I've scheduled my 2nd C/S and its right at my 39 week mark. I got to pick the day, and sort of pick the time.. as the doctors tend to do them in the early morning, or around lunch. You will have to fast for 8 hours before the c/s, I was told tiny sips of water would be ok but thats it. At least for me, I arrive 2 hours prior, finish all my paper work, get hooked up to IV's and what not. Its after that point that I can not have any liquids. We didn't talk about scheduling it till I went to my appt at my 35 weeks.. granted I had health issues (non pregnancy related) that I had to take care of from my appt previously (was at 33 weeks). Just talk to your doc next time you go in, they'll be able to tell you when it will all happen.
