Late c section

User - posted on 02/09/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I need a medical c section and I'm due March 28. Currently I'm 33 weeks. They said my baby lung not developing and he small so not scheduling c section til April 6. I'll be 42 weeks. They said 42 weeks his lungs will be developed but I've read 39 weeks safe. Why 42 weeks and what if I go in labor? Isn't it risky waiting after my due date because if I go in labor turns into emergency c section then.

The longer he is in there the better if his lungs aren't developing properly. If you do go into labor earlier then head straight to the hospital. The longer you leave it the more chance of an emergency.
I'm sure the doctors will also monitor you closely. They may even give you medication to help with his lung development.
