  • for me they did the second the week before my due date but they said the stipulation on that is that there is an early (first trimester) ultrasound for dating purposes. otherwise they would wait til the 40th week.

  • around here in NC, scheduled c sections are done @ 39 weeks. Baby boy #3 is due Sept 16th and he is scheduled to arrive on the 14th b/c the ob that I want to deliver him is on call that day. We will see how things work out.

  • Mine was scheduled right on my due date. I didn't want a vbac. I was already cut so I didn't want to have cuts or tears in two places.
