I have a section booked on Monday (weird section last time, leaving me with a high chance of scar rupture) but what if I go into labour before then? I know they would bring the section forward, but would I have to be dilated a certain amount or something before they would do it? Just a bit worried that I would have to do a few hours of labour for no reason, with all the worry of the scar rupturing on top.
They'll do it as soon as possible. I rang the labour ward at 11pm as my waters had broken and I was having irregular contractions. They said to come straight in (I was due in the following morning for a section anyway) DD was born at 2.50am. Would have been sooner but someone else was already in theatre.
Lissy, you could be someone else I know - she's currently waiting for a section because of spd! She's also worried about going into labour before the date. Yes as noddy said, they'll have you in straight away.
hi lissy , i was scheduled for a second c-section on dd but she arrived 4 weeks early . my waters broke at 2am we went straight to the hospital where they monitored me to see if the labour might stop but no way dd wanted out so they left me for 7.5 hours then took me into theatre . good luck x
