  • My Dr. suggests them at 38-39weeks depending on your size and the size of the baby.. BUT every Dr. is different.

  • Im going to have a c-section again too and my doctor said 7-10 before my due date. I was chatting with another mom who had a 2nd csection and her tubes tied, and she said it didnt hurt that much after but she was a lil more sore and she thinks it was due to getting her tubes tied.

  • 2-3 weeks before if you are having a girl.

    1-2 weeks before if you are having a boy.

    This sounds ridiculous. Why is this? It can't have anything to do with size. A girl could be born larger than a boy.

    Size and being ready are not the same things, when born earlier girl babies tend to do better than boys, size has nothing to do with it. Preemie girls do much better than boys even though the boys tend to be bigger.
