C-Section Question

My 4th pregnancy and this one has to be a C-Section like my prior. I am 2 cm dialated and 50% effaced.
How dialated do you usually need to be before the Dr decides to take you in to do the c-section?
my last one.. I was at 4 cm dialated with strong contractions when they took me in. So just curious to know what the norm is!! Thanks

They will usually just schedule you in unless you start with contractions like you did in the past.  You can go for a few weeks at 2 cm :) Good luck!
