I'm pregnant with my second baby. My doc and I talked about delivery options. She is very open minded to anything I am curious or concerned about. I'm due around January 10th but asked if I could have a New Year's Eve baby.
My doctor said that it would still have to be a c-section due to medical issues but provided everything else goes well with the pregnancy she didn't see anything wrong with it.
I mentioned it to my mom and SIL and they are both telling me to wait, it's probably not a good idea to go early. I was induced at 37 weeks with my son because of other complications with that pregnancy. Those same issues have not shown up in this pregnancy. I wasn't asking to go a month early, just 10 days early.
If it's ok with my doctor to deliver early should I be concerned with what others think? I have known my doc for 10 years and she is amazing. I wouldn't do anything without her approval.

If your only reason is to have a News Year baby then don't. I think it's selfish. If it truly is needed then so be it but let that baby come when ready.
