When do you normally get find out your schedualed c section date?

This is my first c section, didnt have one with my daughter so im wondering when do you normally ask or find out the day. My baby is not due till october 6 but ive been reading they usually do it 2-3 weeks before you due date to prevent labor from starting.

I have a full placenta previa and my dd was born 1 week early so i dunno if that will affect when i may be scheduled for one.

  • Just ask. Sometimes things like that just slip the Dr's mind when it's months away. They're more focused on the here & now.

    I knew months in advance.

  • my doc wouldn't schedule til i was 37 weeks. and then they only did it at 39 weeks and that was w/an early ultrasound. they said if i hadn't had an ultrasound in the first trimester they would have done it in the 40th week, and if i'd have gone into labor before then they still would have done a c-section, so labor starting shouldn't prevent you from having one.

  • usually they wont do it more than 1 week from your original due date, and you should find out around 20 weeks or so.
