    well went to the consultant today expecting a sweep and stretch and a plan for the coming week , but instead ive come away with a date (wednesday morning ) for a c section.
    apparantly due to past section and size of the baby ive got only a 30-50% chance of successfully delivering the baba myself .so given the chance that if i insisted on trying labour first i would probably end up having to have an emergency section again , something i really dont think id handle too well , so between us all weve decided on the planned section , feeling numb i have to say but starting to get excited about seeing my boy in 2 days .

    Honestly a my planned section was so much calmer and nicer than my emergency one. You can ask for the screen to be lowed as baby is pulled out and have skin to skin straight away. I really enjoyed mine this time around!

    Hope it all goes well for you! Good luck! x

    Ooooh thats exciting, just 2 days and you get to meet your little one ;) My SIL attempted a vbac on weds, was induced with the gel on her due date but the same thing happened as her 1st really slow to dilate then got stuck at 7cms, had an emergency section on fri night:(. Went to see them yesterday and she really wishes she had an elective as another emergency section was just what she was dreading. So I really think you have made the right choice for you, all the best and look forward to reading your 'arrival' post;)
