When was your scheduled c section?

My c section is scheduled on my due date. I always thought when it was scheduled they did it at least a week before. When was your scheduled section?

  • It sounds like you have a good dr. My OB says it's always best to let the baby choose when they are ready to deliver.

    I have health complications that require me to have c-sections, plus I tend to go into labor early. So, my dr schedules mine 10 days before my due date. With my first I went into labor 2 days before my scheduled date and with my second, I was in the beginning stages of labor when I went in for my scheduled c-section.

    It's always better to let the baby stay in there as long as possible.

  • Mine will be scheduled 7-10 days before my due date. I guess every doctor is different and they know you and your situation best and they are keeping you and your babies best interest in mind! Good Luck to you!

  • Mine was at 39 weeks. Most doctors won't do it any earlier than that unless there's a reason they absolutely do not want you to go into labor. If labor itself isn't a risk for you, then it's best to go as long as possible and make sure the baby's really ready to come out, which could make a huge difference if the doctor is off on the due date.
