aging placenta

Hey pregnant mamas. I went to my dr appt yesterday and found out that i have an againg placenta which i guess is making my son not move sometimes due to him not getting enough blood and maybe even nutriants (i probably spelled it wrong lol). So i had to take 2 steriod shots for his lungs even though im full term 37+2days she just wants to make sure he has no NICU time. Butttttt i also wanted to have a vbac i have a 13 month old but dr said she doubts if thats a good option due to my aging placenta plus its to soon to try a vbac she says. If all goes well with the steriod shots she says the longest i can keep him in is til the 1st if it does then this Sunday he has to come out but im due the 14th. Sorry if its too long but im not sure of what i should due i, i want to go with the safest option for my child first. I think c section is best because of placenta. What yall think.????

P.s. i had an emergency c section with my first cause his heart rate dropped to the 70s for 4 mins they were scared he wasnt gonna make it.

I would go with Des advice and get the c section.  I wouldn't want to keep him in there any longer if the placenta is not doing it's job as it should since the placenta is baby's lifeline.  Since u took the steroid shots, all will be well with baby with a c section.  Happy holidays and goodluck.

I'm am 34+4. I have placenta issues too. In two weeks he dropped from the 50 percentile to the 30 percentile. I am going Jan. 5 for another ultrasound. We will decide from there. He's is also beach. C section is not my best option but it might be my only option. Unfortunately you have to decide what's better for baby. Regardless of what you want or planned
