c-section too early?

My due date is May 16th. My dr was going to schedule my c-section for May 12th but then changed it to May 6th because he will be out of town the week of May 12th. I'll be 38 1/2 weeks when I have my c-section....is this too early?

  • i had mine at 34 weeks and my babies were fine. I did get steroid shots a month before, but im sure your doc knows what hes doing. I don't think it is too early.
