    I don't know how things stand now days, but my Mum had her c-sec and it was down the center of the stomach and then off to the left or right as well, she went on to have 3 vbac after this. There was a 7yr gap from that c-sec delivery to her vbac but she never had any probs through any of ehr 3 PG or Births.

    Hope this is of some help and maybe encouragement that it can be done even with the old cut

    Hi didispunk,

    I think the only way they can try to induce you is to use a foley catheter. Basically they blow the balloon up just inside the cervix to put pressure on it to dilate and hopefully start producing the natural prostaglandins to start labour. You would probably have to discuss this with your care provider as I'd say not all would normally give this option. It's highly unlikely they would induce you with a syntocinon IV or the prostaglandin gel as this would greatly increase the risks of uterine rupture. Or you could always try some alternate therapies like acupuncture or reflexology to try and move things along. I know that Bluedaisy had reflexology in order to not go too far post dates with her second preg and it seemed to work for her. I tried acupuncture and it didn't help me go into labour (I think because i was trying to bring it on at 37-38 weeks as I knew I was up for a caesar otherwise). It did however, work wonders for my cankles and i think it helped a little with my BP also.
    Fingers crossed you wont go over anyway

    i had VERY severe pre-eclamsia with my first pregnancy i was induced and began having fits almost had a stroke because of it and it ended in an emergency ceaser, he is 6 now. my 7 month old has a different father and i had no pre-eclamsia at all!! (another ceaser) im now preg with number 3 and no sign of pre-eclamsia this time either *fingers crossed it stays that way*

    my doctors told me there was no way to say if i would get it again, having it once doesnt raise your chances of getting it again at all, your chances remain the same as anyone else...

    good luck!!

    My hubby and i have decided to take it one day at a time. If it happens i know the precautions and if it doesn't happen that would be excellent. Thankyou all so much for your replies, they did give me ease of mind. It's a case of letting nature take it's course lol...

    So far is so good, there are no signs of it, my blood pressure is perfect, so fingers crossed it will still that way.

    I've had 4 pregnancies and in the other 3 I've developed PE and have been booked in each pregnancy to have an induction. I have a new husband, that has fathered #3 and this pregnancy. I think they've figured out that it's not so much the new partner as it is the age of the mother as there's usually a god sized gap between babies. But that doesn't really explain why Mums who get it with babies with the same fathers have it recurr either.There may also be underlying issues for the mother. I'm not sure what causes mine though. I guess they call it the mysterious disease for a reason!

    I've just started developing hypertension, I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't develop into PE again. I'll also keep my fingers crossed for you

    I have been watching out for the warning signs of preclampsia like fluid around the ankles etc. I am still working at the moment, my next visit to melbourne woman's hospital will determine whether or not there are any signs of the pre-clampsia starting.

    Now i have an excuse to eat more chocolate lol... love chocolate and i have been craving it somthing shocking, but i haven't been to over indulging in it either.

    Hi wombles
    I didnt have csection for same reasons however didend up with repeat c section 2nd time afer wanting a vaginal birth.
    I know it can be disappointing but at the end of the day you just want your baby and yourself healthy and safe.
    I am sure once you hold bubs the way they were born wont matter, I know it didnt with me.
    take care

    I could have written this post myself. I had bad pre-eclampsia with DS and i am going for an appointment with a specialist in a week to see how i will give birth. I am thinking i will be the same as you. I dont think you can do anything about P-E. Im sorry you cant try for a natural, but i feel for you. But i was scared to go thru hours and hours of labor to only have another emergency ceaser. My thoughts are with you hun xx

    I am new to this forum so i hope im doing this right

    I could have written your post myself. I had pretty bad pre-eclampsia with DS and i have a specialist appointment coming up to determine if i will have another ceaser with this bubs or try for VBAC. I have a pretty strong feeling as this bub has a different dad i will get P-E bad again.

    I hope it all goes good for you hun, and enjoy your chocolate hehe ive already been eating choc, ill just say its to prevent P-E now. haha.
