Hi all, I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant and meeting with my consultant tomorrow, my history is 4 early miscarriages and 1 still born, after loosing my son the pregnancy that followed ment I was regularly checked an put on clexane injections every day that I do myself, she arrived safely by emergency c section due to pre eclampsia 4 years ago and here we are with my second girl, consultant has said with my history c section is a sensible option, due to my still born and the preeclampsia my anxieties are already through the roof and going to get worse, which I know is no good for me or little one, could I argue for a section at 37 weeks??

You could always talk to your doctor about it, theres no harm in asking right? Just don't get your hopes up for it because you will be crushed if they tell you no. Your doctor knows whats best and if he feels it's necessary to get her out he will.
