My doctor told me my baby attached to my old c-section scar: Advice?

I’m terrified, moms… I just found out I’m eight weeks pregnant with my four babies… I was so overjoyed … once I went for an ultrasound, the Dr. came back telling me he has bad news… Apparently, the baby has attached to my previous C-section scar. Which the Dr. told me can be very dangerous. As the baby grows, it could rupture a blood vessel or tear open my Csection, and I could bleed out… I am so scared. Has any other mom had this happen? I don’t want to die, but I don’t want to kill the baby I seen in the ultrasound either. I goto hospital Monday morning… I feel so lost.

I would maybe get a second opinion on that.

Get a second and third opinion, see a specialist and take time to think about your options. Message me privately if you need to talk to someone. You have options, though some are not easy to make you are not a bad person for choosing what you feel is best for you.

That’s similar to an ectopic pregnancy isn’t it?

Definitely be seen by another doctor and specialist and know exactly what you’re dealing with before making any decisions

Are you pregnant with 4 or 1?

I would get a second opinion. Every c section you have leaves scar tissue and eventually it does build up and cause complications. You’re still super early in your pregnancy so you have options. Speak to a specialist

My second csection baby came out fine. But I had to have a hysterectomy shortly after because my uterus reattached to my scar and it was so painful.

Praying everything works out I just had to have a d&c and my family took it really hard

The placenta can move and move away from the scar as the baby grows, ask to speak to a specialist

Look dont let the “pro life propaganda” force you into endangering your life adn causing your kids to loose their mom. You can ALWAYS make another baby. Choose health 1st.
Get a second opinion if it makes you more confident in making a choice.

My second baby did this. I was eligible for VBAC with her but had to schedule a repeat csection because of this. She came out perfectly fine. Get a second opinion! I had complications throughout the whole pregnancy but it was worth the second opinion.

I agree with the others a second opinion is in order. If I were in your shoes (providing the first doctor was right) I would side with the children outside of the womb they need you. I’m rooting for you momma!

How did they see that already? The placenta isn’t really formed yet

Definitely see a specialist and find out your options. They should be able to give you more information about the type of attachment. Your doctor is right though. This is a big risk of multiple c-sections that many moms aren’t ever told about. Hopefully it is just attached low and not too deep. It isn’t abnormal to be low at 8 weeks. Get all the facts.

I’d be looking for a second opinion along with a referral to a specialist especially if you want the baby. Do everything you can and then you decide I really hope it all goes well .

I know someone who had a stillbirth csection then this happened and at 34 weeks her uterus ruptured and baby died baby was scheduled to be born at 36 weeks cause of this. It definitely is scary. Poor mom lost 2 babies in 2 years.
