  • I had my second c section at 38 weeks and was given that date around 6 months. I had really bad hypertension and a swollen heart with my first. So I think that they were trying to avoid complications.

  • I had mine at 36, but I was in preterm labor at 28weeks on med to stop contractions and stop me from dialating any further than 2cm. and I had high blood pressure and high blood sugar....Good luck

  • My first section was sort of a last minute thing. I had about a day's notice.

    With my 2nd & 3rd sections, we decided on a date together (my dr. & I) about 2 months ahead of time. I don't remember the actual week(s) I was in.

    My 1st section was done at 42 wks, the 2nd at 38 wks, and the 3rd at 37 wks.

  • I know I am going in around 39 weeks but I was never givin a date yet. He keeps telling me that he will call and make a date with the L&D ppl but I hear many ppl saying that they got to pick the day, but he is picking it for me.

  • The date was set around 35 weeks for a c-section at 37 weeks with my twins. It probably would have been later with one baby unless there was a problem.
