    Hopefully you will have either a vaginal birth *or* a c-section this time. Either one of these options should give you more immediate bonding time than being taken straight off to theatre post birth.

    Can I ask, did you have a general or an epi to remove the placenta?

    And, did they deliver the placenta through an incision near your pubic bone or vaginally? (I realise this probably sounds like a stupid question. I just have no idea)
    Didn't need general, just an epi. They did it vaginally though I think they cut me a bit as I had stitches.

    Definitely wanting that bonding time with baby. It may have had something to do with why we failed breast feeding.

    That's awesome. Make sure you ask how much is has moved as they will want it to be a minimum of 2cm away from the opening. Fingers X for you

    Yep!!! I think I'll be in for a short one this time. First birth was 6 hours from first contraction to birth!

    As we had same PP. Mine has moved 16.2mm away and OB was going to let me go natural that was until he read of the growth scan. Placenta is showing signs of separating and bubs growth has slowed to the point they put my due date back to 7/8 from 29/7, so getting baby sooner rather then later as an in case. C-sec on Monday night.

    Yes, this happened to me with my first baby. I had another scan at 30wks and the placenta had moved with the growing of my uterus and was no longer close to the cervix

    Interesting to read everyone's experiences, glad to hear you have had a good outcome Mamasupial!

    Although the sonographer at my 20w scan said my placenta is anterior but not very low, my GP wants me to have a 32w scan to confirm position. It's currently at 2.5cm, which is technically ok as long as it doesn't move closer to my cervix. She said it's just a precaution and she's quite confident we'll see it move further away. Hoping it doesn't move closer, but if it does I guess it's just one of those things and we'll cross that bridge if and when we get there.
