weeks but was brought forward due to movement issues. Had steroid injections but bub still had respuratory distress needing time in humidicrib. However of 4 kids only 1 didnt have respiratory distress at birth so I think its just my kids:/

    Sent from my SM-G900I using The Bub Hub mobile app

    Both at 38 weeks 4 days. First was an emergency due to a true knot in the cord, was induced (pregnancy induced hypertension) ds went into distress. Second was elective (moved to the country 2 days before having dd), new hospital wasn't happy with my blood pressure (pregnancy induced hypertension again) and wouldn't induce so c-section it was.

    Is 38 weeks considered too early unless there is a complication?

    I know with my hospital that they won't do them until 39 weeks unless there are complications that require it earlier. When they were booking mine they went to book it for the Monday but realised I wasn't 39 weeks until the Wednesday so they booked it for the Wed. I'm guessing Its policy maybe.

    With my second child I had an planned c/section at 38+2. I had placenta previa, but was not in any immediate danger (i.e. no bleeding). They said that they ordinarily would not do a c/section this early, but my first had been 10 days early and there was a haemorrhage risk if I went into labour given the position of the placenta. They told me that they don't normally do electives before 39 weeks as prior to this time the chances of the baby having breathing difficulties and complications increases.

    40+1. I was induced at 40, due to gestational diabetes, but I got to 7cm dilated, and then she turned posterior and got stuck.
