  • they let you schedule it within a 2 wk window before your due date. my family personally never made it that far me and my sis we have to have c-sec and we never make it to the date they schedule.

  • 37 weeks is considered full term, so as long as you dont deliver before then, it should be fine. By the way, January 25th is a great day for a baby to be's my birthday!!!

  • Depending on your Dr. My Dr. would not take my twins via c-section any sooner than 38 weeks even though I was in misery.

  • Talk with your OB. Unless some of these posters are YOUR OB then they have no clue what they are talking about. NO ONE CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION EXCEPT YOUR OB.

  • yup most OBs will allow 38 weeks. With my son I was due August 1st; and I got to be scheduled for the 23rd of July; I loved it!
