36wks Emerg CS

Claire2009 Thu 11-Jun-09 23:09:05

Mintyy, What's a crash cs? is that an emerg?

paisleyleaf Thu 11-Jun-09 23:09:31

2 weeks before due date (elective)

benfmsmum Thu 11-Jun-09 23:11:00

38+ a few hours - emergency cs

Mintyy Thu 11-Jun-09 23:11:05

Crash c/s = baby in severe trauma so mum has to have general anaesthetic because not enough time for an epidural or spinal block.

Emergency section with first as labour was going badly. Elective cs for number 2 as was only 16 months after No.1. Booked for the week before due date but went into labour 3 days before. Should have been booked for 2 weeks before due date but that would have been New Year's Eve and consultant was going to be on holiday...hmm

41weeks crash/emcs

39weeks elcs

38weeks unplanned, not a crash like DS, but I guess it would be termed emcs.

41+ emergency cs
38+6 elective cs ( sooo much better!!)

PinkyMinxy Thu 11-Jun-09 23:15:25

Totally agree. Wish I'd had an elcs this last time, instead of being in labour and not knowing what to do for the best.

Claire2009 Thu 11-Jun-09 23:16:08

Tokentotty, 14mo between 1 & 2 here, hence why they wouldn't allow me to go any 'later' ..just wish it would've been spoke about more, I was told all the way through I'd be ok to try for natural this time, then told 3days before cs booked I was having that hmm

Mintyy, Thanks I didn't realise it was called crash, my friend had one, severe p/e and a sudden g/a cs.

tokentotty Thu 11-Jun-09 23:22:28

Claire2009, I was told right from the off that 'they' (medical powers that be) don't encourage natural delivery after CS without a 2 yr gap. Am still quite annoyed that they left my elective until only a week before due date, leaving me far more open to spontaneous labour which was exactly what happened forcing another emergency CS.

1st-41 weeks-crash cs
2nd-37 weeks planned but kept going into early labour
3rd-37 weeks planned but as above kept going into early labour so was moved forward.

29 weeks emergency section.

Claire2009 Thu 11-Jun-09 23:39:40

Totty, Both births were in France, I think they liked to tell me things that weren't true hmm Ah well, both got her safe! That's the main thing grin
Your Dc's are gorgeous!

40+10 Emerg c-sec (induced 3 times in labour for 20 hours then had to have emerg c-sec due to him being in distress with cord wrapped around his neck)

40+5 Elective c-sec (choose that instead of being induced again as it was the worst thing to happen to me ever)

36wks Emerg c-sec (due to eclampsia)

Am currently 25wks pregnant and have a c-sec planned for 39wks although that date might change if my blood pressure rises again

Claire, moments of gorgeousness and No.2 has only narrowly avoided the workhouse thanks to some words of wisdom from TYG (Largeginandtonic will appreciate the wisdom of this wonderful woman!!)

l39 Fri 12-Jun-09 04:58:22

37 + 3 (Induced with twins, twin1 born vaginally, twin2 emergency section under general anaesthetic)

theselegswermad Sun 14-Jun-09 03:09:55

35+2 Emerg c-section ( servere Pre-cla/Help)
37+6 Elective section (pre-clampsia)

ilovesprouts Sun 14-Jun-09 03:20:33

30 weeks em cs due to really bad pre-clamp and 40+ 12 days due to failed induction em cs

My waters broke 12 days early with both my two. ds was born that day (it was termed an emergency section, but all very civilised, with no labour). With dd I was hoping for a VBAC so they left it until three days later in the hope of contractions and then induced when none materialised (argh, why oh why did I say I wanted to do that) followed by emergency c-section. I also had a sixteen month gap, but the consultant was still ready to give it a try (the senior midwife was very dubious when they hooked me up though).
