    Overweight and Scheduled C-section

    Hypnotickah posted:
    I have had 2 previous c-sections. I am on my third child and my last. I am very overweight , but this time around i have a different OBGYN.
    during my last visit, my OBGYN told me he's thinking about making my c-section incision starting from the top off my belly button upward for about 4 inches. Has anyone heard of this? he says my baby is up high. it's rather scary to think about. My surgery date is january 18th. I do have a history of MRSA, that i had a few years ago. maybe this is why?
