    I definitely don't want a c section. I will have some help from my mum to look after my toddler and the house though so that will be nice.

    I haven't had any bleeds at all though last time my placenta stuck damn well and I ended in theatre for removal with suspected accreta. My mum actually had issues with placenta not coming away with both of her births too.

    I was driving well before 6 weeks with the permission of my obgyn. It all depends on your pain level/recovery and whether you can safely drive a car in view of pain etc

    But OP, I have your placenta moves so that you can have a vaginal birth.
    That gives me hope. I was not up after my VB til the next day. How long does the catheter stay in? I don't drive anyway so that's not an issue. It's just major surgery that scares me as I have had major abdo surgery in the past (I sport a 30cm long scar from my bellybutton to my side). Also worried I won't get bonding time with my baby as I missed out on spending hours with my daughter in hospital after she was born.

    I had an emergency c-section due to severe preeclampsia so bit different but the recovery itself was much easier than I anticipated. I took all the pain relief offered for a week or so but was driving within 3 weeks and vacuumed the house at 4 weeks post. My ob said there are no fixed timelines about when you can do anything it's about how you feel and if things start to hurt then ease off. Yes it does feel tender for a while after but it wasn't enough to restrict me at all. Re bonding they should give bub straight to you while they stitch you up and bub will stay with you in recovery too. I know it's not ideal but it can be straightforward and I hope if you have to have a c-sect it's nice and easy.

    Mine was on my cervix until 18 weeks at anatomy had moved to 0.8cm from cervix

    By 34 weeks it was 2.6cm away so cleared for vaginal birth by 6mm

    I had a posterior placenta so was slow to migrate

    30cm scar? Ouch, that is big. I think one of the secrets though is to keep on top of pain management by making sure that you don't miss a scheduled dose at all, for the first week or two post c-section. With my first born I had to wait a day or two to hold him as he was born @ 33 weeks and was in SCN.
    With my full term DD I was able to have her lying on my chest from the moment she was born. She had a few Daddy cuddles in that time too but that was good for all of us.
    Hmm mine was in much longer but maybe that's because it was put in after birth.

    Not rude

    My placenta wouldn't come out at all. I had the injection, they tried tugging it etc. I was screaming in pain and they were worried about a major bleed so took me to theatre and gave me an EPI.

    Another G4PP here found at 18week scan (which I was having for urinary issues not the 20wk!). Had internittent bleeding but nothing major. Did not move enough for VB so C-section it was. Hope it moves for you - goodluck!
