If I asked do you think they would think about it?

I'm going to schedule my c-sec when I go to the dr. next time. They told me today that they do it around 39wks. I want her to be born earlier for my own reasons and they already say she is big for how far along I am. If I asked them and explained my reasons do you think they would think about it? They already think she will come early because my son was 6wks pre.

  • What are your reasons for wanting to deliver earlier than they're advising?

  • Your baby's lungs may not be fully developed yet? Unless there is a medical reason, I hope they wont do it!

  • people are SO SELFISH.... there is a reason 40wks is when your "due date" is set, and thats just an ESTIMATE... Seriousy, if you wanted things to be easy and convient you shouldn't become parents......

  • My girls were big and they were induced at 37 weeks because I had high blood pressure. I asked my doc to induce at 37 weeks with one I'm pregnant with now and he said he would think about it. I am on my own with my kids (not complaining) I can't tear alot or I won't be able to walk and I don't want to have a csection because I have a big baby. Girls' lungs are developed by 35 weeks 90% of the time anyways. If your having a boy I highly doubt they will do it though.
