Thanks for posting your query.
The fundal position of the placenta and a grade II maturity is a normal finding.
This is not an indication of cesarean section. If you have had a previous c- section then your chances of having a C-section again in this pregnancy are higher.
But you can have a normal delivery too if the ripening of your cervix goes well.
Your gynecologist can assess your chances of having a normal delivery after a careful XXXXXXX examination.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

It has been 6 years with very heavy bleeding and enlarged uterus. Do I need o worry about heavy scar tissue being an issue in this surgery and can it lead to a full abdominal hysterectomy?

Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!
