One reason for me as well is my scar from previously. I had a bikini cut on the outside and a classical on the inside.

I have a classical cut inside and the dr. said it's dangerous to go into labor.

I just had my son 2 weeks ago and he was born at 36w 5d. I have a classical cut inside and bikini cut outside from previous pregnancy so the plan was to never go past 38 weeks. We actually delivered because I had too much fluid.

I'm delivering at 36 weeks.I switched to this peri at 20 weeks and this was the plan from the first day.The main reason was my scar (on the uterus)from the previous c-section.


Was it classical cut inside and out? That's what I have and I think that played a part too b/c they said it was unsafe to have contractions with that kind of scar...

So far for me there aren't too many problems. My BP is raising a little bit around 115-130/78-85. But my doctor isn't too concerned since that was my BP in the beginning. Then it went down and now its back up. No protein in my dip so far. And I haven't done a 24-hr catch since I was 8 weeks. I am 28 weeks 2 days now.

Even before anything started happening, they said no more than 37 weeks.

Starting to look like that for me but not for PE issues.... breech and low fluid issues instead..... although I know low fluid is linked to PE.... before all this new drama, I was told induction between 38-39 weeks barring other issues.

Ack. I am REALLY scared of the C-section.

With DD My Ob decided around 35 weeks that we would go ahead and schedule the c section for about 36+ because my BP's were unstable. I was bp meds since about 21 weeks. However in in those last couple of weeks my bp dropped twice to like 80/50, and then would be 170/110... So delivery was not based on lab work at all. My labs were all basically good, until the morning of delivery my labs preceeding c section showed elevated liver enzymes. I never had 300+ protein in a 24 hour urine.

Oh but no lung check, last time or this time... its just a matter of when the baby needs to be delivered for both our sakes.


Can I ask you what your protein/platelet/liver functions were when delivery was decided? I can't seem to get a straight answer on that. My protein is OVER 300 now, platelets dropping, liver fine......I just can't decide what will deliver me.......
