  • Yes. They dont want to risk you going into labor before you have your c-section. This way it does not become an emergency procedure.

  • Yep! My last one was a week before my due date, and my doctor said with this one it will probably also be a week before.

  • I just gave birth to my 2nd daughter via c section a month ago and my c section was scheduled one month before my actual due date.

  • Yes - like someone else said they don't want to risk you going into labor. My doc would go NO MORE THAN seven days - hard and fast rule unless something was wrong. My last one was scheduled at 36 weeks also, but I had issues.

  • I've had 5 scheduled c-sections.  The first one was 11 days early (I forget why, she's 10 now).  The other 4 were scheduled within 1 week of my due date.  The last 3 being exactly 1 week before my due date.
