36 weeks preg. Baby is normal. Cephalic.Whether a c- section or normal delivery is good for me? I had a prev myomectomy removed very small fibroids(2cm)
Operative report: Having a c-section after a myomectomy is dependent on the extensiveness of your surgery. If your surgery required entry into the inner uterine lining, then you might be at a higher risk of uterine rupture with a normal vaginal delivery . However your fibroids seem very small , unlikely to have done significant damage , especially if laparoscopic. Check with your ob; i'd lean towards vag delivery. ...Read more

Yes: Hi! Cephalic presentation means that the head is down which is the right position for a normal vaginal delivery. Since it's only 20th week, baby still has some room to move but most likely will not turn around.

You will be examined well before labor upon starting labor to confirm cephalic presentation. ...Read more
