When should we be discussing birth?

My dr and I discussed a VBA2C during my first trimester. Basically just seeing if it was an option.

He said we would discuss it in more detail closer to time. I'm now 35 weeks and it hasn't even been mentioned.

When I do see my OB he comes in, measures me, hears the heartbeat, and says "see you next week"

Idk my previous OB would have been discussing this in MUCH more detail well before now.

Also if I'm slow to reply I'm mobile and my signal isn't very good.

Then why have you not pressed him for more information before you got so far along?

Now. Probably before now would've been ideal, but he is probably avoiding it. C sections are easier on doctors, compared to waiting for natural labor, so he will probably push that way.

Its not his job to bring it up. You are in charge of your own care.

Don't let him leave the room till you discuss it to your satisfaction.

I started discussing it at 15 weeks. You definately need to start talking... and ASAP. I'd set up an extra appointment just to talk about your options.

I wouldn't tell him anything. Then he can try and force a c section. You go into labor and refuse a c section.

I've brought it up MANY times... No answers, and if he's in the room more than 2 or 3 minutes its a freaking miracle.

He doesn't even act like he hears the question.

Tell him next week you want to discuss it now and you will knock him down and sit on him if you have to.
