Good morning ladies,
I am now 33 weeks pregnant and am supposed to get a c-section in about 5 weeks. Due to my intense Grand-Mal Epilepsy and the fact that I've had 2 seizures during my pregnancy, I am not allowed to give birth naturally as it is too risky for both me and my baby.
I'm worried about what could happen if I go into early labor. Will an emergency c-section be done or will I die giving birth. With my son I had a c-section 21 days prior to the due date, but my daughter is schedule to be born only 9 days before my due date. Plus, this pregnancy is not going as "smooth" as my first with epileptic seizures, high blood pressure and a lot of pain and discomfort.
Since last night I've had a heavy, uncomfortable feeling in my lower abdominal which turns into painful cramps at times. My ribs are so sore, that if I sit up straight, it becomes hard to breathe. You can actually see from short distances the way my baby is moving around in my belly as my belly is always moving. My lower back is also in permanent pain.
Can someone please tell me if I'm going into early/pre-labor?
