For those who are having c-sections

Have you scheduled your date yet? And if so, how many days prior to your due date is it scheduled? My docs office will not allow scheduled c-sections before your 39th week. So I just scheduled mine today for April 28th which is 3 days prior to my due date. And now I am scared I am cutting it too close. I definitely don't want to go into labor! I know it really isn't a big deal if I do, but that will throw off my planning! :) So maybe I should have done it closer to my 39th week instead of my 40th week. I always second guess myself.

Lurking - My ob schedules them for 39 weeks. I just had one when I turned exactly 39 weeks.

I'm 39 weeks on a Saturday so I don't think they schedule c-sections on the weekend.

I'm assuming you are a FSU fan?? My favorite team!

I am scheduled for 39 weeks to the day (its a Friday). If they do it before that, most doctors will require an amnio. You may want to move it up to that Monday just to be safe. There are no guarantees with labor though. Both my girls were 10-14 days early and c/s. If you just scheduled it today, it is probably not too late to call and request the change. They don't notify the hospital right away usually. HTH.
