So, I had a c-section almost 2 years ago and we are due for a new baby in Nov! this time around we are planning on having a planned c-section. I can't really make up my mind. I know that it would be much easier because we live away from family and if we plan it I can make sure my mother is here when the baby is born and she will be able to hlep out with the other two kids as well.. Anyway.. The doctor called and gave me our date and time and when I huge up it downed on me that she just told me the birth date and time our baby will be here.. I feel like that is unnatural lol I feel like we should just let nature take its course and when the baby is here the baby is here.. If its a normal birth fine if not then thats fine to... Do I sound crazy! lol How did you feel? I know there are other things to consider also like who is going to watch my other children! But, I just can't help but feel weird about it!Answer Question

I had a emergency c-section with my first then 15 months later we had a planned one. For me having it planned was the best option because of health reasons. Don't plan one if you don't want to just because it is convenient for everyone else. Follow your heart and it will never let you down. Good luck and Congrats!!

That's probably a pretty natural response. I've had 4 c-sections (all planned) and my 5th is in 2 weeks. It never really bothered me knowing the date and aproximate time of birth. I guess that's why we never found out the sex of each kid. At least there was some surprise at the end.
I keep having this weird feeling that I'm going to go into labor this time. I never even came close with my other 4 kids but this one...I'm just having more and more BH and they are getting stronger and stronger. That would be bad. I'm alone with 4 kids and no car. My husband lives 2000 miles away and wouldn't be able to get back for who knows how long. I only have my dad to watch the kids but have no way to get to the hospital (I take the bus everywhere right now).
